Republican Party of Florida Credit Cards: The Republican Party of Florida under former chairman Jim Greer paid about $7 million to American Express from 2007 to 2009. RPOF stopped issuing credit cards in August 2009 after Greer cut up his own American Express card at a party meeting to quell the growing scandal. Republican Party staffers and certain legislative leaders were given credit cards and allowed to spend donors' money with little oversight.
