Widow: Jim Morrison wouldn't have wanted a pardon
MIAMI (AP) -- 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.
Patricia Kennealy Morrison told The Associated Press Thursday that she's not pleased with the pardon and doesn't think the late singer would be either because he didn't expose himself on stage as some claim.
She says the conviction should be expunged or the verdict overturned as fraud rather than just pardoned.
She says the two were married in a pagan ceremony by a Presbyterian minister about a year before he was found dead in a Paris bathtub in 1971.
Jim Morrison was appealing the conviction when he died. Gov. Charlie Crist planned to ask the Clemency Board for the pardon Thursday and it is expected to pass.
