Charlie Crist's Gender Bender
Via Pam's House Blend: Florida's newly Independent Gov. Charlie Crist was recently quizzed about allegations that ousted state GOP leader Jim Greer had organized a men-only Bahamas jaunt that was spiced up with women who were "involved and paid." TampaBay.com reports his answer in a way Crist, who's (poorly) battled gay rumors forever, may find less than helpful:
"Crist, who attended the Caribbean getaway, said the event was organized to raise money for his Amendment 1 campaign. He did not recall whether any women attended the meetings, but he said accusations of female escorts or entertainment were, 'absurdly false.'"
Emphasis yours, mine and ours.
Of note: Crist, now leading all polls in his Senate race, appointed Greer to the position he eventually lost; Greer is the subject of a criminal investigation for misdeeds committed while party chairman.
