One more creepy detail about Charlie Crist

One thing we can be thankful for this election cycle: the rise of Marco Rubio has not only given the GOP a new start on the national stage, but it has also exposed Charlie Crist for the creep that he is. Remember that just two years ago, this guy was thought to be such a strong leader that he was on the short list for John McCain's vice presidential candidate. Now, two years later, we know that Crist has absolutely no principles. He will do whatever he can to get elected whether it's switching parties, making dishonest allegations about his opponent, or scheming to get his Democratic opponent to bow out of the election. When Kendrick Meek wouldn't go along, Crist made sure that the story got out just to undermine Meek as much as possible.

And now we get this little tidbit of how he tried to convince Meek to drop out by giving the Democrat, Crist's sister's cross.
“He said, ‘If you were to drop out and work with me and help me we together can beat Marco Rubio,’” Mr. Meek recalled. “I said, ‘Governor, that’s a non-starter.’

“Then he dug down into his pocket and pulled a small cross out,” Mr. Meek continued. “He said his sister gave it to him and he wanted to give it to me so I would think about it.”
Who does things like that? The guy is just creepy and it will be a pleasure to see him sink into a well-deserved political oblivion after this election.
