Greer pleaded guilty last month to five counts of theft and money laundering.

He was accused of taking $125,000 from Florida Republicans -- but he says party conservatives made up the claim to push out moderates like him.

Greer's plea halted a trial that would have included testimony from top state Republican leaders -- including former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist.

Crist, now a Democrat, nominated Greer for the Republican Party chairmanship.

Greer was arrested in 2010.
