Charlie Crist recently got the better end of the “Fangate” debate fiasco. Essentially Charlie broke the rules, threw a tantrum and somehow still ended up making it look like Governor Rick Scott was the one acting childish.
Charlie Crist’s good buddy and close campaign confidant likes to get drunk and yell at college kids about how he LOVES getting high.
About a week ago Florida political junkie Javier Manjarres brought us the news that Charlie’s campaign had received some $40,000 in campaign contributions from popular Hallandale, Florida strip club “Scarlett’s.”
This week Manjarres is back with news that one of “Scarlett’s” competitors – a strip club called “Cheetah’s” – has also given the ex-Governor a hefty campaign boost. Cheetah’s owner Joe Rodriguez donated $50,000 to the sleazy, slimey and orange skinned Crist campaign!
Florida Republicans are seizing on Crist’s “2 for 1″ dance special to rail against him for not returning the $90,000 they say was raised “exploiting women and promoting illegal activity”.
“You would think a millionaire would not have to take cash from strip club owners to fund his own campaign. I called on Charlie to return $40,000 in strip club cash and we now find out he has taken even more – $50,000 – this time from a strip club owner with links to prostitution and drugs. Charlie Crist ignoring the call to do the right thing and return $90,000 in strip club cash is insulting to women.”-RPOF Chairwoman Leslie Dougher

But don’t worry, Florida folks. Charlie really cares about women’s issues and he hates seeing women get exploited.
Sure… and I have some oceanfront property in Arizona for sale…
