Evers Has Now Granted 337 Pardons

His office says Tony Evers has issued more pardons than any Wisconsin governor since 1977.

The Evers administration announced 30 more names this week. In three years Evers has granted 337 pardons. His Republican predecessor, Scott Walker, didn’t grant any during his eight years in office.

Evers said he is proud of his administration’s work to provide second chances to people. Governor Patrick Lucey issued 457 pardons between 1971 and 1977.
