Oh, I LIKE the Cut of Her Jib!

You know the funeral Congress is flying down to? SOMEONE has been VERY PUBLICALLY DISINVITED.

Beverly Young to Charlie Crist: Stay away from memorial service

A host of dignitaries from Washington to Tallahassee to Tampa Bay will be on hand to honor the late U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young at his memorial service Thursday.

But one particularly prominent politician won’t be welcome at First Baptist Indian Rocks: Charlie Crist.

Young’s widow, Beverly Young, emailed the former Republican governor and likely future Democratic gubernatorial nominee, instructing him to stay away.


This e-mail is to officially advise you that your presence at my husband’s memorial services will be unacceptable. I have watched over the years, as Bill had, your transparent attempts to manipulate the political arena. I don’t want my husband’s memorial service to be another opportunity for that and I will not tolerate anyone turning this into a platform for political gain.
Please honor my families request.

Beverly Young
Widow of Congressman Bill Young

Oh, that’s GREAT. It’s her goodbye party for him and Charlie’s NOT what she wanted.

    Mrs. Young is spot on. She doesn’t want political crap while she’s grieving.

    I like this woman. A lot.

    Her late husband is smiling, ear to ear.

    As they say, “You go, girl” (or woman in this case).

    My condolences to Mrs. Young.
