Here recently, the Republican Party of Florida has been going after Charlie Crist about his and his wifes tax returns. Crist revealed some of his tax returns, but through his campaign spokesperson, Kevin Cate, has said that his wifes returns are off limits.
The RPOF was accused of going after Crists wife.
Lets take a look at why that is pure bs, and why Crist and his wife should just release the tax returns:
Charlie Crist wanted to be John McCains running mate in 2008, correct? In the vetting process for that position, Crist would have had to release his and his wifes tax returns, and answer any and all questions John McCain and his vetting committee would ask, correct?
So why now, all of a sudden, are these tax returns so secret, and his wife off limits? If anyone thinks for one second Charlie Crist would have told John McCain that he could not have access to Caroles tax returns, they are crazier than Crist is for denying the access now.
Charlie Crist uses his celebrity as the former governor to help promote his wifes company, Goddessey. Take, for instance, the Texas trade show the company recently had.
If you scroll to the bottom of the companys Facebook page, who do you see posing with people in costumes? None other than former Gov. Charlie Crist! Looks like they are working together to me. Is Crist hiding money with Goddessey?
Now, if former Gov. Crist wants to keep his wifes tax returns a secret, and out of the public eye, why is he parading around at this trade show in Texas? Is that why he cant debate Nan Rich? Hes too busy posing with the people of Goddessey to allow Democrats in Florida to hear where he stands on the issues and to be able to see the TWO candidates side-by-side on the stage, answering to the people of Florida?
Some of these journalists that Crist and the Crist campaign like to whine to should really ask these questions and call him out on what clearly makes no sense.
How about it, Mr. Crist? Would you have provided your wifes info to the McCain campaign? Something tells me you would have!
What are you hiding now, Charlie?
