Rumors on the Twitter-nets: Mel Martinez to Resign Early
Roger Stone predicts; Mel Martinez resigns soon; Crist appoints caretaker - Jim Smith - and announces his candidacy for Sen.
A prediction by one guy posted on another guy's Twitter picked up from one alt-weekly's blog by another. How's that for a sound rumor? But Adam Smith is one of the state's most in-the-know journalists, and Stone is a knowledgeable politico.

We're assuming the Jim Smith in question would be the Republican former Florida secretary of state and attorney general.
