A Voicemail Jim Greer left for former Gov. Charlie Crist June 12, 2011

Just about a year after his good friend and confidante Jim Greer was indicted on felony charges of organized fraud, theft and money laundering, former Gov. Charlie Crist found an ominous-sounding voice mail and a similar text message on his cell phone from the former chair of the Republican Party of Florida.

Crist reported the calls to FDLE on June 13, 2011, a day after the messages were left. Investigators and prosecutors interviewed Crist in Tampa a month later. Crist told them he had spoken with Greer from time to time after his resignation from the party but said the messages "came from out of the blue."
