FL Republican Crook Tells All About Efforts To Suppress Black Vote

by Jim Newell

ScrewedDo you trust a former Republican muck-a-muck who’s now in a hot legal lava pool and scorned by fellow members of his party when he starts trashing his ex-colleagues? Sure, we do! Here’s delightful former party chairman Jim Greer, in a deposition recorded in late May: “I was upset because the political consultants and staff were talking about voter suppression and keeping blacks from voting.” Ha ha, sure, that must have really upset him, before he was kicked out and indicted on corruption charges. Nevertheless, he denounces the “whack-a-do, right-wing crazies” who have taken complete control of his political party, so let’s offer him the platform for a full explanation.

See, here is why we probably shouldn’t lionize this dick:

In a deposition Jim Greer gave as part of his lawsuit against the party, Greer portrays himself as a victim of a conspiracy against him while painting a picture of a party in turmoil that’s marred by loose ethics. But a secret tape released as part of the criminal investigation also shows Greer was worried about what party leaders knew about Victory Strategies, a company he and his executive director formed to pay themselves 10 percent of major party donations.

He was fine with all of these lunatics, see, when he was able to skim off some o’ that crazy people money for himself. He would tell the crazy parents that they were correct about Obama trying to indoctrinate their children with his address on the opening day of school, and they’d throw money at his party, and he’d steal it.

But anyway, this all sounds completely correct:

“They talked about not letting blacks vote … and minority outreach programs were not fit for the Republican Party,” Greer said.

He also detailed a party in chaos, saying elected leaders tried wrestling control of the party from then-Gov. Charlie Crist while “whack-a-dos” from the party right and tea partiers also tried to grab control. And he portrayed himself as getting caught in the middle as he stayed loyal to Crist

“The wing of the party that does not agree with Charlie Crist considered me a moderate chairman,” Greer said. “As was commonly referred to them, the whack-a-dos, the crazies, the right wingers. As Dean Cannon said to me one time, the people that want to destroy our Party are trying to take it over.”

Jeb Bush already did it in Florida for Dumbya Bush in 2000 giving him the election when the SCOTUS ruled NOT to count all the vote because it "May Harm Candidate Bush".
In Ohio Sec.of State J.Kenneth Blackwell who also happened to be Bush's re-election co chair in Ohio made sure in Democrat Precincts that there were not enough machines available while more than enough were available for Republican precincts.
With bad weather many Democrats were unable to vote,especially in heavily Democrat Cuyahoga County.
Then there was where the Diebold Machines that were manufactured by a big Bush supporter reversing heavy democrat vote to Republican in a Franklin County Precinct.
The vote cannot be close which leaves the Republican an opening to cheat especially in states with Republican governors like Florida,Ohio,and Pennsylvania where they control the machines and count.
It was their idol Stalin that once proclaimed "It does not matter how many vote for whomever,all that matters is who counts the vote" that Republicans live by in close elections.
