From the Miami Herald: Crist addressed questions about his use of the state plane on Wednesday to fly from Tallahassee to four different cities to promote legislation; the final stop in Miami was followed by a campaign fundraiser. Crist had previously said that he would not use a taxpayer-funded flight to get to a city where he had both state and political business.
Now he’s got a different policy: “We were on state business all day and when I landed in Miami I did the state business. Then after 5 o’clock I’m off the clock, and I’m a free man again.”
That’s different than what Crist said in October, when he was questioned why he took off as many as ten weeks last year:
“I’m like a doctor: I’m always on call,” says Crist, the son of a physician. “As long as I have a cell phone on me, which I’m talking to you right now on, I’m working. I’m never not governor.”
