Federal Presidential Pardon

A Study of Noteworthy Presidential Pardons

Armand Hammer

Posted on | April 25, 2010 | No Comments

In 1976 Hammer was convicted of illegally contributing $54,000 to Nixon’s campaign. He made the convictions under a false name. The underlying act of the conviction was in question at the time of the time Hammer made his original plea. The judge rejected the initial plea as a result of this information. Two years later, Hammer acquiesced and admitted his guilty.

Hammer, the self made millionaire doctor, received a great amount of criticism for his business tactics, but was a true philanthropist. Many thought Regan would pardon Hammer at the end of his second term, but he did not. George H. W. Bush finally pardoned Hammer, and Hammer was apparently very grateful for the pardon.
