Jack Quinn was vilified this week at a House committee hearing as an amoral fixer who manipulated friendships for financial gain during an effort to obtain a presidential pardon for fugitive financier Marc Rich. With two congressional committees investigating the controversial pardon granted by former President Clinton to Rich and with politicians in both parties lining up to denounce it, Quinn could be viewed as a would-be power broker who short-circuited his own career.

Republican Rep. Jack Quinn announced plans to retire after six terms in Congress from upstate New York, giving Democrats an open seat to aim for in the fall campaign. Quinn, 53, cited the rigors of traveling between Buffalo and Washington for his decision. "My family's made incredible sacrifices for me to do this job for 12 years," he said in an unexpected announcement. Quinn said he had no job lined up but did not rule out a future run for governor or the Senate.

I think the reason George W. Bush is emerging as the favorite is because of Al Gore's negative tactics (May 8). I was bothered by Gore's tactics in the primary and voted for him reluctantly. But enough is enough. While Bush is rolling out legitimate proposals that address problems in health insurance, education and Social Security, Gore repeats personal attacks about Bush's facial expressions. Gore's comments are out of line, and he deserves to lose. JACK QUINN Orange

Re "Clinton Pardons a Billionaire Fugitive, and Questions Abound," Jan. 24: President Bill Clinton's last-minute pardon of fugitive robber baron Marc Rich is the crime of the century--having illegally bilked U.S. taxpayers out of millions. It would be interesting to hear from those people who applauded the special prosecutor's pardon of Clinton now that they know what boldfaced shame and monetary loss he has foisted on the American people. Clinton and [former White House counsel] Jack Quinn's actions should generate a congressional probe as New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani has recommended.
