Well, well, well. Another “fiscal conservative” exposed as a fraud.
U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio charged grocery bills, repairs to the family minivan and purchases from a wine store less than a mile from his West Miami home to the Republican Party of Florida while he was speaker of the Florida House, according to records obtained by The Miami Herald/St. Petersburg Times.
Those expenses include a $1,000 charge at Braman Honda in Miami for repairs to the family car in January 2008. Rubio said the minivan was damaged by parking attendants at a political function and that the party agreed to cover half of his insurance deductible. The party also paid $2,976 for him to rent a car in Miami for five weeks, according to the records provided by a confidential source.
Now the good folks at Hertz will rent you a perfectly nice Chevy Cobalt for a mere $646 a month in Miami. But it appears that’s not fancy enough for a guy who wants to “control the excessive and wasteful spending in Washington that threatens to leave future generations with crushing debt and a country worse off than that of their parents and grandparents.”
Marco also ran up these bills with his wingnut welfare card.
- $765 at Apple’s online store for “computer supplies.”
- $78.10 for two purchases at Farm Stores in suburban Miami.
- $412 at All Fusion Electronics, a music equipment store in Miami, for “supplies.”
What will he tell his grandchildren?
