Really, Charlie? Your Wife’s Tax Returns Off Limits?
Around the State
Here recently, the Republican Party of Florida has been going after Charlie Crist about his and his wife’s tax returns. Crist revealed some of his tax returns, but through his campaign spokesperson, Kevin Cate, has said that his wife’s returns are off limits.
The RPOF was accused of “going after” Crist’s wife.
Let’s take a look at why that is pure bs, and why Crist and his wife should just release the tax returns:
So why now, all of a sudden, are these tax returns so secret, and his wife off limits? If anyone thinks for one second Charlie Crist would have told John McCain that he could not have access to Carole’s tax returns, they are crazier than Crist is for denying the access now.
Charlie Crist uses his “celebrity” as the former governor to help promote his wife’s company, Goddessey. Take, for instance, the Texas trade show the company recently had.
If you scroll to the bottom of the company’s Facebook page, who do you see posing with people in costumes? None other than former Gov. Charlie Crist! Looks like they are working together to me. Is Crist hiding money with Goddessey?
Now, if former Gov. Crist wants to keep his wife’s tax returns a secret, and out of the public eye, why is he parading around at this trade show in Texas? Is that why he can’t debate Nan Rich? He’s too busy posing with the people of “Goddessey” to allow Democrats in Florida to hear where he stands on the issues and to be able to see the TWO candidates side-by-side on the stage, answering to the people of Florida?
Some of these journalists that Crist and the Crist campaign like to whine to should really ask these questions and call him out on what clearly makes no sense.
How about it, Mr. Crist? Would you have provided your wife’s info to the McCain campaign? Something tells me you would have!
What are you hiding now, Charlie?
