Acquited of Murder? I don't care. At least the other candidates were not charged. I'd rather go on the side of caution and pick someone who didn't need to be defended against double homicide - regardless of the outcome. Sorry, put me in front of two doors, one with Pantano and one with someone who had not been charged with murder and I am choosing the other guy.
Sure he was found not guilty, but it took the military about 30 plus years to decide DADT was a bad idea; from time to time they get it wrong.
