Reading over the six-page lawsuit filed by Jim Greer yesterday, it says that RPOF leaders, including John Thrasher, reneged on a deal that would have paid Greer a severance package of $11,250-a-month for 11 months, plus health insurance (Republicans sure are insistent about getting their own health care taken care of!), to resign his post earlier this year. He also wants damages from the party and from Thrasher (who doesn’t?)
More important, the lawsuit also includes Greer’s explanation for why party leaders turned on him: because he endorsed Gov. Charlie Crist in the GOP primary for U.S. Senate over Marco Rubio. That act, the lawsuit says, prompted “a vicious campaign of personal character assassination” by party leaders that ultimately forced him out. Read the lawsuit document here.
