The Max Linn factor



Millionaire Reform Party gubernatorial candidate Max Linn complains the Florida media is ignoring his candidacy. But he's found a new tactic for getting attention: publicly insisting, with no apparent evidence, that Charlie Crist is gay.  On Orlando radio station WFLA-AM 540 last week, Linn told host Bud Hedinger he would "put my hand on a stack of Bibles" to say Crist is gay. "His sexual preference is not to women," Linn said. Hedinger sounded speechless. "A bombshell," he said over the air.

"I'm sorry he's so misinformed," Crist said. "It sounds like he's in desperate need of more attention. That's just really sad." Steve Bousquet's full column is here.
