Charlie Crist's World

Even as a Tallahassee grand jury was indicting two Northwest Florida leaders on public corruption charges, governor Charlie Crist was busy sweeping Brice Harris under the rug to cover up the "Project Odyssey" scandal:
Gov. Charlie Crist will not file an ethics complaint against a former top-level Andrews Institute employee, because he has resigned his job. * * * Sterling Ivey, a spokesman for the governor's office, said that "in light of his (Harris') recent resignation from the Andrews Institute we will not be making a referral to the Ethics Commission."
We get it. In Gov. Crist's world, thieves get to keep the booty so long as they retire right after the big score -- if they're caught.

This must be why the gods invented grand juries.
