In a historic move Bush revokes the pardon he granted to Brooklyn real estate developer Isaac Robert Toussie.

Bush revokes the pardon he granted to Brooklyn real estate developer Isaac Robert Toussie.

Toussie's was 1 of the 19 pardons Bush had granted the day before and the reversal is a historic move in a year of Presidential firsts. With the Toussie reversal Bush's exit pardon tally is 189, much less than other outgoing Presidents.
The reversal of this pardon has left people wondering just who is Isaac Robert Toussie that he would be at the center of this historic reversal of a Presidential pardon? Who was he, what did he do to get in jail, and why would Bush pull his pardon mere hours after setting him free?
Isaac Toussie is a pretty rotten scoundrel. In 2001 Toussie plead guilty to falsifying loan documents for 100 underqualified people, and lied to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development about his actions
