FLORIDA DEMOCRATIC PARTY RESPONDS TO REPORTS OF CHRISTIAN ZIEGLER’S BUYOUT REQUEST

Chair Nikki Fried says “I’ve heard more reasonable demands from toddlers”

Today, Florida Politics reported that Christian Ziegler, the disgraced Chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, is seeking a multi-million dollar buyout from the RPOF Executive Committee. In response, the Florida Democratic Party has released the following statement:

“This is an absolute joke,” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried. “Christian Ziegler has spent weeks dragging his name, his family, and his party through the mud and he wants $2 million dollars to step down? I’ve heard more reasonable demands from toddlers.

“Let’s not forget — Christian Ziegler is an accused rapist. If the buyout request is true, thinking that he’s owed money for putting the Florida GOP in this situation shows exactly how little respect he has for Floridians . The best time for him to resign was two weeks ago. The second best time is now.”
