Snyder Under Fire For Pardoning Attorney For GOP Donor

The revelation that Governor Rick Snyder pardoned an attorney for 5-hour Energy, the Michigan-based company whose owner is a major benefactor of Republican causes, brought a storm of criticism upon Mr. Snyder on Friday that the decision smacked of special treatment.

Mr. Snyder told The Associated Press, which first reported the politically charged background of Alan Gocha Jr., whom the governor pardoned for a drunken driving offense in late December, that he pardoned Mr. Gocha on the merits of his application, not based on politics.
