"More people say they favor a pardon for Billy the Kid than oppose the idea after Governor Bill Richardson’s office set up a website and e-mail address to take comments ... Richardson’s office received 809 e-mails and letters in the survey that ended Sunday. Some 430 argued for a pardon and 379 opposed it. The website was created in mid-December after Albuquerque attorney Randi McGinn petitioned for a pardon, contending that more than 130 years ago New Mexico Territorial Governor Lew Wallace promised one in return for the Kid’s testimony in a murder case against three men."
