29

June

Gov. Charlie Crist and a future House speaker are listed among the witnesses that could be called into court as part of a criminal corruption case against former Republican Party boss Jim Greer, according to documents released Tuesday by state prosecutors.

The state's Office of Statewide Prosecution released hundreds of pages of evidence, including a secretly recorded phone call between Greer and the party's former executive director, Delmar Johnson, as part of its deepening case against Greer for his involvement in establishing a secret company to siphon $200,000 in party donations.

Delmar Greer was arrested in his Seminole County home earlier this month and indicated on six felony counts of grand theft, money laundering and attempted fraud. He faces as much as 75 years in prison, if convicted.

Read the full story on the case against Greer and listen to a secretly recorded phone call between Greer and the party's former executive director, Delmar Johnson.
