Backing Charlie Crist has consequences for this Democrat



Sun Sentinel: The Deerfield Beach Democratic Club has banned lifelong Democrat Maria Sachs, a member of the state Legislature, from any of its future events because she endorsed Gov. Charlie Crist’s no-party affiliation ban for governor.

Bernie Parness, president of the club, wrote “with a heavy heart” to Sachs telling her she’s now unwelcome. The letter was signed by the club’s officers and board members.

“We have vowed to support the Democratic candidates without fail,” Parness wrote. “By supporting Charlie Crist you have spit in the face of every officer and board member."
