Former vice presidential adviser I. Lewis Scooter Libby is among more than 1,000 felons whose voting rights were restored in the past year by Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, according to a report to the General Assembly.
Libbys name is listed in the Feb. 23 report on pardons, commutations, reprieves and other forms of clemency the Republican governor is required to submit annually. Without elaboration, the report says Libbys civil rights were restored Nov. 1, 2012.
In Virginia, only the governor can restore felons civil rights. McDonnell has streamlined the process and, consequently, has restored the rights of more than 4,600 felonsmore than any previous governorwith nearly a year still remaining in his term.

I wonder if their right to keep and bear arms was also restored. Of course, the AP wouldn’t care about that.
Once can...thank Karl Rove for the witch hunt as he urged Bush (43) to appoint a special prosecutor when no crime was comitted.
he did nothing...it was Richard Armitage who outed Plame.
another thing Bush didn’t correct before he left office. Scooter Libby and the 2 Border Patrol officers needed to be complete pardoned.
Totally bogus witch hunt by Patrick Fitzgerald and agrivatated because Geo. W Bush was too chicken shit to right the wrong when he could have.
Wow, wonder what’s next...will Sandy Berger be granted permission to wear pants with pockets again?
“...it was Richard Armitage who outed Plame.”
There was no “outing” to be done. The intent of the scheme was to find some way, any way, to discredit and/or criminalize V.P. Cheney. Libby was the fall guy; somebody had to punished, if for nothing substantial then simply for being an associate of Cheney. Beware the vindictive spirit of the so-called MSM, especially when it is frustrated.
The press just did what it always does. I blame George W. Bush for letting his loyal subordinates dangle in the wind.
The Democrats would attack them with savage lies, and Bush absolutely never fought back.
And Sandy Berger's aide was Susan Rice, the gal who was trotted out to promote the silly video theory of the Benghazi attack.
Scooter Libby - a victim of KKKarl Rove politics.
Both G.W. Bush and Karl Rove should be horse whipped for what they did to Scooter Libby. He did NOTHING wrong! Richard Armitage was the “leaker” and Collin Powell knew it. Powell and Armitage are both a**holes.
