Crist: Not questioned in Mendelsohn probe

If you are an elected official in Tallahassee, you are getting this question: Have you talked to the feds?

It's part of the effort to determine the scope of a Justice Department probe into Alan Mendelsohn, a Broward fund-raiser accused of transferring $87,000 to an unidentified former state lawmaker. The Herald/Times broke the news Wednesday about a number of lawmakers getting questions about the former power broker, including Senate President Jeff Atwater.

But at this point the inquiry doesn't reach as high as the governor's office. After the clemency board hearing Thursday, Gov. Charlie Crist said he has not spoken to federal agents.
