Tallahassee, FL --- June 9, 2012

Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist is complaining about possible witness tampering by a lawyer representing the former head of the Republican Party of Florida.

Former GOP boss Jim Greer goes to trial in July on charges he steered party money to a shell company he created. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Documents released Friday show Crist called the Florida Department of Law Enforcement after learning of exchanges between Greer's lawyer and John Morgan. Morgan had been representing Crist.

The documents include summaries of questioning by FDLE of Morgan and Crist as well as emails between Morgan and Greer's attorney, Damon Chase.

Morgan told FDLE that Chase said he planned to depose Crist and ask embarrassing questions about Crist's personal life and habits.

    If it is witness tampering or Sheriff's corrections officers sleeping with inmates... It is all unacceptable. Leon County deserves better!

    Crist was an unremarkable governor. As a matter of fact, he was directly responsible for killing two major economic developments in Taylor County that would have provided hundreds of high paying jobs here and in the surrounding counties. Way to go Charlie. I don't know what he is, but a Republican he isn't.

    This is the same type of corruption that we see in our very own Leon County Sheriff's office. What about internal affairs? There is no oversight in the high offices! Leon County needs a change!

    I dont care what Gov Crist's sexual preference is, as I think he was a great governor and I will always vote for him. He's the best we got for now.

    sounds like this could turn into a mafia moment.

    Follow the trail and it will lead right back to Scott and the Tea Baggers. They are worried Charlie will run again and win. Then they will be in the unemployment lines.

      Is there no limit to stupidity here?

    I believe Crist was a good governor, much better than what we have now. Sexual orientation is decided in the womb and not a choice that a person gets to make on their own. People are so cruel.

      Not true. There is absolutely no truth to that statement whatsoever.
