Jeff Greene's excellent yachting adventure

Summerwind Intriguing excerpt from The Greatest Trade Ever, by Gregory Zuckerman, about Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Jeff Greene's 2005 cruise into the Black Sea about his 145-foot yacht, Summerwind:

 "Greene brought two Ukranian strippers on board to make a cameo appearance and hired stewardesses from coastal towns to serve as his crew. Some doubled as massage therapists, which came in handy after a day of scuba diving, Jet Skiing or kayaking."

"Who knows how many things people are going to make up? Never happened," said  campaign spokesman Paul Blank. "Jeff was travelling on his boat with his Rabbi and his younger brother to visit Jewish sites in Romania and Odessa. "
