Jeff Greene's Security

Jeff Greene is an interesting, if not downright entertaining, candidate. He has a serious political team around him, and he's running for Florida's Democratic Senate nomination on a message of job growth and independence from special-interest influence. But he's also got a history that has, unsurprisingly, drawn much fascination. As his campaign announcement hit, so did the questions about him, and there was a brief window when the easiest found part of his campaign website was this page explaining his relationship with Heidi Fleiss, Mike Tyson's role as best man at his wedding, and his involvement with credit default swaps.


Well, The Buzz's Adam Smith did some digging and found out that this dude, Steel Chambers, a mean looking guy and an actor in some smaller and B gigs, used to work security for Greene in Malibu. Priceless. Here's what Chambers had to say:
"In Hollywood, in California, he's more well known than probably Michael Jordan is. He's like the man. He's been doing these Memorial Day parties at his house in Malibu the last 17 years,'' Steel told us.
...

**Greene never seemed to enjoy his bashes, because he was always focused on determining who didn't belong there.
...

**"He's a different kind of guy guy to work for. You work for him, you have to know anything and everything. The two things i learned to say to him: I'll find out. I'll take care of it."
