More GOP lawmakers want Greer out as state party boss

TALLAHASSEE — More top Republican officials want embattled state party chairman Jim Greer to resign.

Former House speakers Dan Webster and Tom Feeney were among several influential former lawmakers included in a letter Monday from former state Rep. Ron Richmond that urged Greer to quit.

The letter said long-standing momentum to build the Republican Party into the majority party in Florida over the years has deteriorated under Greer, whom they accused of wasteful spending of contributions intended for political purposes.

The letter said Greer's leadership has been tumultuous and created strife among the party faithful.

Republican Party leaders are meeting this weekend in Orlando and Greer's status might be addressed.
