A 13-Year-Old Vote Comes Back to Haunt Crist.The St. Petersburg Times wrote that in 1993, then Senator Charlie Crist voted against a bill that would raise the fee that gun owners would have to pay for a criminal background check.
It was an especially controversial vote because, according to the article, "some of the money might have been used to buy bulletproof vests for police."
The Democratic Party is also quick to note that Crist was the only person in the legislature that voted against the bill.
"Inexcusable," the Florida Democratic Party said, calling Crist "the only lawmaker to vote against bulletproof vests for police."You can bet you won't see Crist talking about that in any of his many commercials.
