Charlie Crist takes a little jab at Jeb Bush



Gov. Charlie Crist was downplaying the potential political fallout from his connections to the indicted ex-party chairman Jim Greer when he made this analogy to the Greer mess: "Jeb's feet weren't really held to the fire when that guy at Corrections got popped."

Crist was referring, of course, to Jimmy Crosby, the former prison boss who's still serving time for taking kickbacks from contractors. For those who've been under a rock for the past 18 months, Jeb Bush is a strong supporter of Crist's U.S. Senate rival, Marco Rubio. And Crosby's attorney, Steve Andrews, was recently listed on the host committee for a Crist-for-Senate fund-raiser in Tallahassee.
