Quo warranto, governor?



Bsecti_crista_2279584_2Howard Troxler on Marco Rubio's lawsuit challenging Gov. Charlie Crist's gambling compact with the Seminole Tribe:

I am just a dumb layperson, but I like the House's argument better.

When the House filed this case, one of the governor's top guys said it was "easier to throw rocks than be a leader."

But this is a legitimate question. Crist may be a handsome, popular and cheerful fellow, and he might even win this argument.

Yet in this case, he is still the Sheriff of Nottingham. We common folk are entitled to ask him to prove his power in court.

And so, once more - quo warranto, governor?
