Charlie Crist portrait goes for $7,700 on eBay

A portrait of Charlie Crist sold for $7,700 on eBay. The Republican Party of Florida sponsored the auction and more than made back its money. Party donors paid $7,500 for two portraits: Crist and Jim Greer, the former chairman.


Still unknown: the buyer (h***h) who made six bids in the final four days to take the prize. But the money counts as a donation to the party, which is public record, so hopefully we'll know the lucky winner soon.

UPDATE: The party says it won't name the winner. "It's not our place," a spokeswoman said. Unless the top bidder comes forward, we'll have to wait until the campaign finance reports in June.
