Arkansas Governor to Pardon Son of Felony Drug Conviction Before Leaving Office

Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe said Wednesday he will pardon his son of a 2003 felony drug conviction. The Democratic governor’s son, Kyle, who is now 34 years old, was charged more than a decade ago with possession of marijuana and intent to sell, for which he was fined and given three years probation, according to KATV. Gov. Mike Beebe, who is term-limited and will leave office in January, was the state Attorney General at the time of the arrest.

I have no problem with pardoning those convicted of drug charges, but why does the governor's son get special treatment. Why doesn't Beebe pardon all who have been convicted of drug charges?
