You mean something like this? http://www.usdoj.gov/opa/pardonchartlst.htm

Nice site. I'm curious what the unnamed offenses were that Roger Clinton and Henry Cisneros were pardoned for. Did Bill start the W.J.Clinton Fund by selling pardons on the Net?

Answers here. And here, in excerpt:

"Roger Clinton, who was convicted of drug-related charges in the 1980s. He was sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty in 1985 to conspiring to distribute cocaine. He cooperated with authorities and testified against other drug defendants."

"Henry Cisneros, who served as secretary of Housing and Urban Development during Clinton's first term in office. He was convicted of making false statements to FBI agents conducting a background investigation of him when he was nominated to the Cabinet post in 1993. They included misleading investigators about cash payments he made to a former mistress."

I'm not sure about the drug thing with Roger, but Cisneros' false statements about an extramarital affair had to resonate with Bill.
