Contempt for Contempt

President Trump's pardon of Sheriff Joseph Arpaio of the crime of contempt is no doubt going to be met by the left with contempt. Under our law, after all, a pardon fully erases the guilt, as if the crime had never been committed. Even before the Arpaio pardon was issued, the New York Times dragged in professor Martin Redish of Northwestern Law School to suggest that such a pardon could be challenged because the sheriff was convicted of, as the professor put it, "violating constitutional rights, in defiance of a court order involving racial profiling." Good luck with that theory, professor. . . .
