    -- Greer cut out the state party's existing successful fundraiser, according to the affidavit. First he tried to muscle in on her business then slashed her salary when she didn't play along. He also began restricting her access to Gov. Charlie Crist and blocking her from meeting with major donors, telling her they were "men's only" meetings.

    -- Greer's alleged scheme coincided with some tough economic times for the Florida GOP. At one point Greer held a press conference where he cut up an American Express card as a symbol of the party's new austerity measures. Except, the AMEX card didn't belong to the state party. It was some poor staffer's personal card. Other staffers scrambled to pick up the cut up piece before the press could photograph them and discover who the card really belonged to, according to the affidavit.

      after all if you believe govt has no role to play and yet you're apart of govt, there is no other attitude to take but a cynical one "Hey check this out! Look what we can get away with! THis is Great!"
