Obama pardoned a military officer chased by law for being gay


On Tuesday Obama pardoned a former Army captain who was arrested for homosexual conduct in 1989. He spent a year behind bars, was forced to quit the army and to look for a new job with a felony written in his documents. “He had a felony on his record. So when he came back to Georgia to find a job he could not get one because no one would hire him with a felony on his record and less than honorable discharge,” his attorney told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. as for the man himself, he is happy to be clear of all convictions. He did not think that he needed a vindication from President, but admits that it really helped him and he is very grateful to Obama.
