Florida's disgraced former GOP chairman says the party had meetings about "keeping blacks from voting"
In the debate over new laws meant to curb voter fraud in places like Florida, Democrats always charge that Republicans are trying to suppress the vote of liberal voting blocs like blacks and young people, while Republicans just laugh at such ludicrous and offensive accusations. That is, every Republican except for Florida’s former Republican Party chairman Jim Greer, who, scorned by his party and in deep legal trouble, blew the lid off what he claims was a systemic effort to suppress the black vote. In a 630-page deposition recorded over two days in late May, Greer, who is on trial for corruption charges, unloaded a litany of charges against the “whack-a-do, right-wing crazies” in his party, including the effort to suppress the black vote.
Greer said "the party was in turmoil" as officials wanted to get rid of him and former Gov. Charlie Crist because they disagreed with some of Crist's decisions, including the appointment of a liberal African-American judge to the Florida Supreme Court, Crist's endorsement of John McCain for president in 2008 and the hug Crist gave President Barack Obama in 2009. "My phone lit up with people wanting me to censure the governor,'' Greer said. "The tea party came into existence. There was a feeling within the party that the tea party was just a bunch of whack-a-dos."
Greer said he warned others at the party that the budget committee was made up of "whack-a-do, right-wing crazies'' who were trying to take over because of continuing disagreements with Crist and legislative leaders. House and Senate leaders insisted that no one at the party could control their campaign finances. "We eat what we kill,'' Greer said the leaders told him. "Legislative leaders were using their party credit cards like drunken sailors and they made it clear to me I was not to interfere with their spending,'' Greer said.

If this is true and not just sour grapes then good for him for coming forward.
I do feel reputation is very important and don't want to overlook the fact he was involved in corruption. But on the other hand maybe it takes someone dirty to be in the know on something like this.
Hope the truth comes out either way.
The main reason I'm not a supporter of the Republican Party and the Tea Party is I see them racist to there core. They are a politically correct bunch of racist, they don't come right out in your face. They use keywords like Illegal Immigrants
The main reason I'm not a supporter of the Republican Party and the Tea Party is I see them racist to there core. They are a politically correct bunch of racist, they don't come right out in your face. They use keywords like Illegal Immigrants, and phrases like using my tax money to give to others [minorities]. They won the election with the mid term in 2010, there corporate backer pumped more money into that mid term than any other one before. Then they set forth on there agenda, with voter id laws and purging voter rolls of those they felt are not good Americans (minorities) so they could cheat there way back into power in case there propaganda didn't work.
I feel the main opposition to Obama has alot to do with race. Of course its not politically correct to mention race as an issue with republicans/tea party present because they act like racism doesn't exist.
I don't thin all republicans and tea party members are racist but I think a large percentage of them are.
