Well, Florida Democratic Party communications director Eric Jotkoff thinks he knows. And in a Valentine’s Day card spoof aimed at Bill McCollum that thanks him for opposing the release of the party’s AmEx statements, Jotkoff claims the figure is high. How high? Here’s what he wrote in the release:
“On this Valentine’s Day, the Florida Democratic Party obtained a copy of the secret card to A.G. Bill McCollum thanking him for refusing to hold the RPOF accountable from former RPOF Executive Director Delmar Johnson, along with the 11 Republican State Senators and 18 GOP State House Members who had RPOF AmEx cards.”
Jotkoff isn’t revealing his source, and RPOF spokeswoman Katie Gordon Betta denied his figure was correct. “29 card carrying state legislators? No. I have no idea where that number came from,” she e-mailed us.
