Charlie Crist's corruption

I'm not talking about Crist's life as a "confirmed bachelor", before his late decision to marry a multi millionaire divorcee with children, just in time for the then self described "Reagan conservative" to be considered for vice president at the 2008 Republican Convention. There's nothing wrong with that.

And, if you're interested, there's already been a movie made about Crist and his "family values" friends. I think you can still get it "on demand".

I'm talking about the money Crist got by hobnobbing with Ponzi schemers and hanging out with his hand picked and now indicted Republican state party chair.
The Republican Party of Florida was sued Wednesday for $237,000 it received from Scott Rothstein's defunct Fort Lauderdale law firm.

Rothstein donated to the party from accounts of his law firm, Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler, on more than 10 occasions, states the lawsuit filed in federal bankruptcy court.

The political donations were not a legitimate law firm expense and the firm received nothing in return for them, according to the suit.

. . . The payments were fraudulent transfers made between 2006 and 2009, according to the lawsuit.

Of course, Republican turned independent, conservative turned centrist, singleton turned happily married heterosexual Crist is Obama's first choice for U.S. senator from Florida (ahead of any Democrat in the race).
