State Republicans moved the three-way U.S. Senate race to a new level Saturday, with party leaders pointing to an audit of their books they say implies Gov. Charlie Crist— now an independent candidate for U.S. Senate — ran up potentially "hundreds of thousands" of dollars in inappropriate charges.
Party Chairman and state Sen. John Thrasher said the expenses came to light during the just-completed forensic audit by Alston & Bird LLP — which was the examiner in energy giant Enron's 2002 bankruptcy. He said the party may sue their former standard bearer to get the money back.
Not surprised. When you lie down with dogs...
And the defense? Crist's camp is crying foul saying
..."party bosses" should "stop playing the same old political games and take a hard look at their own nominee" before attacking Crist.
Moral equivalency is seldom a good strategy.
