Charlie Crist is the target of “Money and Fame,” the latest Republican Party of Florida digital ad featuring statements made by the former Republican in 1998 about then-President Bill Clinton.
The Miami Herald reports that the ad comes ahead of a scheduled appearance by Clinton as headliner of the May 6 DGA fundraiser in Miami Beach to benefit Crist.
Crist, who at the time was facing Sen. Bob Graham in the 1998 U.S. Senate race, had called Clinton to “go ahead and resign,” if Graham asks him to do so. Clinton was under intense fire over “lies” about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky.
“The only thing that stays the same about Charlie Crist is that he will say or do anything for money and fame,” said RPOF Executive Director Juston Johnson in a statement to the Miami Herald.
“Was Charlie Crist lying then, when he called Bill Clinton a liar and asked him to resign from office, or is he lying now, when he calls him a friend?”
“Money and Fame” will be promoted on both Facebook and Twitter.
