Crist replaces Bense on FSU board

Gov. Charlie Crist, who earlier this month withdrew nearly 300 appointments made by former Gov. Jeb Bush, is not reappointing former House Speaker Allan Bense to the Florida State University Board of Trustees.

Bush last year named Bense, who like Crist is an FSU alum, to the board. In Bense's place, Crist instead named Andy Haggard, a big-time Seminole Booster and trial lawyer who is close friends with Sen. Jim King. Crist did however decide to keep Susie Busch-Transou, co-owner of Tri-Eagle Sales, the Tallahassee Anheuser-Busch distributor, on the board.
