In a joint letter sent to President Barack Obama, former Special Counsel to President Bill Clinton, Lanny Davis, Esquire, and Rev. Dr. Thurmond Evans have requested a pardon for U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah.

News of the request came Thursday in a late afternoon email.

The letter, available online at FattahCase.com requests a pardon for Fattah, “considering his record of service and the recognized irregularities in the process for this case.”

According to the website, Fattahcase.com was created by a group of former Fattah staffers “who have directly worked with him in his efforts to improve the quality of life for so many.”
