Congressman Kendrick Meek, Florida's leading Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, had a swift, strong response to yesterday's announcement by Governor Charlie Crist that he'd continue his own Senate bid as a "No Party Affiliation" candidate.

"That means on election day, Floridians will have a choice between a strong, progressive Democrat who fights hard for everyday Floridians and two registered Republicans who together were the architects of Florida's failed economy, who both are embroiled in a tax evasion scandal, and who both favor more tax breaks for corporate special interests and the wealthy as their only economic proposal"

It's a sign of the times that an ethically challenged, if not completely corrupted politician like former House Speaker Marco Rubio was the blunt instrument the right wing of the Florida GOP used to bludgeon Crist out from under their taut little tent. No room in there these days even for shades of conservatism - much less for actual diversity and debate.

Rubio is a guy under investigation by the Feds - both the FBI and the IRS - for possible criminal activity related to his misuse of Republican Party credit cards. And the bills he ran up were paid for by donations from party faithful, unbeknownst to them of course.

Top Crist allies, including disgraced former GOP chairman Jim Greer, are also subjects of the same ever-widening investigation into rampant Republican Party corruption.
