I am pretty positive this is an accident (x2), but paging through Bloomberg’s official White House Correspondents’ Dinner afterparty pictures, I found this and this.
In both photos, Crist has his arm around an attractive brunette woman, and the captions read as follows (emphases mine):
Charlie Crist, governor of Florida, right, and his wife attend an afterparty hosted by Bloomberg LP following the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, April 26, 2008.
Charlie Crist, governor of Florida, and his wife arrive for an afterparty hosted by Bloomberg LP following the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, April 26, 2008.
I did a little digging around, and I don’t think Crist is married. In fact, contrary to what the Florida press and Charlie’s dad have reported, I thought there was a lot of speculation as to whether Governor Crist ever wanted to marry a woman…again. (He was married once before for about a year back in 1979).
However, if there is any truth to the speculation that he’s a possible Republican VP candidate, then someone urging him to be seen with an attractive “wife” at this particular juncture wouldn’t be entirely far-fetched.
