Texas Board of Paroles Cancels Drug Conviction Pardon for George Floyd
The Texas Board of Paroles and Pardons has withdrawn a recommendation that Black Lives Matter martyr George Floyd be handed clemency for a 2004 drug conviction in Houston, citing “procedural errors” in the move to wipe Floyd’s criminal record clean of the charge.
“The Board of Pardons and Paroles has withdrawn 25 clemency recommendations that contained procedural errors and lack of compliance with board rules,” said Renae Eze, a spokeswoman with Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
“The board will review and resolve procedural errors and issues related to any pending applications in compliance with their rules. As a result of the board’s withdrawal of the recommendation concerning George Floyd, Governor Abbott did not have the opportunity to consider it.”
Floyd had plead guilty to selling crack cocaine in the 2004 case, with his family later alleging the police wronged him in the matter. Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg had lobbied for the pardon, having received hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from globalist oligarch George Soros.
A spokesman for the Board of Paroles cited the abnormal number of pardon requests in 2020, calling for the board to more closely adhere to its rules and regulations in approving commutations and pardons for crimes.
Floyd had also been convicted of a felony home invasion robbery in which he pointed a loaded handgun at the stomach of a pregnant woman, later leaving Texas for Minnesota after serving a brief prison term for the crack-dealing crime.
George Floyd’s nephew was arrested earlier this month for intimidating the jurors assigned to Kyle Rittenhouse’s homicide trial, demonstrating far less sympathy for the now-exonerated Illinois youth than for his own uncle, whose supporters assert was wronged by law enforcement.
