Ileana Ros-Lehtinen Slams Charlie Crist’s Position on Cuba Embargo
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., the first Cuban-American and Latina elected to Congress, was full of criticism on Monday over former Gov. Charlie Crist and his flip-flopping position on the Cuban embargo.
“I mean, the embargo has been there — what — 50 years now? I don’t think it worked,” said Crist on Friday during HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.” “It is obvious to me that we need to move forward and I think get the embargo taken away. Really. I believe that.”
In a series of tweets posted Monday — both in Spanish and English — Lehtinen slammed Crist for flip-flopping on the issue and expressed her disagreement with Crist over lifting the embargo.
