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.” "
