Ousted Florida GOP Chair Exposes Big Names in Corruption Scandal

Former Florida GOP chairman Jim Greer is in a world of hurt lately as an Orlando judge refused to throw out his various corruption charges on Aug. 25th, including six felony fraud and money laundering charges, along with an additional four counts of grand theft. Greer was arrested in June of 2010 after being forced out of his chairmanship in January. While Greer was shown crying in recent interview, it now appears that he is not going down without exposing big name Florida politicians who knew of his actions at the time, and chose not to speak out. Jim Greer is pictured below ( center) with Charlie Crist( left).

This episode in political corruption reads like a poorly written wanna-be bumbling gangster comedy…. yet it is anything but funny to witness the amount of corruption and cover-up that abounds in this disgraceful event in Florida politics. Jim Greer was the Chairman of the RPOF when he created a fake fundraising company, Victory Strategies LLC, that accepted about $125 grand from the RPOF, which Greer then apparently used for his own personal expenses. And that appears to be merely the start of Mr. Greers problems. Mr. Greer also violated federal campaign finance laws when he worked on ex-Governor Charlie Crist’s 2012 Senate campaign, in which he Florida GOP party resources on that federal campaign. Yes Jim Greer and Charlie Crist were pretty tight political buddies during Greer’s time as the Chairman of the Florida GOP. Crist appointed Greer to head the RPOF on the advice of current Senator George LeMieux whom was his chief of staff at the time. Charlie Crist also appointed George LeMieux to sit in his current U.S. Senate seat after Mel Martinez abruptly resigned. George LeMieux currently thinks the people of Florida will ignore all of his involvement in this scandal among other things, and elect him to the U.S. Senate in 2012, which I happen to have written about here.
