Crist portrait sold on eBay for $7,700

Associated Press

The Florida GOP says it's sold an oil painting of Gov. Charlie Crist, who bolted the party to run for U.S. Senate as an independent.

Party spokeswoman Katie Betta says the buyer was a registered Florida Republican who wanted to remain anonymous after paying $7,700 on eBay. Party officials say they paid $7,500 for the Crist portrait and a painting of former Republican Party of Florida Chairman James A. Greer.

In a letter to members, the party sought donations to help "move forward from the sordid legacy of Charlie Crist and Jim Greer," the former party chairman.

Crist dropped out of an August Republican primary against conservative favorite Marco Rubio after polls showed him trailing badly. Instead, he'll run with no party affiliation in a three-way race, likely against Rubio and Democratic U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek.

It's a well known way to make campaign contributions without having a limit. The best way is to write ridiculous books, or rather have someone write them and then have people or organizations which support that particular party or person buy up thousands of them. This is true right now of Sarah Palin and Karl Rove. Who in their right mind would buy those books from, say, Barnes and Noble?
