    TALLAHASSEE In a wide-ranging deposition that spanned two days in late May, former Florida Republican Party chairman Jim Greer denounced some party officials as liars and "whack-a-do, right-wing crazies'' as he described turmoil in the months before his resignation. Greer said some GOP leaders were meeting to discuss ways they could suppress black votes while others were constantly scheming against each other. He blamed criminal fraud charges filed against him in 2010 on legislative leaders and other party officials who he says orchestrated an investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the statewide grand jury to avoid...

    TALLAHASSEE -- Gov. Charlie Crist's independent U.S. Senate campaign is refunding nearly $10,000 to Jim Greer after the indicted former Republican Party chairman asked for the money to help pay for his legal defense. ``As you know circumstances have caused me to need money to defend myself and take care of my family,'' Greer wrote in an Aug. 5 letter. ``I know sending the money back is hard, but with what has happened it may be politically beneficial for you to do.'' [snip] In the one-page letter, Greer spit fire at the Republicans who ousted him, calling them ``liars, racists...

After his refusal months ago to return money to Republican donors who requested refunds when he abandoned their party, Mr. Crist has agreed to refund $9,600 in campaign contributions from an indicted political ally who needs the money for his legal fees.

    Gov. Charlie Crist personally signed off on his former Republican Party chairman's confidential fundraising role with the state party, according to Jim Greer's attorney, whose allegation contradicts the governor's statement that he "didn't know anything" about the deal now part of a criminal investigation. State investigators say Greer and the party's former executive director, Delmar W. Johnson III, secretly set up a shell company called Victory Strategies to divert party money and enrich themselves. Greer was charged Wednesday with fraud and money laundering.

    Charlie Crist has tried his best to distance himself from the scandal surrounding Jim Greer, the former Chairman of the RPOF. "I didn't know anything about this Victory Strategies thing," Crist told a St. Petersburg Times reporter a day after saying "I do not feel complicit," despite his close ties to Greer. Greers shell company, Victory Strategies, INC., was being used to siphon money from the Party coffers. Coincidentally, Victory Strategies, LLC was incorporated in such a way as to hide from view the person or persons who are officers of the corporation. To do this, Greer used a law...

    Jim Greer was arrested and charged with fraud If you think former Republican Party of Florida chairman Jim Greer is having a bad day today, just imagine how Gov. Charlie Crist and Miami- native Marco Rubio feel. Each is tied to the newly incarcerated GOP fundraiser who had a penchant for spending money that didn't quite belong to him. And on the other side of the coin is Democrat U.S. Rep Kendrick Meek, who can point the "Republicans can't be trusted finger" at his opponents for the 2010 U.S. Senate and hope the votes roll in. Crist's connection is a...

    Two highly placed and independent sources, speaking strictly on background, tell me that Gov. Charlie Crist is preparing to leave the Republican Party and run as an independent in the race for the U.S. Senate.With Crist trailing Marco Rubio by 18 points in the latest polls, the Crist campaign has been in panic mode, launching attack after attack on the conservative Rubio.

    There comes a time in politics when the particular details of a leaders transgressions become a moot point. During his tenure as chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, Jim Greer has reportedly presided over lavish and irresponsible spending of donor money, the purging of critics and the use of dirty tricks like fake Twitter accounts to attack fellow Republicans. He also has rammed through dictatorial rule changes that would make Fidel Castro blush and used the RPOF as a club in the service of a single Republican politician. -snip- Greer likes to blame his troubles on Marco Rubio supporters...

    In what has to be the toughest choice since deciding what his position is on Obamas stimulus plan this week, Charlie Crist is expected to announce Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer will resign this month to focus on his family. No word on the exact date of the announcement, but likely in the days around Christmas when no one is paying attention to the news. Greer recently survived a confidence vote by the RPOF leadership, however, according to Hillsborough County State Committeeman A.J. Matthews the board was hoodwinked into the lopsided vote of support for Greer and this...
