The St. Pete Times has discovered that U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio and his wife controlled two political action committees that let him raise from a nearly insolvent young lawmaker to a power broker and Florida House Speaker. According to the St. Pete Times and Miami Herald, about $600,000 in contributions was stowed in those two committees.
Here’s how they spent the money:
* paid relatives nearly $14,000 for what was incorrectly described to the IRS as “courier fees” and listed a nonexistent address for one of them.
* paid $5,700 to his wife, who was listed as the treasurer, much of it for “gas and meals.”
* billed more than $51,000 in unidentified “travel expenses” to three different credit cards
