Tallahassee, FL - There are plenty of pictures from the 1969 Miami Doors concert, some showing Jim Morrison with his hands in his pants, but none showing Morrison exposing himself. A rough recording shows plenty of profanity.

Dozens have emailed Governor Charlie Crist urging a Morrison pardon. One woman claims to have been in the front row and seen nothing, but a retired St. Pete Police Officer says its unwarranted, others say he would be a sex offender today. Still Governor Charlie Crist will propose the pardon in December.

“You know. When you review the case, you look at the facts that surround it, more and more comes out that there probably may not have been any inappropriate act that was done,” Crist said.

In addition to the governor, a pardon requires a yes vote from two of the three states’ elected cabinet officers.

Count Agriculture Commissioner Charles Bronson in the yes column.

“ The disputed facts and the situation, as the commissioner said, may or may not be a crime by today’s standards,” Terry McElroy, Agriculture Commissioner spokesman, said.”

CFO Sink is leaning towards a yes, but she wants to see a report from the parole commission.

The final vote: Attorney General Bill McCollum is non committal.

“ And he will take this case as seriously as any other case,” Sandy Copes, Attorney General Spokeswoman, said.

The current prosecutor in Miami-Dade says she will not oppose the pardon.

    Hey Elizabeth, what did I misspell? Way to show your true intelligence. Illiteracy is an ugly thing. GOOGLE Jim Morrison and read about him; if you can read. It is called research. Research is what you do when you want to find out more about a topic. You may have done some research in elementary or trying to get your GED. I didn’t put my name because I was pressed for time at work. It is called having a job. You can thank me later for your government check that you receive every month.

    So we are going to pardon a heroin/cocaine addict that vandalized FSU when he attended college here, exposed himself to fans at a concert, and attempted to incite a riot in Miami. Why? He hated Florida. What good will come out of this other than giving Charlie Crist some headlines?

    WOW...did Charlie pull this thought to pardon Morrison out of his rear end where his head seems to be?! There are more important issues going on in this messed up state than to worry about something that happened 40 years ago. I will always be a huge fan of Morrison whether you political "do gooder..time and money wasters" pardon him or not.

    How much sense does it make to pardon a dead man? Crist, if you're going to try to pardon someone they should at least be alive! Do something worth while in your last days like packing up and keeping your mouth shut.
