Pawlenty Pardongate: The governor missed many red flags in clearing Jeremy Giefer's record.
Jeremy Giefer just can't seem to leave his daughter alone.

Giefer had his criminal sex conviction cleared by the Board of Pardons in 2008 only to be charged last month with sexually abusing his daughter hundreds of times over the past seven years.

Giefer already got in trouble earlier this month when he violated the terms of his release on bail by showing up in the parking lot of the place where his daughter was about to go to therapy.

In Giefer's court hearing today it was revealed that Giefer has also tried to make contact with his daughter through a third party. The conversation where he tried to make that arrangement was actually recorded at the Blue Earth County Jail where he is being held.

Prosecutors want Giefer's bail set at $1 million with conditions or $2 million without. His lawyer, Robert Docherty, wants something entirely different: $250,000 bail.

Before deciding how far to trust Giefer, the judge might want to consider the man's track record. City Pages has spent the last month combing through Giefer's history, and it's not a pretty picture.

Here's a detailed timeline of Giefer's life.
