Gov. Charlie Crist is well past the weekly allowance stage, but he's still getting cash help from Mom and Dad. The latest e-mail from the Crist for U.S. Senate campaign comes from Crist's parents, Dr. Charles and Nancy Crist.
"We are confident that our son Charlie is the leader Floridians need in Washington," the e-mail states. "There are only two days left in this fundraising period, and we ask you to join us in supporting the Crist for Senate campaign by visiting www.CharlieCrist.com and making a contribution of $10, $25, $50 or even $100."
Dr. Crist touts his son's Cover Florida health care plan, saying that "as a family physician, I am confident that this type of reform will increase the number of Florida families covered by medical insurance, while reducing the taxpayer burden of costly emergency care the uninsured must often seek when a medical emergency arises."
The letter does not mention the fact that only 4,129 people have enrolled since Cover Florida began in March. An estimated 3,560 Floridians lose health insurance each week.
