Episode 72: Ride or Die

Tina and Hillary cover former Clark County Commissioner Dario Herrera and Operation G-Sting and Former Governor of Florida Charlie Crist.

Tina’s Story
Dario Herrera served on the Clark County Commission beginning in 1998. But, when he is accused of taking bribes from a Las Vegas strip club owner, Herrera is stripped of his position.

Hillary’s Story
Charlie Crist began his political career as Florida state senator before winning the governorship in 2006, and he became known for his fickle stances on serious issues. But, his reputation really takes off when he blows from one political party to the next becoming one of the few politicians to lose a statewide election as a republican, independent, and a democrat.
