WEWAKHITCHKA, Fla. (AP) -- Former Republican Party of Florida chairman Jim Greer is in prison now, but he expects to included in the next gubernatorial campaign -- as the subject of negative political ads.

That's because Greer's notoriety is likely to be used against former Gov. Charlie Crist. Crist now might challenge Gov. Rick Scott as a Democrat.

Greer's criminal trial promised to embarrass state party leaders, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and Crist. Party officials came under fire three years ago from revelations of excessive spending at restaurants and luxury hotels on party-issued credit cards.

Before trial could begin, Greer pleaded guilty in February to four counts of theft and a single count of money laundering.

Reports say that he decided to end the case for his family's sake.
