Florida Republicans don't want to share documents
The Republican Party of Florida doesn't want to share some documents in the upcoming criminal trial of its former chairman.
Party officials asked a judge to nix a request from Jim Greer's attorney seeking certain documents. Those documents deal with fundraising and consulting agreements for the party, the state House and state Senate from 2003 to 2012.
An attorney for the Republican Party says in a court filing that those documents are confidential and contain proprietary information.
A hearing on the matter is set for next week.
Greer is charged with steering party money to a shell company he formed. He has pleaded not guilty and his attorney insists that many top party officials knew about the company.
Greer's criminal trial starts at the end of the month in Orlando.
