"How do you spell sour grapes?" she said, referring to criticism from would-be candidates Mike Fasano, Nancy Argenziano and others who missed the filing deadline. One person who did not is Hernando County Sheriff Richard Nugent because, as it turned out, Brown-Waite tipped him off to her decision. "None of them had the courage to run against me," Brown-Waite said. "I think it's called the Charlie Crist wing." With that, the Brooksville Republican got in a packed members-only elevator and was gone. * Alex Leary the-buzz-florida-politics Alex Leary,Ginny Brown-Waite Ginny Brown-Waite blames 'sour grapes' for criticism templatedata/tampabaytimes/BlogArticle/data/the-buzz-florida-politics/2010/05/06/76751-ginny-brown-waite-blames-sour-grapes-criticism BlogArticle Briefly caught Congresswoman Ginny Brown-Waite this afternoon and asked about the controversy surrounding her last-minute decision not to seek re-election.Alex Leary,Ginny Brown-WaiteAlex Leary,Ginny Brown-WaiteAlex Leary 380991 2038-01-18 05:00:00.0 UTC 2038-01-18T00:00:00.000-05:00 2012-10-25 12:38:48.0 UTC 2012-10-25T08:38:48.000-04:00 alex-leary published Alex Leary <p>Alex Leary is the Washington bureau chief for the <i>Tampa Bay Times</i>.
