However, I don't think anyone was prepared for this development. An AP story dated 27 October 2000 filed from Montecello IL was headlined: "Presidential pardon sought for giving feathers to Hillary Clinton."
The feathers were on a dreamcatcher Peg Bargon made and gave First Lady Hillary Clinton in 1994. Bad choice of feathers, though, because they were of protected species such as bald eagles.
Federal agents read of the gift in a newspaper and found feathers from several protected species in Bargon's house. She claimed to have gotten then from "roadkill" and a zoo, but in 1995 pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of breaking federal wildlife protection laws. She paid a $1200 fine and shelled out another $10,000 to lawyers who kept her out of jail.
