Crist denies tryst

Apparently there's something in the Floridian GOP water. Is any Florida Republican not involved in some sort of scandal or linked to someone notorious?

21-year-old GOP staffer Jason Wetherington, a rising young star in the Republican Party, has boasted of a sexual relationship with Charlie Crist, the frontrunner in the Florida governor's race who has repeatedly denied that that he is gay. Wetherinton told friends at separate social functions in August that he had sex with Crist, according to two credible and independent sources who heard Wetherington make the claim first-hand.

Wetherington, who recently worked as a field director for U.S. Senate candidate Katherine Harris and currently works for state representative Ellyn Bodganoff's reelection campaign, also named a man whom he said is Crist's long-term partner, a convicted thief named Bruce Carlton Jordan who also recently worked for Harris in her long-shot Senate bid. Jordan made headlines recently when the Miami Herald learned that the felon was working as Harris's travel aide. The Herald also noted that Jordan(42) was reported to be close friends with Charlie Crist.

Well hi there. Blogger has been a bitch today and tonight. Screwed up my whole online night. Oh well at least I don't have to worry about Death Squads roaming the 'hood. Yet.

Now about this here young feller, now I'm not gay or anything but ya put some lipstick and a wig on him and a pair of falsies and who could blame a Strong Family Values Christian Moral Man for straying. Now I'm not gay or anything but so long as cute young guys keep hanging around Republicans nature is gonna take it's course. And they might stay that way. Maybe that's what the Glorious Leader meant by Staying the Course.Anyway, as I was saying, I'm not gay or anything, but it seems I've seen this Hott errr ummm I mean young man before. Maybe in a Gentleman's Quarterly ad. I just get it to stay on top, of fashion. I mean it's not like I'm gay or anything.

Boy, sure is a lonely blogging night, what with Blogger being down and all. I think I'll see if Turner Movie Classics has anything good on. For some reason I'm in the mood for some Gladiator movies tonight.

John, are you reporting the story the way you want to hear it? The Times reporter used two "anonymous sources". Second, Wetherington is dening the allegations.

From Towleroad.com

New Times writer Bob Norman bases his claims that Crist had an affair with 21-year-old Jason Wetherington, the field director for Harris, on two different anonymous sources who claim that Wetherington bragged to them at dinner parties that he and Crist had sex at a Tampa area hotel while he was working on the Harris campaign. One source also said that Wetherington named Bruce Jordan Carlton, a convicted felon who also worked for Katherine Harris, as Crist's long-term partner.

Of course anonymous sources aren't much good in substantiating anything unless they'll come forward, and the subjects of the rumors are in denial mode. When approached by Norman, Wetherington claimed that the extent of his contact with Crist was "shaking his hand" and denied claims by Norman's sources that he had bragged of an appointment should Crist win election. Said Wetherington: "I sent him a resume. I want to work for him, but I never said that I had a job with the administration."

Human - Blogger's been a real bitch this evening as well. And, I might add, you're scaring me!!!

Sumo - Would ye care to rephrase that, lassie?

Turkette - A reputable Florida newspaper. I changed nothing. You might want to change your fake IP though; I've been onto this one for quite awhile now. And I GET the S.Hadley joke. . .

AZ - You're right. And just look at how quickly the local kool-aid head jumped to his defense here.

Turkette - I've told you before, if you want to dispute something with me that's fine. But BS anon comments will be deleted. Use your real name and they'll stay.

Oh, the source:
