Former FL Gov Charlie Crist's law firm gives $50k to Obama Super PAC
From Alex Leary at Tampa Bay's The Buzz:

April 23, 2012


Morgan & Morgan, the giant personal injury law firm where Charlie Crist now works, gave $50,000 to a pro-Obama Super PAC. The contribution to Priorities USA Action was spotted by the Center for Public Integrity (story here).

It's not terribly surprising given John Morgan is a big time Democratic donor and has hosted fundraisers for the president's re-election effort. But it adds a layer to Crist's political conversion, from Republican governor to independent candidate for U.S. Senate to talked about Democratic candidate for governor.

The $50k is helping pay for ads like this one, that Prioritites USA Action is running in Florida.



View this ad here. In the 1985 black and white photograph, note the cash stuffed into Mitt's suit jacket at the base of his tie, as he celebrates with a group of jubilant, cash-waving associates. The faces of gleeful greed.


Script: WORLD VIEW

Mitt Romney.

He made millions off companies that went bankrupt while workers lost promised health and retirement benefits.

His own tax return from last year reveals he made twenty one million dollars, yet paid a lower tax rate than many middle class families.

Now, Romneys proposing a huge new one hundred fifty thousand dollar tax cut for the wealthiest one percent while cutting Medicare and education for us.

Mitt Romney. If he wins, we lose.

Priorities USA Action is responsible for the content of this advertising.





It's going to be an interesting next couple of years, particularly in Florida.


Be sure to tune in this summer.

I feel so out of place where I live. I know maybe 3 people who aren't ditto heads or Glenn Beck fans.
