Former GOP official's work release job: La-Z-Boy sales

Serving time for theft, money laundering

ORLANDO, Fla. — Jim Greer, former chairman of Florida's GOP, now serving prison time for stealing from the party, has found work at a La-Z-Boy showroom in the area, according to an Orlando Sentinel story.

Greer, 51, is in a work release program and is paid $8 an hour plus commission at one of the four area La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries stores, the report said. He pleaded guilty to theft and money laundering in 2010 after being charged with stealing $125,000 from the state GOP.

The disgraced former political leader has seven months left to serve on an 18-month prison sentence, the report said.
