7. Greer: Lavish party spending on FL GOP credit cards was status quo. (Incoming, Mr. Rubio.)
Scott Maxwell at the Orlando Sentinel reports:

September 1, 2011

Well, GOP leaders knew this was coming. Embattled and indicted former GOP boss Jim Greer has decided to go public with his version of how lavish spending was not only allowed but demanded by party leaders.

In the piece by WTSPs Mike Deeson the first of two parts Greer maintains that leaders of the Florida House and Senate were the ones who first explained to him that they were allowed to spend extravagantly, using party credit cards. Greer says he was told: If we wanna have baseball games, limousines, five-star hotels, dont you or anyone else tell us we cant.

Im not sure Greer who begins the segment weeping comes out looking much (or any) better than he went in or that he has much credibility with folks on either side of the aisle.

But Im also pretty sure Republicans like Dean Cannon and Marco Rubio who are now again making headlines for their purchases of everything from suits and fancy dinners to new flooring for their own houses dont look too good either. Especially since much of the spending isnt merely accusations from Greer, but rather documented by receipts that have already been viewed by both the public and investigators.


In fact, in the piece, Greer all but cops to telling others in the party that, if they started pointing fingers, the ripple effects could ultimately burn the house down and destroy the party. This seems to be fuel for the promised fire with more to come.

Every one of these parasites needs to go. And it will probably take an insider to light the fuse.
