Former GOP Exec Recalls Prostitutes At Fundraiser

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A key figure in the government’s prosecution of former Republican Party of Florida chairman Jim Greer says he witnessed prostitutes at a 2009 fundraiser in the Bahamas that included Greer, leading Republican contributors and former Gov. Charlie Crist.

Former state Republican Party executive director Delmar Johnson III also said he refused a Greer request to approach an airline stewardess on his behalf.

A video of the accusations by Johnson were included in a pre-trial deposition taken by state prosecutors on June 15. It also indicated Johnson approached authorities about providing testimony against Greer in exchange for immunity. Johnson is also repaying the party $65,000 as part of his deal with prosecutors.

Johnson described Greer as very dictatorial and said no one questioned him about some of the alleged illegal activities.
