In wake of Bill McCollum's loss, Delmar Johnson tweets Bible verse

Right around midnight on primary day, the Republican Party of Florida establishment got a message from an old friend: Delmar Johnson, the party's former executive director. Johnson, ousted as part of the Jim Greer scandal that rocked the party earlier this year, tweeted this message:

"Galatians 6:7-8."

Buzz will save you the trouble of searching for your Bible. Here are the verses, as found in the King James version:

"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting."

The timing so soon after Bill McCollum's shocking loss to Rick Scott in the Republican primary for governor hardly seems a coincidence.

And Greer's wife, Lisa, had this message on her Facebook page: "Boy that Karma sure can be a bitch."
