Charlie Crist Gets Called a "Big Dick" by Wife's Ex After Child Abandonment Court Case
Even the dramas of Tallahassee seem enviable to the bizarre family court case ex-Gov. Charlie Crist now finds himself in the center of. Crist married the then-Carole Rome during his term as Governor, and the two made plans to integrate Carol's two daughters into their lives. Now however, the girl's father, Todd Rome, the head of the Blue Star Jets company, says that Carole Crist has abandoned her teenage daughters and thinks Charlie is a big ol' dick.
"She refused to attend her daughter's graduation, visit them at summer camp or attend their birthdays," a source told Page Six at the time.
"It was most apparent today that Mrs. Crist's purported heartless disconnect from both her devastated teenage daughters and her alleged severance of the maternal bond shocked the good conscience of all courtroom observers, and drew genuine tears of pain from my client ... who begged the court for help," Rome's attorney, Mark Heller, told the New York Post .
"Nice going, Charlie. Nice look. Big dick! Big dick! Be really proud of yourself, Charlie!" he reportedly yelled.
