RPOF attacks 'two faces' of Charlie Crist



"Charlie Crist demonstrates he has two faces. One is the face of what he says, and the other is his record," reads a blistering Republican Party of Florida e-mail sent out Tuesday afternoon.

The attack accuses Crist of flip-flopping on the voter purge issue. It is a response to Crist's Washington Post op ed, published Saturday, in which Crist blasts Gov. Rick Scott's efforts to verify legitimate voters on Florida's voter rolls as "mean-spirited" and "all-to-partisan."

Crist is rumored to be positioning himself to run as a Democrat against Scott, which may be why RPOF chairman Lenny Curry continued his attack.

"Last weekend, Charlie Crist added his voice to a chorus of people who exploit a very necessary effort to stop illegal, non-citizen voting," said Curry. "As usual, his voice was used to keep himself in the limelight and to reflect the latest evolution of a politician who stands for nothing."

Here's the picture by RPOF.
