More trouble for state Republican leader Jim Greer. This time the feds may be involved.
Fort Lauderdale lawyer Michael D. Becker says he has been retained to sue the Republican Party of Florida.
The goal will be to get “a full accounting of the RDOF’s expenditures in 2008 based on evidence that Chairman Jim Greer has abused his authority and utilized party funds for his personal use, according to a letter sent to the party’s Tallahassee office.
Becker also wrote that his clients would be filing a “formal complaint with the U. S. Attorney “requesting (an) investigation into Mr. Greer’s inappropriate use of party funds and the federal income tax implications of his actions.
Becker said his clients are two activists and contributors to the Florida party.
“My clients are concerned, Becker said. “They want more disclosure. They want more transparency.
Greer got re-elected as chair of the Florida Party last month with major support from Gov. Charlie Crist.
