Good Time Charlie Crist the ‘Homewrecker’

I came across this story about a week ago, but I forgot to post about it. As they say, better late than never... especially when it involves the incredibly flexible and gelatinous, Good Time Charlie Crist!:

Via the Washington Free Beacon:

Charlie Crist, Homewrecker

The Miami New Times wrote a lengthy profile of the ex-Republican, ex-Independent, ex-governor, and Florida’s rumored Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist on Thursday.

“You’re a piece of garbage!” a broad, wavy-haired New Yorker recalls bellowing at Crist and his wife. They were in Manhattan, weeks after the governor had left Tallahassee in 2011. Todd Rome, Carole Crist’s ex-husband and a millionaire travel baron, remembers departing an Upper East Side bakery, clutching a box of cupcakes for his daughter’s birthday, when he spotted them.

Rome, CEO of Blue Star Jets in New York, lost it. Carole, he explains, had moved to Florida, married Crist, and abandoned their teenage daughters, Jessica and Skylar. She hadn’t returned any of their letters, texts, phone calls — nothing, he says. She simply dissolved into the Florida ether with Crist.

For a moment, in front of that cupcake shop on 57th Street, they all looked at each other, unsure. Then, Rome says, the couple immediately fled in separate directions. So Rome threw down his cupcakes and bolted after the former governor, yelling, “You have no balls! You’re a lowlife! Why won’t you stop and confront me?”

Crist, Rome says, evaded the confrontation by disappearing into a subway tunnel. “He’s a piece of shit,” says Rome, who has since remarried. “My kids were in the way of their lifestyle, and Charlie has never had a child, so he doesn’t want them. He married a woman with two children and then walked away. A people person? He’s a piece of shit.”

(Carole Crist declined to be interviewed for this story, and no impartial source has criticized her parenting. Charlie Crist said, “I’m not going to comment about my wife’s ex-husband.”)
