Crist Resists Pressure On Supreme Court Appointment

February 12th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist is about to appoint his fourth pick to the Florida Supreme Court and he is getting a full court press from all sides of the political spectrum.

From the right, the Governor is being pushed to appoint a conservative white male, Judge Jim Perry from Brevard County. From the left, he is being asked to pick an African American or a woman. Crist says neither side will influence him.

“Well, you know, any appointment to the Florida Supreme Court I weigh very heavily, and look for the very best, Crist said. In these interviews what I always look for, whether it’s a Florida Supreme Court Appointment or a Circuit court appointment, is somebody who is intelligent, compassionate, humble, and earnest. And that same test will apply for this next appointment to the Florida Supreme Court.”

Crist will make an appointment before March.
