See you in court, Gov. Crist

The New York Post reports today that alleged victims of a multi-million dollar swindle by Lou Pearlman are suing Gov. Charlie Crist. The victims' lawyer, James Lowy, is accusing Crist of taking illegal campaign contributions from Pearlman even as he was supposed to be investigating him as attorney general.

A copy of the lawsuit was not immediately available.

I suspect that the contributions were more improper than illegal. What is illegal is the fact that Charlie Crist refused to produce a single document related to his knowledge of, or involvment in, the Lou Pearlman model scam investigation under the Florida in the Sunshine public records law.

My book "Under Investigation" shows how an obvious scam was overlooked and thereby allowed Pearlman to defraud investors and banks out of close to one half a billion dollars.

A formal request to have the Inspector General's office investigate the former AG has been met with silence. Who runs that department anyway? Oh right, the new governor.
