TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Thanks to AP for this story. The Doors singer Jim Morrison will get a posthumous pardon for an indecent exposure conviction in Florida after Gov. Charlie Crist got a commitment for the second of two votes needed from other members of the state’s Board of Executive Clemency to approve it.
Morrison was appealing the conviction when he was found dead in a Paris bathtub in 1971. The meeting Thursday comes a day after the singer would have turned 67.
Crist can’t issue a pardon on his own. He and the three-member Cabinet serve as the Clemency Board. Approval is required by the governor and at least two other members.
The did-he-or-didn’t-he debate has been revived by Crist’s interest in the case. The surviving band members say a drunken Morrison teased the Miami crowd, but never exposed himself.
The managers and guests of Best Panama City Beach Condo Rentals www.bestpanamacitybeachcondo.com want to know if you were in Miami that fateful day. Did Jim hang it out or not? Let us know.
