LINCOLN — A supporter of Johnny Rodgers' request for a pardon said Monday that he can't recall if the Husker football legend told him he used a gun to steal money from a Lincoln gas station in 1970.
On Sunday, The World-Herald published an article about Rodgers' insistence that he was unarmed, despite police records and eyewitness accounts indicating otherwise.
