The Lindsay Lohan connection to Fla senate race


UPDATE: "She was a guest of (Greene) and his wife," said a Greene spokesman.

After Buzz yesterday highlighted Democratic Senate candidate Jeff Greene palling around in St. Bart's with Lindsay Lohan last New Year's Eve, an Orlando TV reporter asked him about it. He seemed to imply he had no idea what the reporter was talking about: "I don't even know what photograph...People stand next to me all the time in photographs. What can I say? This is not what's important. Floridians are worried about jobs, getting results."

Because inquiring minds want to know, Buzz can now report that it appears Lohan was spending time on Greene's 145-foot yacht, Summerwind, at the time. See above and here and here and here.

If you're Kendrick Meek, it has to gall you. He could see his political career ended by a rich newcomer who was partying with celebutantes while Meek was started a grueling two-year campaign for U.S. Senate.
