Supporters are circulating a petition to President Bush, posted on a pro-Stewart website called savemartha.com, requesting a presidential pardon for the lifestyle trendsetter.
“A terrible injustice has been done to Martha Stewart. Her only real crime was to be too successful, thereby eliciting the enmity of misguided and misinformed citizens who feel that she represents the face of corporate crime,” reads the document, written by John Small, the founder of Sunday Media, a marketing company based in New York.
By 8 a.m. ET Friday, hours before Stewart’s sentencing, 14,728 had signed the petition.

(Not that I expect anything to come from it, mind you.)
