Takes money from big Obama donor
By Chris Ingram
As if you need another reason (assuming you have half a brain) to NOT support Charlie Crist, here’s a good one compliments of the St. Pete Times “Buzz” blog from today:
Crist raising money on 9/11
If appearances matter, an upcoming fundraiser for Gov. Charlie Crist will generate some buzz. Not only is the fundraiser being held on the 8th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack, but the host gave more than $30,000 to Barack Obama.
An invitation lists the fundraiser at retired entrepreneur Fazal A. Fazlin’s waterfront mansion in St. Petersburg. The entrance fee is $1,000 or $2,400 for a VIP meet and greet and photo with the GOP U.S. Senate candidate.
FEC records show Fazlin gave about $35,000 to Obama last year and he dotted his lawn with Obama for President signs. Fazlin, though, is also a big contributor to Republicans and before settling on Obama he supported Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani. Fazlin has an interesting story, told in this New York Times column.
Boldface names on the invitation: Mel Sembler, Mayor Rick Baker, Sen. Dennis Jones, Rep. Jim Frishe, Mike Alstott and Deveron Gibbons, John Stross and Akshay Desai.

Now Chuckles is so far removed from knowing what is on his schedule beyond the present day since he probably leaves stuff like that up to Repulican Party of Fatboy (RPOF) Chairman Jim Greer, that you can almost hear him apologizing for this “un-intentional mistake” and changing the date.
What Charlie “Republican Bill Clinton” Crist can’t hide from is the fact that he is at best an Arlen Specter Republican and at worst Obama-lite. But ultimately Charlie’s biggest problem with people who care about the future of our country is this: the guy doesn’t give a damned about our country’s future.
Only his own.
