Jeff Greene issued the following statement regarding the recent developments that both Kendrick Meek and Charlie Crist have misled the public and the media regarding what Kendrick Meek knew about Carrie Meek’s role with developer Dennis Stackhouse, and breaking developments that Charlie Crist personally signed off on former Republican Party Chairman Jim Greer’s confidential fundraising role with the state party.
Said Jeff Greene:
“The people of Florida should be outraged that Rep. Kendrick Meek and Governor Charlie Crist were both aware of corrupt actions by people close to them, but instead of stating the truth about what they knew – they continued to change their stories constantly in a cover-up attempt.
“According to recent media reports – both men knew more about the shady business deals than originally claimed.
“Kendrick Meek and Charlie Crist have violated the trust of the people of Florida with their lies and cover-up and both need to come clean immediately because the people of Florida deserve the truth from their elected officials.
“I’m running for U.S. Senate because I want to clean up the corrupt political system and restore the people’s trust in our government – a view that that Kendrick Meek, Charlie Crist and Marco Rubio clearly do not share.”
