Meanwhile, in Florida, the gay former governor Charlie Crist paid two of his lovers to leave the state -- and lots of other juicy stuff -- of course, he's a Republican -- a family-values Republican at that

As if Florida politics weren't already a mess, allegations are
surfacing that former Republican Governor Charlie Crist has problems
with alcohol, engaged in affairs with at least two men, and then paid
to keep the story secret. The Huffington Post picks up on reporting by
local station WTSP. Crist has responded, denying the allegations. The
allegations apparently arose from an ongoing criminal case against
Florida Republican Party Chair Jim Greer. From the WTSP story:

These allegations come in the form of a Florida Department of Law
Enforcement Investigative Report in the Republican Party Chair Jim
Greer saga.

Jim Greer is facing criminal charges and is set to go to trial on July
30 for allegedly paying himself to raise money for the Republican
Party of Florida. Greer maintains that former Governor Charlie Crist
approved the deal.

Now, discovery documents released point to allegations that as
Governor, Crist paid two men to leave the state to hide his
homosexuality and that he was a drunk and a liar.

The allegations come from Damon Chase, Jim Greer's attorney. Chase
told John Morgan of Morgan and Morgan where Charlie Crist works, that
if had to depose the former Governor, Crist would be embarrassed by
the following issues:

.. . .

And here are the embarrassing charges from the report:

- Charlie Crist is a homosexual and had homosexual relationships with
at least two men who were paid to leave the state to avoid
embarrassing then Governor Crist.

- Charlie Crist attempted to kiss Greer at a hotel in Beverly Hills,

- Governor Crist had drunken escapades and his security detail had to
cover for him.

- Charlie Crist attempted to run over people while he was intoxicated
and operating a golf cart.

Morgan responded saying that even if Crist was a homosexual, it had
nothing to do with the case, and the allegations were just were just
an attempt to embarrass Crist.

In addition, Morgan said if the former Governor were a homosexual he
would have to be a 'sick s.o.b. to try to kiss Porky the Pig' which
was a reference to Greer.

Morgan also said the allegations were similar to a cheap lawyer trick,
asking when did you stop beating your wife or asking when was the last
time he had sexual intercourse although he used a more crude term
"with your neighbor's sheep".
