So, with the recent 5-4 Surpeme Court Ruling – I wonder if he had to read his Miranda Rights to the Police?
What is interesting about this is that Jim Greer was forced to resign from his Party Chairmanship when information about his high-spending lifestyle and extravagant spending utilizing the Party’s credit cards surfaced. Also ensnared in that scandal was Tea Party darling, and current Republican nominee for US Senate, Marco Rubio.
Does Jim turn “states evidence” to avoid spending the next 30 years of his life behind bars?
Hmmmmmmm… I’m beginning to believe Representative Meeks may have a shot after all!
WDBO Local News – Former GOP head jailed, charged with stealing from party
Jim Greer is facing several felony charges. He was arrested around 9:00 Wednesday morning by the FDLE at his home in Oviedo.
Greer is charged with one count of organized fraud, one count of money laundering and four counts of grand theft.
“Mr. Greer developed a scheme to take money from the Republican Party of Florida through a shell company that he created called Victory Strategies,” said Florida Statewide Prosecutor Bill Shepherd.
Greer is accused of entering into a vendor contract with the company.
“Victory Strategies then was paid 10 percent of major donor funding that came in to the party through contributions,” said Shepherd.
He says the company also received more than $60,000 dollars that was simply paid at Greer’s request. In all, he’s accused of stealing more than $100,000 from the state GOP.
If convicted of all counts, Greer could spend the rest of his life in prison. He’s being held under $105,000 bond at the Seminole County Jail.

Meeks’ shot improved as soon as Crist chose to be an independent candidate instead of pulling out altogether. I bet Crist would rather undermine Rubio than defeat Meeks.

If Rubio crashes and burns, then it’s Meeks versus Christ which, while favoring Christ gives Meeks an outside shot. In a 3 Way, I think its a toss up between Christ and Rubio.
