3 of 4 major Fl Senate candidates make 'crooked list'

Florida voters should be swelling with pride. The state has the dubious distinction of having three of its four major Senate candidates -- ex-Republican Charlie Crist, Republican Marco Rubio and Democrat Kendrick Meek -- make a national list of the most "crooked candidates."

The list was compiled by the Center for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a watchdog group that blew the whistle on former Republican Rep. Mark Foley.

Also on the list: Republican upstart candidate Allen West, who is trying to take out Democratic Rep. Ron Klein. Florida really outdid itself, providing more than one-third of the names for a list of 11 people.
