"Would I do it today? No. 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." - New Democrat Charlie Crist
, on his 2006 signing of a petition to place a ban on same-sex marriage in the Florida state constitution. The ban was approved by voters in 2008 with 2% more than the 60% majority requirement. It would surely fail today.
