Voicemail from Crist to Meek surfaces
The Hill ^ | 10-30-2010 | Vicki Needham

Posted on 10/30/2010 7:32:55 PM PDT by tennmountainman

A voicemail from Gov. Charlie Crist to Democratic Senate candidate Kendrick Meek from earlier this week emerged on Saturday, suggesting Crist asked Meek to withdraw from the three-way race.

The existence of the voicemail comes a day after questions arose about whether former President Bill Clinton pressured Meek to give up his bid and back Crist.

Meek says Clinton discussed the topic but didn't press him to exit the race. Instead, Meek has said it was Crist who asked him to withdraw.

In a voicemail message left for Meek by Crist at 5 a.m. Monday, Crist asks Meek to meet sometime that day after a political event where the governor asked the Democratic congressman face-to-face to bow out.

TOPICS: News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: clinton; crist; meek; rubio
Crist wakes Meek up at 4:45 AM to talk. Then corners Meek at a political event offering Meek a Cross. Crist has gone over the edge. This is more than desperate. Crist seems mentally unstable. My prediction: Crist will not only finish 3rd, but he will be finished politically. The man is mentally unstable.

"The man is mentally unstable..."

Apparently that is not disqualifying.

There have been several exposed politicians lately but Crist is deinitely making a play for the most infamous of them all this political cycle. He’s had good competition but the 5 AM meet up calls may have won it for him.

I can’t see how this story helps anyone but Rubio. Neither Meeks nor Christ comes out squeaky clean, but Rubio is above it all.

I’d like to offer Meek some free campaign advice. If Crist asks to meet with him in the Everglades between now and Tuesday to discuss it further, decline the invitation.

No, it will not affect Rubio, but the run for second place is close. This could cause Crist to finish 3rd. Poetic justice.

Is he Tiger Woods in disguise? You can’t make this stuff up. Hate to be redundant, but he’s a craven coward. This is great, can’t wait till Tuesday.

Should be a historic day and night to remember. Then onward to 2012 to hunt some more RINO’s and RATS!

Didn’t Meek initially allege that Clinton asked him to give up, he subsequently declined and has now backed off implicating Clinton? Am I remembering correctly?

Dang it! I always read “Crist” as “Christ”, and thought this was something about the meek inheriting the Earth.

I may be mistaken but I think it was one of Clinton’s hacks that said Clinton asked Meek to get off the bus. Clinton then discounted his hacks story. I don’t think Meek ever admitted it.

Charlie Crist is Whacked!

I commend Meeks - although I’d never vote for him, he’s hanging in there. He even hammered Crist a couple of times at the debate.

I’m thinking Meeks may have cause for a restraining order.

but he will be finished politically. The man is mentally unstable.

That was the coventional thinking about McCain too, and look what happened in 2008.

I think you got it. When Crist loses he knows he is through politically unless he can bring in tons of dough for the left.

In which case they will embrace him as they do others ready to put on the C-4 vest and take that last walk into the crowded stands.

A Democrat Governor in the year off redistricting...JMHO...I have put p with many Florida elections in my 40 years here....used to be a poll watcher, now bed redden, but I still keep up with politics

I agree and thought about the same thing. It could help sink.

But that does not mean Crist won’t finish 3rd as well.

One reason I love being on the west coast. I’ll get to see Rubio win and Crist talk a fall early in the evening.

Charlie and Baraq have identical skin tones!
No wonder it was “OK” for him to ask Meek to drop out.
Charlie qualifies as a “person of color” too.
