WMNF Drive-Time News Thursday | Listen to this entire show:
The measure to censure Governor Crist originally came back in February, shortly after Governor Crist had appeared in a campaign-like appearance with President Obama in Lee County.
Steve Ledewitz is the Palm Beach Republican who originally filed the motion against The Governor, way back in February. It was originally tabled, with a promise to bring the vote back this month.
The call to censure Governor Crist went down in a tie last night, 65-65. Sid Dinerstein is the Chairman of the Palm Beach County Republican Party. After last nightâ€™s tied censure vote, he said the Republican Party is willing to get rid of Charlie Crist. But he said that his party is not divided, despite the tie vote. Rather, he says they are united in their criticism of Crist.
The censure did not happen, because of a tie 65-65 tie. However, the Miami Herald reports that one man who missed the roll call vote said he supported the censure. But Sid Dinerstein says that the man only mentioned he missed the vote after the tie result came.
