Florida GOP Guv Candidate: "I never had sex with that man"

Charlie Crist's affair with a rising young Christian GOP star and his long time relationship with a convicted thief detailed. No word on the sex parties with Foley in this article. Stories moving off of the internet and into Florida papers.

Another candidate claims the candidate to be Jeb Bush's replacement came out of the closet but then went back in.
Florida investigative journalist John Caylor of, has uncovered evidence that GOP gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist maintained a gay relationship with a 16-year old male ten years ago. Crist, born on July 24, 1956, is 50 years old. His young one-time partner, born in 1979, is now 26. Crist, who, as Florida Attorney General, was able to hide his personal details under Patriot Act-inspired shield laws designed to "protect" law enforcement officers, allegedly lived with his young partner in a condominium at 1 Beach Drive, St. Petersburg Beach, Florida.

WMR has also learned that a number of gay Republican kingpins in Florida's media, have, on behalf of the Crist campaign, interceded with editors and publishers to prevent any news coverage or investigation of Crist's alternate life style. In fact, many of Florida's leading newspapers have endorsed Crist.
Crist is not Gay and other Florida Republican Lies.
October 3, 2006 -- Informed sources in Tallahassee, Florida have told WMR that Governor Jeb Bush was fully aware of ex-Rep. Mark Foley's conduct with underage male pages but sat on the information to protect Foley and another top GOP Florida official, Attorney General Charlie Crist, who is currently running for governor to replace Bush. Today, Jeb Bush said he had not previously known about Foley's behavior with the pages before being informed by House Speaker Dennis Hastert in a letter dated October 1, 2006. Bush said he was "dismayed and shocked to learn about Congressman Foley's unacceptable behavior."
However, according to our Florida sources, the FBI and Justice Department informed the Florida Governor's office, Attorney General Crist, and the Florida AG's Child Protection Cybercrime Unit at least a year ago about Foley's predatory emails and instant messages. WMR was told that Crist's conflict-of-interest in the case stems from Crist's and Foley's involvement in gay sex parties, some of which took place during 2003 in trendy Coconut Grove, Florida.

Informed Florida sources claim that up until now, Crist and Jeb Bush have been able to keep a lid on the once-divorced Crist's life style, touting his conservative Christian credentials, but that the Foley revelations will severely impact the Crist gubernatorial campaign. The links between Foley and Crist are certain to harm Crist with his conservative backers who admire Crist for his anti-gay rights stance. Floridians begin early voting on October 23."
Andy Eddy, communications director for the Broward Log Cabin Republicans, questioned just how "closeted" Foley was, noting that the former congressman was known to attend gay events with his boyfriend.

Eddy thinks Crist may be telling the truth when he says he’s not gay.

"He could be bisexual," Eddy said.

In a written statement, Patrick Sammon, executive vice president of the national Log Cabin Republicans, said the group is opposed to outing
So this is a variation of the Clinton defense "I am not gay, I am bisexual."

Air America had an interview with someone at a gay sex party Foley and Crist attended. Being gay should not bar anyone from public office, I think we should have more gays in office, but we need fewer liars in public office more.
