Rep. Charlie Crist (D) is hands down the best retail politician in Florida history. There is no doubt about it.
Crist has proven that he will do or say whatever it takes to get you to open your wallet, and get you to vote for whatever position he is running for.
Crist will also change his position on just about any political issue just as long as it is political expedient for him. Just recently, the former “pro-life” Charlie fundraised on bashing Republicans for supporting legislation that banned late term abortions.
Now, Crist is fundraising off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In hopes to reach his re-election campaign monthly totals, Crist sent out a fundraising email asking supporters to donate to “help keep a loyal Buccaneers fan in Congress.”
The email also stated the voters, constituents, or donors, could “count on him” to put their “family ahead of politics.”
Here is Crist’s fundraising ask:
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers face off against the Arizona Cardinals today at 4:00 pm. It also happens to be our mid-month fundraising deadline (October 15th), so we’re asking:
Charlie grew up in Pinellas County and has been a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan ever since they joined the NFL in 1976. His Bay area roots run deep. That’s why you can count on him to put you and your family ahead of politics.
