FL Senate – Former FL GOP Chairman Jim Greer arrested…
Update 2: The Hill has a breakdown of the charges which include grand theft, fraud and money laundering.
Update: Orlando Sentinel has more:
…The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has scheduled an 11:30 press conference.
Greer resigned from the party in January, under fire for lavish spending and for an undisclosed fundraising contract that paid him and his executive director, Delmar Johnson, $199,000 in 2009. According to the RPOF, $125,000 of that went to Greer. New party chair John Thrasher had requested an investigation of the deal, and Attorney General Bill McCollum turned the case over to FDLE….
oh boy. This is the joker who Crist put in there who resigned after trying to ‘help’ Charlie by releasing Marco’s credit card records…FOX broke it but no word on the charges yet…is it possible this is why Holder shunned the FL A.G. yesterday? (he met with MISS LA AL AGs but not FL) I dunno.
We support Marco for this seat. He is our ‘first’ conservative :0)
