GOP chief Greer to Hoffman: Nuts to you!by Dara Kam | December 10th, 2009
GOP money man Al Hoffman, a developer and former finance director for the Republican National Committee, wrote a scathing letter to Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer asking him to step down.
“It is time for you to resign in order to end the excessive, irresponsible, unethical, and perhaps illegal spending that has marked your administration,” Hoffman wrote to Greer in a letter dated today.
Greer blew off Hoffman’s request after the state party executive board gave him a 25-2 vote of confidence this afternoon.
“It reminds me of a World War II United States Army general when he was asked to surrender. He wrote one word back on a piece of paper. And it was ‘nuts.’ So that’s all I have to say about the letter,” Greer said.
He said Hoffman’s out of touch and hasn’t done much in the way of fundraising for the state GOP in the past three or four years.
Maybe that’s because Hoffman was out of the country at the time.
President George W. Bush appointed Hoffman to serve as ambassador to Portugal in 2005.
