An audit suggests that Gov. Charlie Crist,  an independent candidate for the U.S. Senate in Florida, may have made perhaps "hundreds of thousands" in inappropriate charges, according to a report by orlandosentinel.com.

GOP, Crist, Linked, Financial- ScandalGOP state officials note a forensic audit by Alston & Bird LLP that reportedly shows that Crist spent money on travel, consultants, meetings and other expenses not tied to party business.

The news comes as Crist and Republican Senate candidate Marco Rubio are in a tight horse race in many polls.

The audit was triggered after former state GOP Chairman Jim Greer was ousted from office on the heels of out-of-control spending.
