Thread Name: Gov. George Bush (Texas) & LEADBELLY??????
Subject: Gov. George Bush (Texas) & LEADBELLY??????

This smells like urban (net) legend, but I got a message recently saying that Gov. George Bush of Texas has revoked Leadbelly's 1924 pardon!! Bush felt the pardon was the wrong message to send to kids. Sure would appreciate some accurate info on this---if there is any.
