Painting of Charlie Crist Has a New Owner

May 12th, 2010 by Mike Vasilinda

The Republican Party of Florida is $7,700 richer tonight. $7,700 is the bid the party got on eBAY for an oil portrait of Governor Charlie Crist. The GOP put the painting up for bid the day after the Governor switched his US Senate run to No Party.

We were able to sell the painting for $7,700, which is more than we paid for the painting of Governor Crist and Chairman Greer,” Katie Betta, spokesperson for the Republican party of Florida, said. “So that is certainly a victory in our eyes and were grateful to the folks who bid on the painting. Were extremely grateful that we will have another $7,700 to add to our campaign account to make sure we elect Republicans in November.

The party would not divulge who purchased the painting and said other than contract information they did not know if the person was a Republican, Democrat, or their motivation for making the purchase.
