Charlie Crist: Florida Governor and Attorney General Don't Have to Defend Gay Marriage Ban: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-08-08 at 7.58.37 AM

In an interview with the Miami Herald, Charlie Crist says Republican Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi do not have to defend the state's ban on same-sex marriage in court and can make the choice to "make sure new and better things happen in Florida." 

Crist, who as Republican governor supported the ban when it was passed by Florida voters back in 2008, is now running as a pro-equality Democrat in this year's gubernatorial race.

  1. This man is the worst kind of elected politician. He has no core values and says what he thinks he needs to say (even when he is right) just to get elected.

  2. Neither did Charlie Crist when he supported Amendment 2. I strongly dislike unauthentic people and hate the idea of him ever becoming Governor.

  3. He evolved.

  5. Rumor has always had it that he's in the closet.

  6. Cowardice.

    Moral bankruptcy.



    I'd rather see Florida governed by a republican than see this man win.

  7. I don't care whether he has "core" values. What is important is he will do the right things. You are a moron if you prefer a Republican who will legislate against you rather than a hypocritical Democrat who supports you. Oh, I forgot. Isn't that the definition of a Log Cabin Repugblican.
    We can leave the "core" values for the faithful to play with.

  8. Assuming that Charlie Crist does win the Democratic nomination in Florida, anyone who supports gay rights in Florida who votes for a candidate other than Crist in the November election is an idiot!
