527: Tom Gallagher, Monopoly Man



It's the final week, Buzz watchers, and all bets (and gloves) are off. Take, for example, the scorching new anti-Tom Gallagher website funded by a Charlie Crist-backing 527, Floridians for Truth and Integrity, which benefits from money raised from Greg Eagle and others.

It's called and it's a doozy. Among its highlights: A new commercial (Buzz is checking to see if its scheduled to air anywhere) that uses footage from a Cabinet meeting where Gallagher, in support of the state employee United Way campaign, dressed up as the iconic Monopoly Man.

Another highlight is a link to: The Wallpaper. It references a pair of newspaper stories, two decades apart, about Gallagher's redecorating of state offices.

Oh, and there's also a list claiming to detail Gallagher's pro-tax stance.
