Rubio calls Crist's pork comment 'hypocrisy'

Gov. Charlie Crist's labelling of Senate opponent Marco Rubio's earmark spending as "pork" looks like revisionist history to the Rubio campaign. It just sent out a letter from Crist to Rubio where the governor lauded Rubio's biggest appropriation: an $80 million University of Miami genome project.

In a press releast the campaign says "Crist’s hypocrisy was on full display today when he attacked Marco Rubio for so-called “pork” spending on projects that Crist himself supported and approved.  In addition, Crist’s claim to have vetoed the so-called “pork” spending is laughable considering the fact that he supported close to 98 percent of it.  In fact, Crist even sent Rubio a letter saying how “thankful” he was to be able to support one of the projects he now labels as “pork.” "
