Jim Greer, former head of the Republican Party of Florida, was arrested this morning, according to law enforcement officials. There was no immediate word on charges.
Update: And here’s the inevitable mug shot:
Update II: Central Florida News 13 will be streaming audio of the soon-to-come press conference being held to discuss the charges against Greer. Listen here. The FDLE press conference has concluded.
Update III: Greer is charged with six separate felony counts: one charge of organized scheme to defraud, four charges of grand theft and one charge of money laundering. Officials describe a scheme by which Greer arranged for 10 percent of all major donor money given to the state Republican Party to be directed to Victory Strategies, a shell company he set up. Greer would then draw money from Victory in order to maintain his “personal lifestyle.”
