Charlie Crist On the Record

If you can stand to watch it, here is Charlie Crist confirming with Greta Van Sustern last night that discussions were indeed in which Democratic candidate Kendrick Meek agreed to withdraw from the Florida Senate race.  Crist says "those conversations did take place," and that Meek had agreed to "do what's right for the people of Florida and the people of America and stop a right wing radical" from getting elected to the U.S. Senate.

Crist, however, refuses to say with whom he spoke at the White House.  Naturally.

CNN reports Crist confirmed to them that the White House was involved.

Rubio's position on this:

“Secret deals, special favors, and political kickbacks,” the Rubio campaign wrote. “That’s the problem with Washington today, not the answer. Government shouldn’t be picking winners and losers. And typical politicians shouldn’t be cutting backroom deals to hold power at all costs.”
Amen.  Crist looks more like a slimy opportunist than ever in this.
