Interesting: DSCC Rips Charlie Crist for Misusing Republican Party Funds

An audit by the Florida Republican Party has found Governor Charlie Crist (RINO) (I) misused party funds for personal reasons. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has seized on this and launched an attack on Crist. This may be the final nail in Crist's coffin.

From the DSCC:
Charlie Crist is facing increasing heat over a new audit of the Republican Party of Florida, which showed that Crist's handpicked party chair Jim Greer spent hundreds of thousands of dollars of party fund's inappropriately. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Crist and Greer spent Republican party dollars jet setting to such far off destinations as New York, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. Crist even spent party money to fly to his wife's island home. (emphasis mine)

The current chair of the Republican Party of Florida, John Thrasher, has said that Crist "had to know this [inappropriate lavish spending] was going on," and that the party will release the audit today. The Republican Party of Florida may go to court to get the money that was spent inappropriately back.
