RPOF Complains To Election Officials About Crist Billboards

TALLAHASSEE, Florida - The executive director of the Republican Party of Florida has filed a complaint with state elections officials claiming that Democrat gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist’s image on a law firm’s billboards should be reported as an in-kind campaign contribution.

The billboards advertise Morgan & Morgan P.A.  The RPOF claims that the billboards exceed the statutory contribution limit of $3,000 per person.  The complaint was filed with the Florida Elections Commission.

"I guess it should be no surprise that trial lawyer Charlie Crist is being helped by his trial lawyer partners at Morgan & Morgan, but his campaign's failure to report their help is a violation of the law,” said Juston Johnson.

“Morgan & Morgan billboards with Charlie Crist's face on them while he was a declared candidate qualified as a reportable contribution. Failing to report the billboards is a clear breach of the law and a promise to work 'for the people.'"

Morgan & Morgan has not responded to an email request for comment.


  1. If the billboards were paid for before Crist officially became a candidiate for a long period, then there is no foundation for the complaint. If the billboards are paid for independently, then it is no different than the same tactics being used by all the other poltical candidates to get around limits, thanks to Citizens United ruling by the pro corporate personhood Supreme Court. Left, right, and middle all oppose the ruling, but we are conveniently kept pitted against one another, instead of uniting against something so egregious to the living people of this nation.

  2. I guess that our elections do not mean... Our votes do not mean, since they simply decide for us, instead of us... God Bless Them!

  4. Greetings to all! To tell the truth, I'm inspired by the article you've managed to share. How incredible your work is! You might have spent a lot of time preparing this entry!

  5. It's important when you're a trial lawyer to get help from your more experienced colleagues. Their experience could help to overcome different bad situations and to write my dissertation cheap . I think that this will be a good start for career and for future actions.

  6. If in the course of the meeting the guilt of the crime is fully proved, it is worthwhile to take a very severe penalty.

    Honestly, I do not really like billboards. They often distract drivers' attention and sometimes because of this happen accidents.
    With regards to the article, in one of my college research paper example I wrote about advertising and politics. Unfortunately, one and the other are closely related. And both often promise more than they realize. Advertising is the engine of trade, it's true. But not everything that is advertised is really worth our attention.
    Also with politicians. Unfortunately, some of them will do their best to fall into a big politics. And how ordinary people will live - they do not care ...
