(Jan. 27, 2017) — In what has been a very slow-moving process, it appears that signatures to a whitehouse.gov petition asking the Trump administration and Congress to grant a pardon to former Lt. Col. Terry Lakin and reinstate him in the Army are beginning to register.

By late afternoon on Friday, the petition finally reached the 150-signature level at which it was moved to the “public” part of the petition web page.  At 8:13 p.m. EST, it shows 171 signatures.

After the petition was launched last Saturday, it registered just one signature for at least three days.

It is believed that a specific technical problem exists by which signatures are not being properly logged and posted and renders it impossible to know how many individuals have actually signed.

The Post & Email will provide updates on the petition throughout the weekend as well as a follow-up to our interview with Terry Lakin Action Fund Trustee Marco Ciavolino published on Friday afternoon.
