What does the average Joe think of the Mark Foley scandal?

A Buzz correspondent is watching the UF-LSU game (currently tied at 7) at Azteca, a Mexican restaurant in Davie, and a Charlie Crist commercial comes on. A man at the bar, nursing a Coronoa Light, turns to his friend and says:

"That's going to be our new governor right there. But he's going to have an uphill battle. He's been connected to Mark Foley. His problems are just beginning. I'm a Democrat, so I'm Davis all the way. But this guy is going to have an uphill battle."
