Will California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger Help Paris Hilton?

A petition is circulating that begs California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to pardon Paris Hilton.

TMZ placed several calls this morning to the Guv’s office. The first person we spoke with said there were “rumblings” about the petition in the office, but he wouldn’t be more specific.

We then spoke with someone else who said she’d get back to us. We then asked if that meant the Governor had Paris plans. She giggled and said, “maybe.”

We love Kalieforneeya!!!

BUT WAIT! Just as we were about to publish the article (finger literally on the button), TMZ got a callback from the Guv’s Press Secretary, Aaron McLear, who said that Arnold’s office is prepared to give Hilton a fair shake! McLear told TMZ the office is prepared to treat Hilton’s request “no differently than any other request filed to the Governor’s office.” McLear added the Governor only acts in “extraordinary circumstances.” We asked if Paris qualified — all we got was a laugh.

So far, they haven’t received the petition, asking people to “sihn” (sic) in support of Paris.

While word of Paris’ pardon has made its way throughout cyberspace and all over mainstream news, McLear said that he’s not sure if Schwarzenegger himself is aware of Paris’ plight, but he did admit that Arnold’s “staff members certainly are.”

She should be an adult and own up to her behavior. In 45 days she will be released just in time to go shopping for the fall fashions.

paris needs to grow up and stop acting like a baby. she will not learn a lesson unless she serves time. it was wrong for her to say in her petition that brandy can get away with killing a woman but she is wrong. brandy is still in legal battles over the accident. she needs to learn a lesson. she needs to serve the 45 days in jail

You should remember she wasn’t sentenced for driving drunk, but for driving with a suspensed license. I think she should pe punished, but 45 days in jail, without any permision, just like people who does horrible crimes is a bit too harsh. A night or twoo would be fair. By the way, it’s very easy for us to say 45 is not a big deal, because it isn’t you or me who is facing it.
