Last week, Jeff Greene threatened the St. Petersburg Times with a libel lawsuit after it ran along, a prominent article about a real estate deal in California in which his counterpart is now facing federal fraud charges.

Greene called the story “completely untrue” and said the paper had until Tuesday to print a front-page retraction. The paper stood by its coverage and invited him to write a letter to the editor. Tuesday has come, and still no retraction.

So will Jeff Greene make good on his threat? A spokesman says the Greene campaign “will issue a statement on that when we move forward.”
