Under the constitution, the President has the authority to grant pardon for federal offenses, including those adjudicated in the "United States District Courts", the "Superior Court of the District Of Columbia", and "Military Courts- Martial". In contrast', the President cannot pardon a state criminal offense. Instead, applicants seeking clemency for a state criminal conviction require what is known as a "Governor's Pardon" from the governor of the state. Of which, in this case would be the Governor of Maryland. Interesting enough', the rules governing applicant's with federal convictions states, "Applicant's must satisfy a minium waiting period of (5) year's before he/she becomes eligible to apply for a "Presidential Pardon" on a federal conviction".

It'll be nice if this #I Vote 20# issue as controversial as it is, made the ballad for the Nov. 2014 Gubernatorial elections. That way it'll be unveiled for the world to give an opionion on it but...............some things just take time and a little muscle.
