Bush Spares Scooter Jail Time

Read it and weep. From the Associated Press:

President Bush commuted the sentence of former aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby Monday, sparing him from a 2 1/2-year prison term in the CIA leak case.

Bush left intact a $250,000 fine and two years probation for Libby, according to a senior White House official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision had not been announced.

Libby was convicted in March of lying to authorities and obstructing the investigation into the 2003 leak of CIA operative's identity.
