Ex-Florida GOP chair sentenced for theft

ORLANDO, Fla. — The former chairman of the Republican Party of Florida was sentenced Wednesday to 1½ years in prison for stealing $125,000 in party funds, marking the fall of a man who once was one of the most powerful figures in the state.

Jim Greer, 50, was sentenced in an Orlando courtroom, more than a month after he pleaded guilty to four counts of theft and a single count of money laundering. The guilty pleas in February ended Greer’s trial before it started.
