Jeff Greene has joined his fellow contenders for Florida’s U.S. Senate seat on Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington’s list of “crooked candidates,” which he has cited in ads slamming fellow Democrat Kendrick Meek, his opponent in the upcoming primary.

“As part of our effort, CREW asked the public to send in their nominees for candidates we may have missed. Today, CREW announces that Jeff Greene, a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate in Florida, has been added to the list,” the group said last week. The group accused Greene, who is financing his own campaign, of skirting Federal Election Commission regulations by disclosing only in-kind contributions from himself, rather than revealing the vendors who sell to his campaign, which is not illegal, but has made it difficult to investigate his campaign.

CREW’s list includes Independent Charlie Crist and Republican Marco Rubio, so it now cites all four leading contenders for the Senate seat.

The group declined to endorse anyone for the seat, and predicted that Greene would have ads out “by the end of the week touting his omission from the list.”

Six days later, Greene’s ad appeared on YouTube.
