Unlike former Gov. Rod Blagojevich, Gov. Pat Quinn has used his powers of executive clemency aggressively, denting the backlog of mercy petitions by granting pardons to 711 criminals.

As the Sun-Times "Watchdogs" reported recently, the long list of those forgiven by Quinn included Ald. Proco Joe Moreno's top political operative and a would-be Niles trustee.

Here are lists of those who received pardons in July pardons2012.pdf and those who received pardons from Quinn last year PardonsRecords August 2011 --- December 2011 (1).doc.

Know of any other interesting cases we've overlooked?
