Crist’s Gay Rumors May Dash McCain Dreams

Will Charlie Crist be John McCain’s running mate this November? That’s what some people are saying. And the Floridian governor recently came out for the Republican candidate. Too bad he’s also got loads of baggage – years of queer rumor. Those rumors will definitely grow come a nomination. Bob Norman writes:

If McCain chooses Crist, it would be interesting to see how the voracious national press (as opposed to cautious Florida newspapers) would handle the issue. Would the New York Times put a small team of reporters on the story in an effort to dig up the truth?

I think so. Just last week, a writer with a major national magazine called me on the topic. He said he was doing a general piece about the recent spate of Republican outings and scandals, but the V.P. talk surely has given a bit of urgency to the project.

Well, at least the McCain camp’s getting a heads up, so to speak…
