Dems unleash second video targeting Rubio GOP party credit card scandal

by Dara Kam | February 26th, 2010

The Democratic National Committee released a second video highlighting U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio’s state GOP party-issued credit card spending when Rubio was Florida House Speaker.

The Dems’ attack ad is curious, however, because it appears to promote Rubio’s opponent Gov. Charlie Crist.

Interspersed with newsclips from MSNBC and FoxNews are interviews with Crist in which he criticizes Rubio’s AmEx spending and comments that if Rubio doesn’t like the flak, “That’s too bad. Welcome to the NFL.”

Rubio racked up nearly $110,000 on his Republican Party of Florida American Express card -including expenditures for items like Internet music, wine and repairs to his family mini-van – that are raising eyebrows on TV news shows nationwide.

The first ad is a take-off on the MasterCard “Priceless” marketing campaign. It also ends with the RPOF’s Tallahassee street address and advises watchers to send their credit card bills there.

    They have a lot of nerve. The GOP spends on this and the Democrats let their Congressman Wexler foot them the bill for a race, puts in a puppet for his place and pays off his staff with his money.

    Dems…you better practice what you preach otherwise you are in for a rude awakening.

    Wexler and cronies…the truth is coming

    It has to be Mark Alan Siegal that is doing this. The guy is dumber than a doornail but so is PBC “progressive” electeds. They need to remove him so he stops messing with the officials…he wants to be chairman of the state party so he thinks talking bad about Wexler is going to help.

    Scum remember you are the one who is helping the status quo keep up its work in Palm Beach.
    Keep electing the “fake” dems & then calling them out…you are a sad man.

    Between pushing Wexler, Deutch, Sachs, Slosberg and then leaking things about all of them…dumb dumb dumb

    The Media , the governments and candidates are making a circus out this.

    There are so many issues , domestic and foreigners that need our attention , why the democrats- as well as republican open their cards charges ? Remember those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stone

    Democrats love to inflate the facts,and the republicans that have been crying for transparency and it came to bite in the ass.

    Time to give to the candidate instead of the party .Shame on all of you !
