A woman who said she was married to The Doors singer Jim Morrison on Thursday called Florida's intention to pardon him for a 1969 indecent exposure conviction a cheap political ploy.
The widow of The Doors singer Jim Morrison says Florida's intention to pardon him for a 1969 indecent exposure conviction is a cheap political ploy.
A woman who says she was married to The Doors singer Jim Morrison says Florida's intention to pardon him for a 1969 indecent exposure conviction is a cheap political ploy.
Forty years after Jim Morrison was convicted of exposing himself at a wild Miami concert, this is the end: Florida's Clemency Board, egged on by departing Gov. Charlie Crist, pardoned The Doors' long-dead singer Thursday.
Jim Morrison was posthumously pardoned Thursday for a 1970 indecent exposure conviction in Florida, a move a woman who said she was married to The Doors lead singer called a cheap political ploy.
"He felt and he expressed to me on numerous occasions that he had been made a scapegoat of the counterculture movement," Kennealy Morrison said. "He was out there doing what he did, making himself a really easy target because he felt very strongly about it. Unfortunately they decided to go after him for it. It was a complete cheap, cynical, political ploy. That's the way I feel about the pardon."
"I have a real problem with the semantics of a pardon. The pardon says that all his suffering and all that he went through during the trial, everything both of us went through, was negated," she said.
