Crist, Rubio, Meek, West make 'crooked candidates' list



Geez, Florida politicians are getting a bad rap. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington today released a list of its "crooked candidates" that is dominated by Floridians: Charlie Crist, Marco Rubio, Kendrick Meek and Allen West.

The report is here. UPDATE: This afternoon, CREW posted a message on its website saying it was not endorsing the other major Florida Senate candidate, Jeff Greene. "For the record, CREW seriously questions Jeff Greene's character, and considering their legal history, we're pretty sure former child star and Oscar winning director Ron Howard won't be endorsing Greene either."
