Charlie Crist Endorses Gay Marriage

That's one thing in his favor


Ex-Florida Gov. Charlie Crist was once known for being a staunch Republican, but these days he's better known for jumping between party lines.

Earlier this week, the Republican-turned-Independent-turned-Democrat posted a Facebook update in support of Delaware's marriage equality legislation.

"Some great news: On Tuesday, Delaware became the 11th state to allow marriage equality. And just a few days ago, Rhode Island adopted a similar measure, which followed victories last fall in Maine, Maryland and Washington. I most certainly support marriage equality in Florida and look forward to the day it happens here," he wrote.

Despite his support for the issue, Crist's comments are being met with suspicion rather than applause. In the span of his extensive political career, Crist spread himself across the full gamut of political parties, confusing the public's understanding of his true policy alignments.
