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.

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.
