Out, Damn Politician! Out!

For the record, I'm not either.

'I'm Not Gay' Florida Attorney General Declares


January 18 -- The man fighting to preserve Florida's anti-gay adoption law is battling a widely circulating rumor that he is gay himself.

Attorney General Charlie Crist took the unusual step this week of calling a popular Tampa radio show to deny the rumor as he prepares to announce his candidacy for Governor.

It was clear from the onset that the call to WQYK-FM had been prearranged.  

"Are you a homo?'' asked host Dave McKay.


"No, man. No. I love women. I mean, they're wonderful,'' Crist replied.

Crist and McKay have been friends for some time and the two proceeded on air to discuss the Attorney General's female friends and dating.

"Yeah, well, fortunately I have, uh, I'm very blessed,'' Crist said.


``I've seen you with some great-looking women,'' McKay then said, ``I've heard some women even complain that you're a womanizer.''

The afternoon drive show on the country music station is among the highest rated in the area.

McKay said he called Crist to offer him the chance to "set the record straight," after television coverage of political forum last week in which an audience member asked the Attorney General if he is gay.

Crist replied that he is not.

Crist is 48, was married for seven months in 1979 and is considered handsome and impeccably dressed. The rumors that he was gay had circulated privately in Florida since the beginning of his political career. -- Fidel Ortega
