Five minutes after Governor Scott sent a joint statement with former Governors Jeb Bush and Bob Martinez urging the Senate to pass SB 1400, Charlie Crist put out a statement forgetting his own opposition of similar legislation. Charlie vs. Charlie is at it again…

Charlie Crist Said Lawmakers “Did The Right Thing” When They Rejected In-State Tuition For DREAMERS. “Crist said state lawmakers “did the ‘right thing’ earlier this year when they rejected a bill allowing children of illegal immigrants to pay the same tuition rates as Florida residents … An August 2006 article in the Tampa Bay Times included a one-word ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer from candidates for governor to several questions, including this one: ‘Should we allow the children of illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition at our universities?’ The answer for Crist: No.” (Amy Sherman, “Charlie Crist Opposed In-State Tuition For Dreamers In 2006, Republican Party Of Florida Says,” Politifact, 4/11/14)

“Charlie Crist led the charge against DREAMERS when he was governor. Now, he’s attacking Governor Scott’s strong leadership to keep tuition low for all Florida students. That’s not just hypocritical, it’s embarrassing.” - Rick Scott for Florida Spokesman Greg Blair
