Let's all go to Cali to cheer her on!  
Celebrity heiress Paris Hilton is appealing to California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to pardon her for driving with a suspended licence and quash the 45-day jail sentence she is due to begin next month.

On a posting on her MySpace website, Hilton, the star of the reality TV show the simple life, urged fans to sign a petition asking Schwarzenegger to reverse the sentence handed down in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday.

“I urge all fans and supporters and all that are outraged by injustice to sign this petition,” writes Hilton.

Legal experts say that Schwarzenegger is unlikely to accede to Hilton’s pardon request. Hilton’s lawyers have said they plan to appeal the sentence.

Hilton, 26, was ordered to report to jail on June 5 to begin her sentence. She was stopped by police on January 15, and again on February 27 while her licence was suspended for an earlier bust for drunk driving.

Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer ruled she will not be allowed any work release, no furloughs, no use of an alternative jail and no electronic monitoring in lieu of jail.

“I’m very sorry and from now on I’m going to pay complete attention to everything. I’m sorry and I did not do it on purpose all,” she told the judge before he announced the sentence.

Seriously? This needs to go all the way to the Governator?
