Winner and loser of the week in Fla politics
Loser of the week: Delmar Johnson. The former Florida GOP executive director may be laughing his way to the bank, but today nobody is more radioactive in Florida politics than Johnson. Charlie Crist's former field organizer had a secret contract, under which the state GOP paid the 30-year-old Johnson more than $400,000 last year. Donors and party officials are livid, and scratching the heads about what's happened to the once venerable state party. Runners up: RPOF Treasurer Joel Pate and Assistant Treasurer Allen Miller. Don't wory, everything's peachy, they kept assuring fellow party leaders asking about party finances. Gotta wonder: Were these guys more interested in protecting donors' money or Jim Greer?
