Florida's anti-marriage amendment, which just got enough signatures a couple weeks ago to get on the ballot this November, can't even get the support of the state's Republican governor.
Charlie Crist doesn't support Florida's anti-marriage amendmentFollow alexblaze
To make matters worse, Florida now has a governor that is in no position to champion heterosexual marriage, either.
Three years ago, when the initiative started, Florida had a married governor.
But now we have Charlie Crist, whose one marriage lasted for six months, and who, despite his good looks, position of power and occupancy of a big, empty mansion in Tallahassee, can't seem to land a steady girlfriend.
Cough, cough, gay, cough, cough.
But on the amendment specifically:
He's no help at all. And even though he signed a petition to support the same-sex-marriage ban while he was running for office, he says he's not interested in pushing the issue anymore.
"It's not something that moves me," he said last week.
Sure, the amendment can move forward without the support of the state's top Republican, but it's not going to make it any easier.
