NPR's Richard Gonzales reports on the double assassination that occurred in San Francisco on this date 20 years ago. The killings of Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk had a devastating impact on the city's politics. Former Supervisor Dan White confessed, was convicted of manslaughter, served five years in prison, and subsequently took his own life. Since then, it's been revealed that the murders were politically motivated and that White had intended to kill two other liberal San Francisco politicians.
