Dems Suspect Crist Pushing "Meek Will Drop Out" Lies

Interesting-- That's what TheRickWilson said on twitter.

It appears to be the case.

Shortly after the Wall Street Journal posted a story last week suggesting a deal was in the works to get Rep. Kendrick Meek to drop out of Florida’s three-way Senate race, a campaign aide to Gov. Charlie Crist forwarded a copy to one of the state's top political reporters at the Miami Herald.

“Hope you’re not getting scooped,” wrote Crist campaign spokesman Danny Kanner in the subject line of the e-mail forwarded to POLITICO.


"We had heard rumors from that effect from reporters and voters that the only way to stop Marco Rubio is to elect Charlie Crist. That story reflected those stories we had heard from reporters and voters every day," Kanner said, denying being the source of the Stephen Moore piece.

But Democrats behind Meek don't buy it.

They note that several of Crist's advisers — including Kanner — came from New York and likely had a relationship with the Journal and find it curious that an anonymously sourced story coincidentally landed in a Big Apple publication, far from Florida.

If it's so important to stop the dangerous Marco Rubio (handsome and dangerous?! I'm listening) and Charlie Crist just cares about the people of Florida and all that -- um, why doesn't Charlie Crist man up and drop out himself?
