Crist's law firm gives $50k to Obama Super PAC



Morgan & Morgan, the giant personal injury law firm where Charlie Crist now works, gave $50,000 to a pro-Obama Super PAC. The contribution to Priorities USA Action was spotted by the Center for Public Integrity (story here).

It's not terribly surprising given John Morgan is a big time Democratic donor and has hosted fundraisers for the president's re-election effort. But it adds a layer to Crist's political conversion, from Republican governor to independent candidate for U.S. Senate to talked about Democratic candidate for governor.

The $50k is helping pay for ads like this one, that Prioritites USA Action is running in Florida.
