Perhaps it was the wine that made some Republicans forget details of events involving former party chairman Jim Greer. Or maybe it was Greer who drank the wine and was mis-remembering.
Those suggestions were tossed around among lawyers as they put former Gov. Charlie Crist under oath last year to ask him about a series of conversations he had with Greer and others as Greer took over party fundraising in 2009.
Crist, a lawyer, former legislator, education commissioner, attorney general and governor, said it was his first time to be questioned under oath in a court proceeding, a remarkable thing for a man who has spent most of his adult life in politics.
Many of the other witnesses that have been questioned under oath also suffered from a failure to recall details of Greer's fundraising activity. More from Lucy Morgan here.
