GOP governor eyeing Senate run to be outed in film tomorrow
Published: May 7, 2009
Updated 4 hours ago


The Republican governor of Florida, Charlie Crist, who is strongly considering a run for Senate, will be outed in a independent film being released tomorrow.

The film, Outrage, tracks the outings of prominent gay political figures, such as Crist and former Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman. Its being produced by Magnolia Pictures and will appear in Landmark Theaters across the country.

Using some firsthand accounts of former sexual partners, old campaign footage (to occasionally humorous effect) and commentary from gay political media watchdogs, the film makes the case for each mans homosexuality, and presents his lifetime gay rights voting record, according to one reviewer. In each instance, the disconnect is staggering.

3. Charlie Crist is no shock...
...everyone in Flroida knows he's gay, including the Repugs. I attended a fundraising banquet not long ago where one of our board members ( a rich old blue hair Republican lady) tried to set me up on a date with him. (I'm a gay man if you hadn't guessed already)

5. I think that particular cat got out of the bag a long time ago.
Here's Charlie portrayed this week in my local paper: http://www.newsherald.com/sections/article/gallery/?pic=1&id=73966

I sent this link to an old friend. His reply: "Werk it, Miz Governor Lady!"
