Self-awareness-impaired Charlie Crist testifies on Fla. voting laws, calls Rick Scott 'late-night joke'

Newly-minted officially official Democrat Charlie Crist testified this morning before the Senate Judiciary Committee. He was asked to address Florida’s election laws and procedures. Florida’s votes were among the last to be counted after last month’s elections due to long lines and a large number of absentee ballots.

The law, which was passed by a Republican-controlled legislature, has been controversial for its cuts to early voting days, burdensome requirements for third-party groups registering voters, and extra rules for people voting before Election Day, as well as a host of other unpopular changes.

And Adams wasn’t alone:

    And does he have the fan blowing on his feet that he apparently needs during all interviews/debates?
    What a loser.

    If a people can’t make it to the polls on election day or send in an absentee ballot they probably aren’t that interested in voting to begin with.

      Maybe the Dems just couldn’t pay them what they wanted?
