Gov. Charlie Crist insisted on CNN today that he knew nothing about Jim Greer's secret fundraising deal until he read it in the newspaper.
"It is an unfortunate situation. It is very disappointing and sometimes people disappoint you. And that's what has happened here," Crist told host Candy Crowley.
But what about the contention from Greer's attorney that Crist "knew about Victory Strategies from the very beginning?"
"Absolutely untrue," Crist says. "You know, sometimes desperate people say desperate things. And it's very sad."
