Gotta Love The Florida GOP

Views

If you’ve not delved into the wacky world of the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF), you owe it to yourself to get up to speed on the story (good place to start).

In the latest shenanigans the former party chairman Jim Greer, under indictment for allegedly defrauding the party, is now suing the party for $120,000 severance he claims he was owed.

At the same time, the Greer mess is bleeding over into the governor’s race (you’ll recall that Greer’s trouble already deeply implicates Charlie Crist and Marco Rubio in the U.S. Senate race), where outsider GOP candidate Rick Scott is trying to use Greer against establishment candidate Bill McCollum. That prompted Greer’s successor as party chairman to pop Scott for that effort, even though Scott is the frontrunner for the party nomination.

Sound like fun yet?
