When he ran unsuccessfully for U.S. Senate in 2010 Jeff Greene called Democratic primary rival Kendrick Meek corrupt and implied his mother, former U.S. Rep. Carrie Meek, was too. Former Congressman Meek was livid about what he called personal attacks on his mother.
Eight years later, Greene is airing an ad taking on another legendary name in Florida politics – Graham — over the family business's ties to a mall proposed for northwest Florida.
Now Gwen Graham is firing back. She has a new ad responding to Greene, chastising him for “even falsely attacking my dad,” Bob Graham, Florida’s popular former two-term governor and U.S. Senator. It notes that she has been endorsed by the Everglades Trust.
