Feds Subpoena Finance Records Of RPOF

rpofEditor’s Note – Why is it that there’s a general feeling of waiting for the other shoe to drop here?

Being of the tea party mind set and having an affinity for our Founding Fathers, I echo Patrick Henry when I say; “For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.”

It’s time to remove this albatross from around the neck of conservatives in Florida.  If there are guilty parties, surely, they know who they are.  Are these individuals quietly hoping this all just goes away?  How’s that working out for you?

Or, worse yet, is there an active effort behind the scenes to deny justice?

The 2010 election is behind us and if there’s to be proverbial blood spilt, now is the time for that to happen?  Before it spills over into the 2012 election…

Feds Subpoena Finance Records Of RPOF

Herald/Times Tallahassee Bureau

Federal investigators slapped the Republican Party with a subpoena seeking financial records as part of a wide-ranging corruption probe by the FBI, IRS and U.S. Attorney’s Office, the Herald/Times has learned.

The subpoena, delivered Election Day, sought documents related to big spending by top Republican honchos who were given party-paid American Express cards.

Top RPOF officials and investigators declined comment on the federal probe or the subpoena.

For more than a year, the party has reeled from scandals tied to the credit cards as well as four unrelated state criminal probes into its former chairman, a fundraiser, a former Florida House speaker and a Capitol insider.

Federal investigators have already interviewed consultants, donors and numerous senators — some in their Capitol offices. The investigations are being handled in multiple offices throughout the state, from Pensacola to Miami.

The specific targets of the recent subpoena are unclear.

Republican Party of Florida Chairman John Thrasher said he wasn’t sure about the details of the subpoena and said he couldn’t opine on them.

“We are not going to comment on subpoenas,” party spokesman Dan Conston said in a written statement.

A spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney Pam Marsh of Tallahassee also would not talk about the subpoenas except to say that the office would not direct anyone to serve subpoenas on a particular day, including Election Day.
