      Then why has he been in hiding for the last few months? Only those active in politics know he exists.

      •  Crist never had an AMEX card. (0+ / 0-)

        Would all of you out-of-staters quit spreading falsehoods as our next Senator will be Crist or Rubio and if they are put into the same category of perks for themselves or family it will make it a wild card race.

        It's interesting that you all want to drag Crist into the personal corruption scandals (he never had an AMEX card) when it's Meek and Rubio with the direct family corruption ties.

        Meek wasn't even out of the starting gate in Miami, not known, and became embroiled in scandal with his mom taking $90 grand and a vehicle from one of his favored corrupt developers that is presently in court proceedings.

        Rubio "IS" being investigated for his abused AMEX card for personal expenses.

        I anticipate Charlie Crist being as Progressive (or more) and looking out for Floridians than our MIC/defense/corporate-enabling, C- Street member Senator Nelson that picks a few pet issues and screws Floridians the rest of the time. (as an established Senator, he had no excuse to oppose the public option while preaching that he was somehow trying to save Medicare?)

        •  You have the right to support Crist (0+ / 0-)

          I don't begrudge that, even though I disagree heartily.

          I am not an out-of-stater. I have followed all of these politicians for some time. I won't link again to the Herald story on the expenses by the Crist campaign but I think you focus on a technicality with whether Charlie Crist himself used the AmEx and ignore the expenses on his behalf.

          Please don't call me a liar. This is my assessment of how this affects the race. If I am wrong, time will bear that out. But it is not because I am lying.

          Please check out my blog Rantings From Florida. Someone has to do it.

        I'm in agreement with your comment and forgot to acknowledge it in mine above.  

        Remember how unhappy we were when President Obama was associated with his pastor and former colleagues in Chicago?  Crist has gone through an entire cabal of them in Tallahassee but it's not the same as his having taken illegal personal or family financial gain.
