George Hamilton Tanning Classic winner and closet case, Florida Governor Charlie Crist (R), has been hit by a lawsuit claiming that while Florida’s attorney general, he ignored a ponzi scheme masterminded by boy-band guru Lou Pearlman (N’Sync, Backstreet Boys), which may have defauded investors of as much as $500 million.
Crist is alleged to have accepted campaign contributions and jet rides from Pearlman while he was supposed to be investigating the case. There’s no mention of whether any of those jets happened to contain actual boy-bands. Pearlman is believed to have fled the country for Germany. Suddenly, I’m not so anxious for Crist to come out.
