“My team is delivering my pardon application to President Trump in the next week requesting a Presidential Pardon,” Joe, 53, said via email.
“If he wants to show the country and the world he is about honest justice and is not against the LGBTQ community, he will sign it the minute it hits his desk so I can be an advocate for justice reform and prison reform."
In a recent interview, Joe’s husband, 23-year-old Dillon Passage, said his lover’s legal team planned to drive a “car all the way to D.C. to deliver it in person."
"We all know the situation, the people who are actually in Joe's life," Passaged added. "We know he was confronted with this plot to take out Carole Baskin.”
Passage also claimed Joe was “in a really depressed mental state” and “taken advantage of by someone he thought he could trust” when it came to his legal mishaps.
Passage alleged, “There is loads of evidence that proves it, that was not used in the court case, that was thrown out by the judge.”
As OK! reported earlier, graphic photos provided to OK! show a bloody and beaten Joe after a recent incident after he was transferred to Texas in March from Grady County jail in Oklahoma.
"I was sexually assaulted by a guard in Grady County (Oklahoma), beat the f*ck up and stripped naked,” Joe said via email to Gay TV, and provided to OK!.
“I was tied in a chair (for) so long the skin came off my arms … and then locked in a room naked for eight days sleeping on a cold metal shelf on the floor with dried feces and sperm on it from so many others before me. There is no mental help there—it's just abuse.”
Joe’s lover said that if the pardon is rejected, “the appeals process is really going to show the world exactly the situation that has happened.”
In April, Trump was asked by a reporter about the potential of pardoning the Tiger King star. He admitted to not knowing anything about the case, but said he would “take a look.”
