Netflix’s Tiger King star Joe Exotic has made a huge decision, he is going right to the top to Donald Trump to ask for a pardon and to undo his criminal conviction for attempting to kill his archrival.
TMZ reports that Joe’s legal team out of Ft. Worth, Texas is preparing a case file that will be sent on to Trump, claiming Joe was wrongly convicted for the murder-for-hire plot against Carole Baskin.
They wrapped a big bus and plan to roll out the big announcement in a few days, but the endgame is clear get Joe out of prison.
And because there is nothing boring around Joe, he has also interesting grounds for a pardon. For starters, he told everyone who would listen that he wanted Carol dead and even suggested to various people — some he hardly knew — that he’d pay as much as $50,000 to have Carol murdered. Typically, people who seriously hire people to kill people don’t tell everyone who would listen that they’re marketing a murder plot.
Another thing is that the alleged hitman, Allen Glover, was the star witness at Joe’s trial, because he’s the only one who took money from Joe. Glover says Joe gave him $3k for the hit Joe says it was to get Allen the hell out of the zoo.
