Ponzi Schemer Alleges Quid Pro Quo with Crist

"A convicted Ponzi schemer's court claims that Charlie Crist engaged in a contributions-for-favors 'quid pro quo' has come at a damaging time for the former governor who wants his old job back," the Miami Herald reports.

"Crist's campaign and defenders vociferously denied Scott Rothstein's testimony Wednesday and Thursday as the desperate act of a fraudster seeking to shave time off a 50-year prison sentence for the $1.4 billion Ponzi scheme he masterminded. But Rothstein's veracity aside, the political damage is tolling on Crist, who's also in the midst of a national book tour."
