Florida GOP chief pleads guilty before trial

Greer pleaded guilty to four counts of theft and a single count of money laundering for funneling money from the Republican Party of Florida to a company he set up with his right-hand man. He could be sentenced to a minimum of 3 ½ years and a maximum of 35 years in prison at his March 27 sentencing.

The plea deal avoids what would could have been an embarrassing trial for the state GOP. Some of Florida's most powerful politicians were scheduled as witnesses, including former Gov. Charlie Crist, former U.S. Sen. George LeMieux, former Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum and several state House and state Senate leaders.

Somebody needed to take the wrap! So all of the other crooks can keep on, keepin' on!

An embarrassing trial for corrupt politicians,

Rubio and Jim Greer

Are good buddies.I suspect that's why they are mopping this up now.Just keep it in mind for primary time.

Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.
