Jim Greer, former Florida GOP chairman, sentenced to 18 months in prison

An Orlando judge today sentenced Jim Greer, former high-flying chairman of the Florida GOP, to 18 months in prison, followed by one year of probation.

"You certainly in my opinion egregiously violated a position of trust," Circuit Judge Marc Lubet said at sentencing. "While you do need to go to prison for this, you don't need to go for 42 or 46 months."

It was a humbling end for a man who, until four years ago, wielded enormous political power in Florida and was part of then-Gov. Charlie Crist's inner circle.

But the sentence was significantly lower than what the state had asked for: a 3 1/2-year prison term.

1. Does that mean Scott is next?

It will be a cold day in hell when Scott is held accountable for violating a position of trust.

This is mostly payback from the GOP for the toes he stepped on.
