.. Virginia ‘ s Supreme Court has stepped in an slapped down Governor terry McAuliffe ‘s gross abuse of power on the blanket use of pardons ..

.. in the U.S. constitution , the blanket use of the pardon , clemency , and reprieve authority is allowed . Andrew Johnson did it in 1869 to blanket pardon all of the Confederates , including Jefferson Davis . However , Virginia ‘ s Constitution is different . In Va , it must be done one at a time ..
