Fl Dem chair calls Florida's new senator 'Charlie Crist's Crony'

Florida Democratic Party Chairman Karen Thurman wasted little time before ripping into Gov. Charlie Crist's Senate appointment:

Today, Charlie Crist decided to play political games with the public's trust by appointing George LeMieux to the U.S. Senate. This glaring example of political cronyism is the last thing Florida needed while we face these tough economic times and the Congress is tackling critical issues such as health insurance reform and global warming. In appointing LeMieux, someone who has made millions over the past several years selling access to Crist to the highest bidders among Tallahassee's special interests, Charlie Crist once again put his own political ambition above doing what is right for Florida.

This selection marks the beginning of the end for Crist. The Governor had an chance to shine but instead, he squandered this very important opportunity.

This choice will only anger the conservative base even more than it is now and give much needed ammunition to the Democrats at a time when the Republican brand needs a much-needed boost.

Let's go Marco!
