Gary L. Wolfstone
Mr. Wolfstone has been practicing law for forty-seven years. He was admitted in Oregon in 1972 and admitted in Washington in 1974. He graduated from Whitman College and Harvard Law School. At Whitman College, he graduated Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa, with Honors in Major Study (Economics).
As a Constitutional lawyer and original thinker, Mr. Wolfstone has fashioned a Presidential Pardon which not only pardons federal offenses but also extends to and includes state law crimes. Contrary to the conventional wisdom ~ i.e., the print and broadcast media wisdom which is commonly accepted uncritically without the benefit of analytical thinking ~ Mr. Wolfstone reasons that the Presidential Pardon power is a "grant" of power and not a "limitation" of power. The founding fathers who drafted the U.S. Constitution have not included any express prohibition in our Constitution about pardoning "state law offenses" so it is clear that they leave open the "possibility" that Mr. Wolfstone has now offered as a "reality." Mr. Wolfstone offers this new Pardon Power to enrich the institution of the Presidency.
Mr. Wolfstone successfully completed the Harvard Conference on the Internet & Society in May of 1996 at Harvard University. Shortly afterwards, Gary returned to Seattle and formed Seattle Web Design, Inc.
Gary Wolfstone's favorite hero is in fact a "heroine," Sharon Christa McAuliffe who perished on the Challenger's ill fated flight of January 28, 1986.
