When he got the gig, Rep. Steve Crisafulli got a gavel with a piece of the Toomer’s Oaks in it. Now in his final days on the job as the state of Florida’s new Speaker of the House of Representatives, his colleagues are once again acknowledging his out-of-state football proclivities.
Despite being a Central Florida graduate, Crisafulli is a hardcore Auburn fan—his Golden Retriever’s name is Aubie—and the Gunwerks LR-1000 Rifle (at least some part of it) gifted last week to the leader of the Florida House’s “Auburn Caucus” was done in “Auburn burnt orange.”
