LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - The Republican Party of Florida says it's considering a possible lawsuit against Gov. Charlie Crist and former party officials.
The party says its executive board met in central Florida Saturday to review a forensic audit of the party's finances under former chairman Jim Greer. The board voted to request additional information regarding "inappropriate expenses" supposedly charged by Crist, Greer and former state GOP executive director Delmar Johnson III.
Crist is running for U.S. Senate as an independent after leaving the party in April. His campaign's press secretary characterized the GOP's threat of a lawsuit as "the same old political games."
The executive board has not decided whether it will make the audit public.
