All I can muster is a healthy laugh out loud at this news. It was a poorly kept secret in Florida while Charlie Crist was governor, and when the documentary Outrage (featuring my friend Mike Rogers, and directed by Kirby Dick) came out in 2009, he was effectively outed. It included information about Crist that was eye-brow raising at the time, but the mainstream media didn’t inquire very deeply into Crist, who got married in what is portrayed like a laughable shame in the doco.
So fast forward to 2012. Now comes a report that Crist, in a sad protection of his feeble closet, paid men off.
10 News has learned of allegations of homosexual affairs, a governor trying to kiss another man, and drunken escapades by former Governor Charlie Crist. These allegations come in the form of a Florida Department of Law Enforcement Investigative Report in the Republican Party Chair Jim Greer saga.
…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.
In addition to trying to force himself on Greer, the details shared of Crist’s inebriation are actually disturbing in their own right.
- 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.
Let’s go to the videotape.
…And the trailer for “Outrage”:
