Outgoing New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson was just interviewed on Good Morning America. This makes sense: he has just returned from a trip to North Korea, so there is a lot of potentially interesting stuff to talk to him about.
So what did the show actually interview him about? Whether or not he is granting a posthumous pardon to the Billy the Kid, the outlaw who was killed in 1881. In fact, GMA got an exclusive: Richardson announced his decision on air.
Ah. Well, it’s good to know GMA has its priorities in order! Of course, every other network would no doubt have done the same … which is pretty much the problem.
Happy New Year everybody!
And the answer is: no. Richardson did not pardon Billy the Kid.
