Yesterday President Trump teased the imminent announcement of a historic pardon.
We can now reveal who he believed deserved a reprieve: iconic suffragette Susan B. Anthony.
Anthony was arrested and charged in 1872 for casting a vote in Rochester, New York “without having a lawful right to vote”.
She was found guilty and sentenced to pay a $100 fine, which she never did.
Anthony, who died 14 years before the 19th amendment was ratified, later described her conviction as “the greatest judicial outrage history has ever recorded.
The president’s decision comes on the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment.
