Mr. Jeff Green the three (R’s)!

11/26/09. Miami. Profile of billionaire Jeff Greene, this is his 145 foot yacht the Summerwind that is at Merrill Stevens boat yard.

 Democratic wannabe,
And
Recovering Republican Reject,
Mr. Jeff Green the three (R’s)!
If he loses once again will he run as an Independent?
If at first you don’t succeed try and try again!
In 1982, he ran unsuccessfully for a Southern California congressional seat as a Republican.
Greene has no real connection to Florida or to the Democratic Party, as evidenced, Meek said, by a $5,000 check Greene wrote
in 2009 to California’s Republican gubernatorial candidate, Meg Whitman.
Florida voters might have written off the frenetic, unpolished candidacy of the 55-year-old billionaire as yet another footnote in the list of fabulously rich businessmen
who self-fund a run for higher office in midlife.
Voters may still do just that.

But Greene’s campaign for the Democratic nomination is looking less quixotic (exceedingly idealistic; unrealistic and impractical),
by the day.
For the August primary, he has spent more than $4 million on advertising, including in media markets outside of Florida, and has caught up in the polls with four-term congressman Kendrick Meek, a political scion with the party’s backing. Greene has hired the political consultants behind John Edwards’s 2008 presidential campaign and the pollster behind New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, an independent.
The plane — replete with polished wood paneling, bed, sofa and kitchenette — served a political point:
Greene’s wealth meant he was beyond the establishment and couldn’t be bought.
Floridians,
he hopes,
will see him as a credible insurgent and jobs creator with a compelling story.
He also hopes that they overlook a few milestones in his unusual biography:
He’s now in his third year as a Florida resident.
Greene is a Massachusetts native
and
lived his adult life in Southern California.
In 1982, he ran unsuccessfully for a Southern California congressional seat as a Republican.
To distract from his own problematic past, Greene has attacked Meek at every opportunity.
“He’s gone super-negative because he doesn’t want anyone to focus on his past, and his past is a very murky one,”
Meek said in a phone interview.
The congressman argued that Greene has no real connection to Florida or to the Democratic Party, as evidenced, Meek said, by a $5,000 check Greene wrote in 2009 to California’s Republican gubernatorial candidate, Meg Whitman.
Meek slammed Greene for housing Fleiss, a woman who
“ran a prostitution ring,”
and
for paying for ads with money made off of the misery of Americans
who lost their homes.
“Floridians are going to learn about those facts,” Meek said.
