Lawrence Tynes plans to ask Prez Bush for pardon of brother Mark

A very interesting piece from Brandon Brosh of the NY Daily News about Mark Tynes, the brother of Giants kicker and playoff goat-turned-hero Lawrence Tynes. Mark Tynes is serving a 27-year prison sentence for drug trafficking.

Lawrence plans to ask President Bush for a pardon of his older brother Mark, saying the punishment is too excessive for the crime. Mark Tynes has a long criminal history and President Bush has granted very few pardons or commutations so far and doesn't plan to add many more on his way out the White House door, so it seems unlikely that Lawrence will get his wish.
