Perhaps Gerry had it stolen in a moment of conscience. :up

Seriously tho, it would be very hard to ever learn "who done it", but

a simple trip to where ever Tricky has his works -(Whittier?)- would provide

the answer to your question. Or even a call to a person who works there might

confirm or deny.

Constitution of the United States, Section 2

The President shall.... have Power to Grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, [i]except in Cases of Impeachment

[/i]

Since Richard Nixon was accused of offences which were alleged to be impeachable, and since the House Judiciary Committee had voted articles of Impeachment prior to Nixon's resignation, President Ford had no power to pardon Nixon, so the pardon was and is null and void.

Of course you won't read that in the history books, or in the New York Times.
