Politics are always involved

Tomorrow may be my last conversation with the Missouri offender who has an execution date this month. There is a chance, however, that his sentence will be commuted. How can I say that? Unless the whole clemency process is a charade, I don’t see how he … of all people … wouldn’t be commuted to life without parole.

But stranger things have happened, especially when politics are involved. And politics are always involved.
