Lame: Florida GOP tries to lay blame for Greer at Crist’s feet

This is just lame.

The Florida GOP is trying to lay the blame for Jim Greer’s felonious actions at Charlie Crist’s feet after Greer pled guilty to four counts of grand theft as part of a plea agreement:

“Today, Jim Greer, the man Charlie Crist personally picked to lead the Republican Party of Florida, admitted his guilt to five felony charges. For the past three years, Jim Greer has tried to damage the reputation of the Republican Party and its leaders, but the truth is now known that Jim Greer broke the law, stole from RPOF and our donors, and then said and did everything he could to cover up and distract attention from his crimes. Everything Jim Greer has said and done over these past few years should be considered in that light.”

Sounds like the oppo department at the RPOF is bitter there won’t be a full trial for Greer from which it could attempt to make further ridiculous connections to Crist.
