Jim Greer, wife savages 'scumbag' Charlie Crist over extortion claim

Former Gov. Charlie Crist claimed that his former handpicked Republican Party Chair, Jim Greer, tried to extort him (background here). Greer's wife, Lisa, took to Facebook and savaged the former governor.

** Update: Greer himself also just chimed in

Here's Jim Greer: "As for the extortion claim, it's ridiculous. I was simply telling him man to man that our friendship was over, that I could not understand why he lied about the fundraising and the fact that I had done everything he directed me to do as Chairman of the Party, which now has cost me dearly. But most importantly, he was always wanting to know if I was "still on the team" and after he lied I was letting him know our friendship was over. One thing people used to tell me about Charlie that I never believed until the end is that loyalty is not a part of his make up once he no longer has a use for you, something my family and I sure found out the hard way. I do believe that if he had not been running for the Senate, he may have told the truth. But, at that time, he needed to do what Charlie does best, and that was to protect his own self interests, even if it cost his closest ally and friend everything."

Here's Lisa Greer: it is:

"So, a convicted felon and Charlie Crist whining like the girl that he is are the best the papers and others can come up with today to continue the bs campaign against my husband, even though sworn affadavits keep coming out that prove Charlie Crist and Party leadership ("I don't know how my signature got on that agreement"!) to be a bunch of liars. The only thing Jim can be found guilty of would be if it were a crime to trust in the lies and so called friendship of that scumbag Charlie Crist. The transcript and recording of the phone call have been released and there is no extortion there. Clearly FDLE agreed or they would have talked to Jim over a year ago. The truth of the matter is the phone call was the result of Charlie having his minions call Jim begging him not to include him in any book that he might write and indicating that he would " help" if this occured. Charlie will do and say anything to be somebody again (perhaps a run for Governor as a Democrat?). He cleary showed his lack of honor and character when he flip flopped on everything he once stood for in his desparate efforts near the end of his FAILED Senate campaign. Charlie, remember directing Jim to deliver Marco Rubio's AMEX statements in an unmarked envelope to the Miami Herald? I once loved and trusted Charlie Crist, I now know he would whore himself out to anyone that will put him in power again. I am sick of the games and lies, I have a family to protect and a precious baby girl on the way, the truth must come out to clear Jim's name. So go ahead Charlie, use what little juice you have left, why don't you make one of your cheesy, demeaning commercials to spread your lies. Jim Greer can't wait to face you and the rest of the Party in court, the truth will come out and Jim will be found not guilty on ALL counts."

Well Crist and Greer were made for each other: one lies, the other steals. And they have histories of it.

But the two qualities they share in spades are:
1) the personal ambition and lust for power, and
2) the treacherous souls of traitors.

Birds of a feather, who once flocked together.

In my entire adult life of following politics in four states , I have never seen any person get screwed like Mr Greer has . Charlie Christ has got to be the worst person to ever hold an elected office . The facts , and I do mean FACTS of this case , the witness statements , the TRUTHS of this matter , Charlie Christ is the most untruth teller the Great State of Florida has ever had in Politics . How is he getting away with this ? This entire matter needs outside the State Attorney Office investigation and prosecution . If this is allowed to go foward , no law abiding citizen will be safe getting involved in the Politics of Florida !My prayers are with the Greers . I hope Mrs Greer does not have any problems with the baby because of this strees that Charlie Christ has caused them . He has screwed the taxpayers many times , but no expecting mother should have this on her mind . I hope Mr Christ likes it hot , because he will spending a long time in ......H.....E......Double Hockey sticks !

What a bunch of bs. The entire problem stems from the RPOF. They are all corrupt and Greer is the fall guy. They should start looking at George LeMiuex since he put Greer in as head of the RPOF.

RPOF Leader

If anyone at RPOF has any smarts, Drop this case, Pay Greer what it takes to get him to stop talking and end all of this mess today before Summer and the convention. Many people know the RPOF executive board is made up of stupid people, But where is BB or someone telling Curey and Scott to Pay up and stop this election loser case now.

Shane Grisham

i know the Greers personally. They are super super SUPER folks..Jim and Lisa would give you the shirts off their backs..Someone else above said it right. The RPOF made Greer their fall guy.. He never swindled anything. He merely put in hard work, and wasn't paid his rightfully owed severance package after they screwed him. Crist is a crook and a homosexual! Let the TRUTH come out in July!

Jim Greer is not a nice person. He is an evil, conniving, liar.

Former Employee

I wouldn't put it past Jim Greer to threaten, extort, lie, or whatever. I have seen a pattern of behavior with this man and his wife is a clueless dolt.


Jim Greer is a narcicistic, self centered, self absorbed ingrate. I worked for that man and he is a liar. His wife Lisa is the most unstable person I have ever met. They have the most disfunctional marriage I have ever witnessed. Their dirty laundry is always on display for all to see and hear. Lots of Screaming and threats of divorce. They use each other because they are both afraid of the dirt they have on each other. Most pathetic people on this universe. They get what they deserve.
