by Tom McGregor    Mon, Sep 8, 2014, 11:53 PM

Rick Calderoni, owner of the Green Iguana, a gay bar in Tampa Bay, feels disgruntled that his friend, Charlie Crist, refuses to disclose his sexual preferences for gay men, while he hits the campaign trail running for governor of Florida as a Democrat.

According to the Broward/Palm Beach Times, "The rumors about Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and the Green Iguana just wouldn't go away. The story goes that the Florida governor frequented the Green Iguana, a bar in Tampa, back in the early 1990s when he was just starting his political career. He was less careful back then, people say, and during his partying at the Green Iguana, he was openly gay."
