Former Florida GOP Chief Sent to Jail

Former Florida Republican Party Chairman Jim Greer was sentenced to 18 months in state prison, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Greer last month "pleaded guilty to money laundering and theft, admitting he had created a company called Victory Strategies to siphon to himself and an associate some $200,000 of party donations."

Said a judge: "You're now a convicted felon, sir. I feel that this crime deserves prison. You egregiously violated a position of trust."
