RPOF Sells Charlie Crist Oil Painting for $7,700
Bidding closed today on the painting by artist D. Arthur McBride, and the auction ended with a $7,700 bid from an anonymous buyer. The RPOF actually made a handsome profit: It bought the artwork, along with a painting of ousted party chief Jim Greer, for $7,500 in October last year. The works were commissioned by former executive director Delmar Johnson.
As for that auction that purported to be for a picture of Charlie Crist snorting cocaine in the '80s (for the low, low price of $600,000), that's been taken down.
