Jeb Bush covered up Mark Foley Scandal along w/"The People's Governor" Charlie Crist
Never mind that Charlie isn't governor, Jeb is, but many of Charlie's signs say "the people's governor" .

Apparently, Jeb knew all about Mark Foley's shenanigans, as did self-hater, Charlie Crist. Makes me believe that the ENTIRE Republican side of the aisle and in the White House, along with many in Florida, knew that Mark was bonking boy pages and were hoping they could contain this until after another election cycle or longer.

This video is awesome, that guy on The Daily Buzz on the CW network did a good job with this story.

1. JIM DAVIS
is only 2 points down as of a few days ago. Let's hope the local news addresses these allegations from the REPUBLICAN Jason Wetherington who worked on the (hold on, I'm laughing ---) Harris for Senate campaign earlier this year.


GO JIM DAVIS!

3. *I couldn't agree more*
I watched it twice in shock n awe! This should catch some more traction here in FL., how much remains to be seen, but the rumors will surely give Davis an extra 1% of the voters. If it gets discussed at any length in the next week, Davis will win by more than 51-47 margin.

4. The way I hear it Charlie Crist is gay
That doesn't mean he hits on pages but it does call into question his fasade of a married gentleman. If he is gay more power to him but he should come out.

7. He shouldn't cheerfully sign Christian Coalition's petition to ban both gay marriage, civil unions.
Charlie and the Christian Coalition

September 3, 2005

Tsk Tsk, Charlie:

A gushing crowd gathered to see Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist at Miami's Versailles restaurant Thursday. Members of the local Christian Coalition chapter presented him with a petition calling for a state constitutional amendment to ban gay marriages and civil unions.

Crist cheerfully signed. His office released petitions for the ballot initiative to the state Supreme Court for review on the same day.

5. If there is any real evidence that Crist knew about Foley...
then he will lose the election in Florida! I hope the big papers are watching this.

6. St. Pete Times did bring up this allegation in yesterday's paper. Crist called the account "false."
NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT: He's denied it publicly, repeatedly, and clearly, but Republican gubernatorial nominee Charlie Crist has yet to shake the talk that he's gay. There is no evidence that it's hurting his campaign, but the Crist-is-gay chatter that went on during the Republican primary has now ramped up among Democratic activists and liberal bloggers after a South Florida alternative weekly weighed in on the matter.

New Times Broward-Palm Beach did its part to "out" Crist with a recent story based on anonymous, second-hand sources. The report said unnamed sources had heard a 21-year-old man say he had a tryst with Crist - the young man denied it - and that the man had named another man supposedly intimate with Crist.

"There's no truth, just the ring of truth," is how the writer summed up his report. But it was enough to prompt bloggers and individual Democratic activists to flood reporters with e-mails demanding the media "expose" Crist.

Crist, who is single and dating a St. Petersburg woman, called the account false. Campaigning through Central Florida Saturday, Crist's opponent, Democrat Jim Davis, said he had heard about the New Times article but hadn't read it and considered the issue irrelevant.

"The issues in this campaign are education, property taxes and property insurance," the Tampa congressman said.
