Charlie Crist regrets signing anti-gay marriage petition
Former Florida governor Charlie Crist, who recently joined the Democratic party after holding office as a Republican, says he regrets signing a peition in 2006 calling for a gay marriage ban in the state constitution. Crist is currently weiging another run for governor.
"Would I do it today? No," Crist told reporters, according to the Tampa Bay Times. "I think the best way to judge where my heart is is to look at the deeds that I have done, whether as attorney general, governor -restoration of rights, civil rights cases, things of that nature that I think show a compassionate heart and hopefully someone who cares and knows who the boss is - and the boss is the people of Florida."
