Skip to comments.Charlie Crist Violates Debate Rules, Forces Debate Delay
Posted on 10/15/2014 6:25:22 PM PDT by South40
In violation of debate rules agreed to by both political campaigns, the ideologically-fluid Charlie Crist had his podium modified with a foreign object in order to keep him more comfortable at the beginning of the Florida gubernatorial debate, causing a delay until both sides could come to a resolution.
The Scott campaign eventually acquiesced to Crist's "request" that the debate rules be changed in order for Crist's comfort. The Crist campaign, for their part, maintains that they always requested a modification to the rules - but it's a modification clearly unseen and not agreed to by the Scott campaign.

“what polls show Crist ahead ?”
What did he (blowup doll) look like?
The rats are trying to blame Scott, the fag Crist caused the problem. He was “hot”, I guess there were too many good looking dudes in the audience.
Yes, he told the same un-useful story about his mother being abused in a prior marriage presumably in a lame attempt to curry favor with women -- it was weird hearing him repeat it at least twice. He comes off being oddly up tight in his presentation and speaks so fast he slurs the words making him almost unintelligible. In spite of his goofiness, he is the lesser crook of the choices we have for our governor, IMO.
Broward County = Ft. Lauderdale = the castle of the GAY community!!!
It’s obvious that his/her PMS could not stand the heat!!!
No doubt Scott was upset the mods let ms. Crist gets his/her shenanigans “approved,” who wouldn’t be upset???
Well, I understand Scott being upset. I hate Charlie Crist. But, I think Scott showed poor judgment in not coming on stage. I’d have gone out there as soon as Crist did and said something like: “Even though it violates the Debate Rules, I won’t object to Gov. Crist having a fan on himself. I wouldn’t want his tan to start melting.” That would have been a winning zinger. But, as it is...... not looking good for Gov. Scott.
Here’s how all the craziness went down..
and Scott’s reason for not coming out right away...
I just saw a clip on Fox News, it looks like he was using the same spray tan crap that John Kerry used in 2004. Maybe he is dressing as a drag queen for Halloween.
It is so odd to be against Crist today when in 2004, FREEPERS were all over themselves saying how incredible Crist is......I remember reading (I was a lurker for a year) saying Florida for Crist because he behaves like Christ. So odd. I live in Florida now and have to vote and it is the worst vote I ever have to decide on. Which idiot Republican to vote for???? They both literally suck.
Scott got played. It was a fan for crying out loud. Yes, it was a dirty trick. But it worked. Now Scott is going to look like he threw a temper tantrum over a fan. He took the bait, and now thats all anyone is talking about.
Sort of like Grimes in Kentucky. Does anyone have any clue how she did in the debate? Nope. All anyone is talking about is that she won’t admit who she voted for for President.
Every debate has a sound bite. You win or lose in the public eye based on that sound bite. And Scott’s “sound bite” is going to be that he wouldn’t go out there because the other guy got a fan. Nothing is worse in politics than to be laughed at.
They're called "The Stupid Party" for a reason.
