George Floyd’s Texas Pardon Request Withdrawn Over ‘Procedural Errors’

George Floyd's Texas pardon request withdrawn over 'procedural errors'

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott granted eight pardons Thursday, but George Floyd and 24 others were withdrawn from consideration by the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles due to “procedural errors.”

Floyd’s posthumous pardon request was for a 2004 drug conviction.

The governor’s press secretary Renae Eze stated, “The Board of Pardons and Paroles has withdrawn 25 clemency recommendations that contained procedural errors and lack of compliance with Board rules.”
