Governor Charlie Crist and capital punishment

Capital punishment, supported by a large majority of Floridians, has also been off the table in the Crist administration.
After a lethal injection was botched in December, Jeb Bush suspended executions. A state task force reviewed procedures and recommended changes, and executions are expected to resume in the next few weeks.
"I support it, and I will sign death warrants," Crist said of capital punishment. "But it will not be something I will be gleeful about. Without a doubt that is the most serious act any governor, I think, can do."
