The Republican Party of Florida this morning released the much-anticipated audit of its finances, prepared for the party by the law firm Alston & Bird in response to allegations that party leaders used party credit cards to cover personal expenses. Those allegations led to the resignation of Jim Greer as party chair; Greer was later arrested and charged with six felonies.

Alston & Bird’s mission in compiling the 51-page document, which you can read in full or download after the jump, was “to examine expenses incurred by the RPOF as a result of (i) charges on the RPOF’s corporate American Express credit cards; (ii) reimbursements made by the RPOF to individuals who incurred a purported business expense; and (iii) payments made by the RPOF to vendors and/or consultants.”

“We conclude that between 2007 and 2009 a total of $381,786.12 in expenses paid for by the RPOF were primarily not related to RPOF business,” reads the report’s summary, which adds that another $98,000 in expenses were “probably not related to RPOF business.”

We’re sifting through the report for highlights, but you can read in full or download the audit here:
