Buzz: Rubio may have other issues

March 3, 2010

The persistence buzz out of Tallahassee is that Republican U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio may have other issues to battle as investigative reporters dig deeper. The GOP credit card charges may only be the tip of the iceberg. Will post the information as I get it.

    Jason is right. No one is going to care. Besides, no matter if it is cheating on your wife or 200 hundred dollar haircuts, it is different when the Right Wing Guy does it….

    Lucky for him most of the hardcore “conservative” voters don’t actually pay attention to this sort of thing. Fox News would never in a million years give this story any air time, so the people Rubio is trying to appeal to aren’t going to know anything about it. As long as he says that he’ll lower taxes, the average “conservative” voter could care less what else he does. He could use public money to build a rocket-ship to fly into the sun, and as long as some wealthy republicans are paying $100 a year less in property taxes, no one will ever complain.

    This is from today’s Miami Herald:

    “U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio admitted that he double-billed state taxpayers and the Republican Party of Florida for at least eight plane tickets when he was speaker of the Florida House.”

    So, we have shenanigans with plane tickets in addition to home repairs, electronics, cars and booze being billed to various party and state credit cards illegally. Of course he is claiming its the fault of his political enemies for making him look bad. He claims he just made another in a ever mounting series of money mistakes. Poor dear, should we hole it against him that he thought he could enrich himself with other people’s money? After all that’s why people run for office, right?

    How about asking how much he spent to remodel his office while he was speaker.
