Gay Charlie Crist Hurts His Governor Campaign By Remaining In Closet / Opens Himself Up For Future Extortion,.

Fl.Rep.Gubernatorial Can.Charlie Crist's Gay Lovers Surface & TALK !!

Rep.Candidate Crist's lovers - Jason Wetherington - Bruce Carlton
Jordan have talked because Crist cheated on his regular guy with the other one and got caught

(LInks to all the news stories you could want on this subject below)

If Charlie Crist's being a closeted gay man making him susceptible
to being bribed is not enough ? Then how about he was hand picked by JEB Bush to continue the Bush regime's ways in Florida and that he currently is the Florida Attorney General and it would have been his duty to press charges against the youth hall guards you saw beat a 13 year old boy to death on video and there have been No criminal charges yet ? !

We need to get Republican Governors out of Florida or they will rig
the 2008 Presidential election with their hand picked Secretary of State
that oversees the elections like Secretary of State Katherine Harris did
in 2000 !

Jason Wetherington

Bruce Carlton Jordan

Alvaro Diaz-Rubio
     Bruce Carlton Jordan's mug shot.
A young rising star in the Republican Party has boasted to witnesses of
his sexual relationship with Charlie Crist, the frontrunner in the
Florida governor's race who has repeatedly denied that he is gay.
The GOP staffer," 21-year-old " Jason Wetherington, told friends at
separate social functions in August that he had sex with Crist,
according to two credible and independent sources who heard
Wetherington make the claim first-hand.
     Wetherington, who recently worked as a field director for U.S.
Senate candidate Katherine Harris and currently works for state
representative Ellyn Bodganoff's reelection campaign.
     Also named a man whom he said is Crist's long-term partner, a
convicted thief named Bruce Carlton Jordan who also recently worked for
Katherin Harris in her long-shot Senate bid.
    Jordan made headlines recently when the Miami Herald learned that
the felon was working as Harris's travel aide.
      The newspaper noted that Jordan, 42, was reported to be close
friends with Charlie Crist, whom he convinced to attend an annual
Florida Funeral Directors Association meeting in 2003.
     Jordan was charged in 2003 with stealing thousands of dollars from
two organizations for whom he worked, including the Tallahassee-based
Florida Funeral Directors Association, where he served as executive
director.
      He completed a 60-day jail sentence in February and will be on
probation until the year 2011, according to state records. When the
Herald questioned Crist about Jordan this past August, the frontrunner
in the governor's race told the newspaper that he doesn't remember the
man. "I don't know who Bruce Jordan is," he said at the time. "It
doesn't mean I haven't met him. I don't know who you are speaking
about."
    I asked Crist during a phone interview on Monday morning if he had
ever had sex with Jordan.
   "No," he said. "I don't recall the name." That Crist doesn't remember
Jordan seemed incredible to me. Not only did the attorney general make a special appearance at the funeral directors' conference, but former
presidents of the association say Jordan was known to be pals with
Crist. Attempts to reach Jordan weren't successful, but his father told
me that Crist and his son are friends. "He talks about [Crist], but I
don't think he's seen Charlie in a while," said Albert Jordan, who lives
in Inverness, where he and his wife raised their son.
    When asked if his son and Crist had a sexual relationship, the
father simply said, "Not as far as I know."
     I recounted some of those facts with Crist. "I'm not saying I
haven't met him, I probably have," he said. "I just can't picture him,
that's all."
    I also asked him about Wetherington's claim to sources that he'd had
sex with Crist. "That's ridiculous," he said.
"Completely false." Then I asked him if he'd ever in his life had sex
with a man. "Never," he said.

While there is no proof that what Wetherington has said is true,
it's clear that he said it. I first learned about his claims after
receiving an anonymous e-mail on October 6. The e-mail was linked to a
2003 story of mine reporting that now-disgraced congressman Mark Foley
was gay. "Why don't you do the same story for another hugely visible FL
politician running for office? Call if you want a starting point."
Immediately I knew the e-mailer was referring to Crist. For years, it
has been rumored that Crist, the favorite to move into the governor's
mansion after the November 7 election, is gay. I was interested in
pursuing the lead mainly because I've come to believe that any closeted
politician in the Republican Party — which openly woos homophobes into
its ranks while opposing gay rights — is fair game for the media.
Crist, for his part, has been moderate on those issues and supports
civil unions. "I'm a live and let live kind of guy," he told me. But the
Palm Beach Post reported on Friday that Crist can be heard in recently
recorded phone calls targeting voters saying, "I support a
constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriages, and I oppose
adoption by gay couples."
     I asked him about that, and he said he's always held those
positions. I asked him if he thought it was fair for reporters to ask
him about his own sexuality. "Of course it's fair," he said. "It's just
happens to be wrong."
    Many people aren't convinced that Crist is telling the truth. I am
one of them, especially after reporting this column. The source behind
the e-mail, who asked that      I not reveal his name for fear of
retribution, is a gay man, a registered Independent voter and former
Republican who isn't involved in Democratic Party politics. He was
motivated to tell his story, he says, by his outrage at the Foley
scandal. He recounted a dinner party of four people at a friend's posh
waterfront home in Las Olas Isles. He didn't remember the exact date but
it took place in early August. He was there with his friend, his
friend's partner, and Wetherington.
    His friend had struck up a sexual relationship with Wetherington
after meeting him in an AOL chat room. Wetherington spoke at the party
about working for Katherine Harris's campaign.       To me, this was
significant since Harris is a stalwart of the Religious Right and openly
denounces homosexuality. Wetherington even took a call from Harris after they sat down for cocktails before dinner. "He was like Harris's gay
valet," the source said.
       As they sipped their drinks, Jason started talking about his
relationship with Crist, which he said had been sexual in nature.
"Charlie Crist? Are you kidding?" the source remembers asking. They
asked Jason about the size of Crist's anatomy. Jason "wouldn't go
there," said the source. "He said that he remains friendly with Crist
and that he was expecting an appointment when Crist becomes governor."

NATIONAL NEWS
Opponent outs GOP candidate for Fla. governor (Gay)
Crist has denied rumors, opposes gay marriage
By _PHIL LAPADULA_ (mailto:plapadula@expressgaynews.com)
Friday, October 20, 2006
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — In 1985, Max Linn participated in a three-month program called Leadership St. Petersburg that focuses on grooming future leaders in business and politics. One of his classmates in the program was Charlie Crist, who is now Florida’s attorney general and the Republican nominee for governor.

Linn, who is running against Crist on the Reform Party ticket, said there
were only about 20 people in that 1985 class.

“So you got to know everybody,” he said.

According to Linn, during the course of conversations with Crist he learned that the future attorney general is gay. The two talked about “what would happen if [Crist’s sexual orientation] comes out” during a political campaign, Linn said.

Linn kept quiet about Crist’s supposed gay secret for more than 20 years
until he launched his third-party bid for governor. Then, on Oct. 11, National Coming Out Day, Linn outed Crist on WFTL, a South Florida radio show.

“Charlie, come out, come out from wherever you are,” Linn said on the radio show.

Crist has repeatedly denied rumors that he is gay. When Miami radio host Jim DeFede asked Crist if he is gay in July, Crist responded, “The point is, I’m not. There’s the answer. How do you like it? Not that there’s anything wrong with that, as they say on Seinfeld. But I just happen not to be.”

In January 2005, Crist denied rumors that he is gay during an interview on
WQYK, a country music radio station based in Tampa. During the interview, Dave McKay, co-host of WQYK’s “Randy and Dave Show,” asked Crist, “Are you a homo?”

Crist responded, “No man. No, I love women. I mean, they’re wonderful.”

Crist, 49, was married for seven months in 1979, but otherwise has lived a single life.

Repeated calls to Crist’s campaign headquarters late last week and early
this week were not returned.

In an interview this week, Linn stood by the statements he made about Crist on the radio show. He said he was a registered Republican for 20 years before recently switching to become an independent. Linn said he contributed money and did volunteer fund-raising for two of Crist’s past campaigns, including his unsuccessful bid for the U.S. Senate in 1998.

A matter of ‘honesty’

Linn said he has no problem with gay candidates running for office, but he thinks they should be open about their sexual orientation. The recent Mark Foley affair and the scandal involving former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevy have highlighted the dangers of running in the closet, he said.

“When you lie about it, that opens you up to extortion and bribery,” Linn said. “That’s what happened with McGreevey.” He referred to McGreevey’s book, in which the former New Jersey governor detailed how his closeted life made him vulnerable to an extortion attempt.

Linn said it’s also “a matter of integrity and honesty” for a candidate to
disclose their sexual orientation to voters.

Linn claimed that Crist’s sexual orientation is an open secret in
Tallahassee, much like Foley’s was.

“In my opinion, it’s widely known throughout the Republican Party that
Crist is gay,” Linn said.

Josh Earnest, communications director for Crist’s Democratic opponent, Rep. Jim Davis, said the Democrat has no plans to make Crist’s sexual orientation an issue.

“We believe the most important issues relate to Crist’s public record and
his failure to fight for lower property taxes, lower property insurance rates and better schools,” Earnest said.

He also compared Crist’s record on gay rights against Davis’, noting that
Crist supports a state constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage while Davis opposes such an amendment.

In the post-Foley political landscape, more people are arguing that exposing the truth about closeted gay politicians is in the best interests of the public. For example, in an Oct. 13 opinion piece published in the Los Angeles Times, gay columnist Michelangelo Signorile blamed the media for not outing Foley.

“The media enabled a man overwhelmed by the destructiveness of the closet to ultimately implode in the halls of Congress,” Signorile wrote in the column.

Will the Foley fallout cause more voters to have doubts about Republican
candidates who are even rumored to be gay, regardless of whether or not they are?

Andy Eddy, communications director for the Broward Log Cabin Republicans, doesn’t think so. First of all, Eddy questioned just how “closeted” Foley was, noting that the former congressman was known to attend gay events with his boyfriend.

“When [Foley] accepted the Gold Medallion award from the People With AIDS Coalition of Broward, he was there with his boyfriend and made it clear to everyone that it was his boyfriend,” Eddy recalled. Furthermore, Eddy noted that Foley was identified as gay by several publications including New Times, the Advocate and the Washington Blade during his aborted Senate campaign in late 2003 and early 2004.

Eddy said he thinks the Foley scandal will be “temporarily counterproductive for gay Republicans.” But he thinks voters will eventually realize that Foley is inappropriate behavior with teenage pages “had nothing to do with his sexual orientation.”

Eddy questioned Linn’s credibility and motives in outing Crist in the
governor’s race.

“He seems to be doing it for political gain,” Eddy said. “If someone is
outed because they’re attacking the community, that’s a different story. But to out a person for any kind of personal or political gain, I think is wrong.”

Eddy thinks Crist may be telling the truth when he says he’s not gay.

“He could be bisexual,” Eddy said.

In a written statement, Patrick Sammon, executive vice president of the
national Log Cabin Republicans, said the group is opposed to outing.

Despite persistent rumors about his sexual orientation that date back to his first campaign for elected office, Crist easily defeated Tom Gallagher for the Republican nomination in September and has since opened up a big lead over his Democratic opponent, Rep. Davis.

Recent polls have shown Crist with a substantial lead. He led Davis 54 to 38 percent in a Rasmussen poll of 500 likely voters that was released Oct. 2. A Survey USA poll released Oct. 12 has Crist ahead of Davis 54 to 41 percent.

Most of the polls have not included Linn. Poll figures were not available
since Linn outed Crist.

Foley scandal changes political dynamics

A Florida political science expert thinks that the Foley scandal has changed the political climate for closeted gay Republicans or, in Crist’s case, for a candidate whom many people believe to be closeted.

“The Foley scandal is likely to cause a demand for purity from the ‘
theo-cons’[religious conservatives] ,” said Tony Smith, an assistant professor of political science with the University of Miami. “They are going to say, ‘You can’t be one of our standard bearers and be gay,’”

But the ultimate effect that the “outing” of Crist has on the governor’s
race will depend on whether or not the mainstream media picks up the story, Smith said. As of press time, no major newspapers or TV stations had reported on Linn’s latest assertions about Crist’s sexual orientation.

“If the mainstream media doesn’t pick it up, voters will say that it’s just
nastiness because the poor man can’t find a wife,” Smith said. “If it doesn’t get brought to the forefront of people’s conversations, then it’s still just an unproven rumor. But if the social conservative groups believe it, he’s dead in the water.”

Michael Albetta, president of the Florida GLBT Democratic Caucus, said he doesn’t think Crist’s sexual orientation is a legitimate issue in the campaign.

“A person should be judged on their job performance and not their personal life,” Albetta said.

Albetta said gay voters should compare Crist’s record on gay rights to Davis’. He contended that Crist is “two-faced” on gay rights, giving different answers on questions about his positions depending on who’s interviewing him.

Crist record on gay issues a mixed bag

In fact, Crist’s record on gay rights issues appears to be a mixed bag. He
opposes gay marriage and confirmed in an interview with the Florida Baptist Witness newspaper that he had signed a petition to place an anti-gay marriage amendment on the 2008 election ballot.

But during an interview with radio talk-show host Jim DeFede in July, Crist said civil unions for gay couples were “fine” with him. In the same
interview, Crist said he was undecided about whether or not to repeal the state’s ban on gays adopting children.

“Haven’t taken a position yet,” Crist told DeFede.

But in his Oct. 12 interview with the Florida Baptist Witness, Crist was
asked, “Do you support repealing the ban on homosexual adoption?”

Crist answered, “No.”

When the Baptist Witness asked Crist if he supported civil rights
protections on the basis of sexual orientation, Crist responded, “I support civil rights protections on the basis of people. I believe that we need to fight discrimination that is based on race, sex, creed, national origin…” But he never mentioned sexual orientation.

In a follow-up question, the Baptist Witness interviewer asked Crist, “To be more precise about it, the homosexual lobby is pressing for civil rights on basis of sexual preference or sexual orientation, they would say. Do you support that agenda?”

Crist answered, “No, it’s not an agenda item that I support. But I support
civil rights to fight discrimination.”

Crist has come out in favor of anti-bullying legislation that includes
specific protections for gay students. He is also a strong supporter of
hate-crimes laws.

John Marble, spokesperson for the National Stonewall Democrats, said it’s important to point out that Crist has not acknowledged being gay.

But, he added, “It’s always a disservice to voters for candidates to run in
the closet. It underscores a certain level of dishonesty that they think is
OK with their constituents. I think the gay question is a fair question for
reporters to ask a candidate. I don’t think reporters should be afraid to ask the question.”
