Ukrainian Strippers, Mike Tyson, and Florida Senate Candidate Jeff Greene
What do they have in common?

In the Florida Senate Democratic primary, billionaire partyboy Jeff Greene and Congressman Kendrick Meek are neck and neck in the polls. Here's a story from the St. Petersburg Times's Adam Smith that shows why Meek, whatever his own faults, is a stronger candidate than Greene:
Lots more colorful details from Mike Tyson in the story on a cocaine-fueled sex party later in the trip in Amsterdam (Greene says he wasn't there, though his staffers on the yacht allege pretty wild behavior occurred aboard the ship). "I care too much about my country to spend all my time talking about a yacht and Mike Tyson. Nobody cares about that except you," Greene tells the St. Pete Times.
It's enough to make one speculate that Greene came out of nowhere and entered the race on April 30 just to defeat a serious Democrat, thereby helping Charlie Crist, who announced his independent run on April 29, become the de facto Democratic nominee.
But, for the record, no one has uncovered a smoking gun linking Greene to Crist. The Florida primary is August 24.
