What Does Charlie Crist Do Now?
|Former-Governor Charlie Crist|
There was a lot of speculation as to what Crist would do once he left office. An appointment in the Obama administration? A possible recurring gig commenting for one of the cable news channels? The time honored tradition of lobbying? A sponsorship deal with a tanning salon?
Nope, apparently those things won't come to pass. Instead, Crist is returning to law practice and will possibly become a part-time lecturer at Stetson University College of Law. It's not a done deal yet, but Crist mentioned the possibility in an interview yesterday with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, and Stetson released a press release noting their likely new hire.
Unlike the school's main campus in DeLand, Stetson's law school is located in Crist's home-base of Tampa Bay.
So, yeah, a return to private practice and a job teaching kids: that's a pretty low key after-life for a man who was once one of the more high-profile governors in the country.
