Greer And Rubio Stand Behind Rep. Allen


Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer released the following statement today regarding Representative Bob Allen's announcement that he will not resign from the Florida House of Representatives:
"While this is an extremely serious matter, the House of Representatives and the judiciary system have established a process to deal with situations of this nature.  We are confident in the leadership of Speaker Rubio and we have no doubt that this matter will be addressed in a timely and appropriate manner."
And House Speaker Marco Rubio released this statement:

"The charge against Rep. Allen is serious. Because it is a misdemeanor, not a felony, the House rules don't provide for a specific response in the event that he is found to be guilty. Rep. Allen has advised that he intends to defend himself vigorously.  That is his right and the House will respect that right. We will continue to monitor the situation and take appropriate steps if necessary."
