A Tampa lawyer and Democratic fundraiser who worked as finance director of Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink's successful 2006 campaign, Jeff Lieser, is telling donors that he has put his law practice on hold to oversee Gov. Charlie Crist's "Democratic fundraising efforts."
Crist has been stepping up his Democratic outreach since he left the Republican party two months ago to run for the U.S. Senate as an independent.
Lieser is circulating an invitation to a fundraiser Thursday in Parkland at the home of Howard Dvorkin, founder of Consolidated Credit Counseling Services, who has been linked to indicted fundraiser Alan Mendelsohn. Download Parkland
