Republican Party of Florida Jim Greer said everything except not over my dead body to express his opposition to releasing the party's American Express bills in the wake of questions about former House Speaker Ray Sansom's spending.
"No no no,'' he said. "Never as long as I am chairman, and I am tired of talking about it."
Greer said Democrats are spreading false stories about party spending that are designed to hurt the GOP. "I am as tired as you are of reading this garbage...There's nothing inappropriate occurring.''
Yet Greer made a grand gesture by wielding a scissors and cutting up what he said was his own American Express card in front of about 200 party activists.
