Tyson says he didn't do drugs on Greene's boat

Politico is reporting an interview with fomer boxing star Mike Tyson in which he says he never did drugs aboard U.S. Senate candidate Jeff Greene's boat when they traveled together in 2005.

"I didn't do drugs on the boat. I had a problem. I had just lost a fight. I was depressed. I was fighting for 20 years, I was finding out after 20 years I was broke. Jeff said, 'Come with me on the Summerwind.'"

"I would go places," he said. "I wasn't with Jeff 24 hours a day. I wasn't on the boat 24 hours a day."Mo

Tyson, now sober, offered a detailed account of time he spent on Greene's yacht to Sports Illustrated last month.

"This [drug dealer] goes and gets me a big rock of cocaine," he said. "So pretty soon I got a party going on. I got everything: I got these rugby players. I got these naked girls, I got all these ... everything's going on in the room."
Can't imagine why a bankrupt felon might change his story for a billionaire...
