Politics1.com blog is reporting that perpetual bachelor Florida Governor Charlie Crist, who is reportedly vying for the second spot on the McCain – “?” 2008 bumper stickers, may release a “sexy” tape (not a sex tape!) of him cavorting with a (married) gal-pal. Not to start another GOP sex-scandal but instead as a stunt like the one Samantha pulled on the Sex and the City episode where she videotapes herself with her young boyfriend Smith and releases it to quell rumors that she is a lesbian. Because rumors abound that Crist may toe-tap in the same league as Sen. Larry Craig, R-Ida Ho. (That’s pronounced ride-a-ho by the way).
McCAIN VEEPSTAKES. Politics1 Exclusive. How interested is Florida Governor Charlie Crist in being John McCain’s VP runningmate? So much so that veteran GOP dirty trickster Roger Stone — who coordinated a few dirty stunts in support of Crist during the 2006 gubernatorial campaign — is quietly peddling a so-called “Charlie Crist sex tape.” That’s what Stone called it during a telephone conversation. And no, it is not a tape of Crist having sex with a guy. In fact, it isn’t even X-rated. The video was seemingly staged to kill the rumors that Crist is gay. Stone claims the tape — which he discussed recently with Politics1, but didn’t show to us (“I’m saving it for the national shows”) — “shows Charlie fooling around in a hotel elevator with his girlfriend … They’re making out.” Adds Stone: “It was captured on a security camera in the elevator” last month. And Stone just conveniently happens to have a copy of the hotel’s elevator surveillance tape, just when Crist’s name is in play for the VP spot. Hmm. As for Crist’s purported girlfriend — presuming it is the same one he took as his date to the White House Correspondents Dinner in DC a few weeks ago — she’s still married (and not to Crist). Disclaimer: Always be skeptical of anything from Stone.
