In news from Tallahassee, it was reported in the Palm Beach Post that Florida Gov. Charlie Crist should not drop a lawsuit that could result in a final decision about whether Florida’s 30-year-old ban on gay adoption is constitutional.

The recommendation came from George Sheldon, secretary of the Department of Children and Families.  According to the Post, Sheldon is a Democrat appointed by then-Republican Crist in 2008.
