Will Florida Elect a Gay Senator? Charlie Crist to Announce Run

The Pensacola News Journal reports that Florida Governor Charlie Crist, who is exposed as a gay man in the new documentary Outrage, will announce on Tuesday that he is running for the Senate:

Crist "Gov. Charlie Crist plans to make his long-awaited political announcement on Tuesday, probably setting off a Republican chain reaction by jumping into the race for retiring U.S Sen. Mel Martinez's job...For several months, Crist has refused to say whether he would seek re-election or run for the Senate, insisting that he was solely 'focused on Florida' through the legislative session...With Crist running for the Senate, a scramble for the governor's mansion is assured. The entire Cabinet is likely to run, thus opening up statewide races for those posts."

Outrage_small Crist is a major focus of Kirby Dick's new documentary Outrage, which exposes closeted politicians and their hypocritical voting records. The film shines an especially unflattering spotlight on Florida Governor Charlie Crist, devoting much of its time to the stories that have already been told (by alternative press) about the governor, and his various relationships with women which have fallen conveniently during campaign periods. It also asks why mainstream media has refused to cover them. The filmmakers attempted to talk to Kelly Heyniger (pictured, with Crist), Crist's last girlfriend before marrying wife Carole Rome in the run-up to McCain's VP pick. His relationship with Heyniger ended in 2007. The filmmakers wanted to ask her about his sexuality. Heyniger told them: "I think I'll just keep my mouth shut...call me in 10 years and I'll tell you a story."

Outrage opened this weekend in San Francisco, West Hollywood, Philadelphia, New York, and Washington D.C..

  1. He supported amendment 2. Of all the potential to elect a gay senator, I certainly hope it's not this man, assuming he's gay.

  3. No "assuming" necessary. He's a viscious self-loathing closet case, and enemy of the LBGT people everywhere. All the skinny's in the movie.

  6. I thought he didn't come out, so to speak, either way regarding Amendment 2. I might be wrong however.

  7. But, does anybody have any "TRUE" evidence that he is gay?

    Or are the producers of Outrage indirectly implying that he is so closeted that he is "celibate"!

    Who has slept with him??????

  8. "I thought he didn't come out, so to speak, either way regarding Amendment 2. I might be wrong however."

    He did come out, in favor of Amendment 2. He may be closeted in his sexuality, but he was open about being anti-gay going into the last election.
