Nominated for a Nobel Prize?

Today on MSNBC while covering the attempts to get Tookie William’s death sentence commuted they mentioned he has been “nominated for a Nobel Prize.” This really is rather doubtful – first and foremost, nominations are kept secret for 50 years.

The last person to claim this was one of the doctors in the Terry Schiavo case who claimed he had been nominated – but it turned out he was nominated by someone who wasn’t authorized to nominate anyone.
