Greer calls investigation a 'political vendetta'

Former GOP Chairman Jim Greer's attorney released a statement responding to the allegations that he is the target of a criminal investigation. "The statements and actions of John Thrasher today against his predecessor, former GOP Chairman Jim Greer, are without merit and the continuation of a political vendetta intended to conceal the actions of others and blame Chairman Greer, a private citizen, for the conduct of elected officials," his attorney, Gregory Miller, wrote in a statement.

"Mr. Thrasher’s accusations are a heavy-handed attempt to avoid the Party’s formally documented financial and legal obligation to Mr. Greer, who has not committed any criminal activity and looks forward to cooperating fully with any investigation."
