Crist Denies Trysts
GOP frontrunner: I have never had sex with a man
By Bob Norman

A young rising star in the Republican Party has boasted to
witnesses of his sexual relationship with Charlie Crist, the
frontrunner in the Florida governor's race who has repeatedly
denied that he is gay.
The GOP staffer, 21-year-old Jason Wetherington, told friends at
separate social functions in August that he had sex with Crist,
according to two credible and independent sources who heard
Wetherington make the claim first-hand.

Wetherington, who recently worked as a field director for U.S.
Senate candidate Katherine Harris and currently works for state
representative Ellyn Bodganoff's reelection campaign, also named
a man whom he said is Crist's long-term partner, a convicted
thief named Bruce Carlton Jordan who also recently worked for
Harris in her long-shot Senate bid.

Jordan made headlines recently when the Miami Herald learned
that the felon was working as Harris's travel aide. The
newspaper noted that Jordan, 42, was reported to be close
friends with Charlie Crist, whom he convinced to attend an
annual Florida Funeral Directors Association meeting in 2003.

Jordan was charged in 2003 with stealing thousands of dollars
from two organizations for whom he worked, including the
Tallahassee-based Florida Funeral Directors Association, where
he served as executive director. He completed a 60-day jail
sentence in February and will be on probation until the year
2011, according to state records.

When the Herald questioned Crist about Jordan this past August,
the frontrunner in the governor's race told the newspaper that
he doesn't remember the man. "I don't know who Bruce Jordan
is," he said at the time. "It doesn't mean I haven't met him. I
don't know who you are speaking about."

I asked Crist during a phone interview on Monday morning if he
had ever had sex with Jordan.

"No," he said. "I don't recall the name."


Crist is being challenged by a late-charging Jim Davis

1. The rumors have been flying for years.
But so far nobody has turned up a stained blue dress.

:rofl: :rofl:

I couldn't care less if he is gay, but, I don't like his hypocracy or Jeb Bush worship.

3. It's been widely known in Tallahassee for years, not news at all
it would be hyprocritical of us to use it though, imho.

5. He's in the same boat has Foley
Everyone knows but no one will admit it, but if anyone asks them they get all offended and blame the DEMS for lying about them.

6. So you are saying the Fla. Repubs know but vote for him anyway?
I don't think a gay Dem would have much chance, though that wouldn't be my
deciding factor. I'm surprised that the Religious right supports him.

7. I'm not surprised, because Republicans can do whatever they want
Then they go to their church and get forgiven for their little peccadilloes...
