Should Bush pardon Victor Rita for lying to Feds about weapon parts?

Libby got a commuted sentence after lying to Feds about lies about sales of nuclear weapon components.

Victor Rita got 33 months for lying to Feds about a kit he had bought to make a machine gun.

“Rita…whose…sentence was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court less than two weeks earlier.

Rita was sentenced to 33 months in prison for making two false statements to a grand jury about a parts kit he had purchased, allegedly to make an illegal machine gun.

Rita is a decorated combat veteran of the Vietnam and Gulf Wars and has no prior criminal history…. Rita’s lawyers argued that he was in poor health, had performed valuable government service and could be in physical danger of reprisals in prison for criminal justice work he had performed in his government job.

Victor Rita didn’t take the fall for Cheney. Maybe if it had been illegal parts for a shotgun….
