This Day in the History of American Traitors

On this day in 1949, a jury in DC acquitted Mildred Elizabeth Gillars, known to American GIs as Axis Sally, of seven of the eight counts of treason brought against her for her numerous radio broadcasts for the Nazis during WWII. Gillars did only 12 years in prison, was released on parole and decades later died in her home in 1988 at age 87. She sounded a lot sexier than she looked. Or so I've been told.
Acquitted of all but one of the charges; what was the jury thinking, someone else was trying to demoralize our service men nearly every night for 4 years? Man, no wonder they never charged Jane Fonda.
