Dems spoof state GOP credit card scandal with ‘priceless’ video

by Dara Kam | February 26th, 2010

Capitalizing on the scandal erupting over the state GOP’s credit card spending, national Democrats released a video take-off of the MasterCard “Priceless” television campaign.

The spoof highlights some of the Republican Party of Florida-issued credit card charges now-U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio made when Florida House Speaker, including $1,000 in repairs to his family mini-van.

“Getting your personal bills paid for by the Republican Party of Florida like Marco Rubio: Priceless,” the Democratic National Committee video mocks.

The state GOP may get some unwanted mail as a result of the “Priceless” satire.

“Want your bills paid for by the Republican Party of Florida? Just send them in. 420 E. Jefferson Street, Tallahassee, Florida 32301,” it concludes.

The DNC ad targets Rubio at a time when the once-long-shot candidate’s popularity is soaring while his GOP primary opponent Gov. Charlie Crist’s is on the wane.

  4. Debra Says:

    Yet the Post fails to post Front Page online the video of the ACORN scandal and all the Dems ridiculous funding/actions at that time. Go ahead Dems, keep funding your illicit trysts and scandalous clandestine adventures! We’ll pick up a Macaroni Grill tab any day!

  5. Marie Says:

    Well, if we are looking into Marco Rubio’s charges let’s look at everyones, Dems and Repub. to compare. Bet the Dems are worst!!! They all do the same thing. Let’s look at Congress’s credit card charges too while we are at it. Let’s start with Pelosi. I would love to see her charges.

    Of course Debra, the Post will never post anything negative for the Dems. The Acorn scandal is huge but they won’t write about because they will get in trouble. Thank goodness for Fox News!

  6. Billy Says:

    Debra & Marie – way to post an argument with zero facts to back them up.

  8. bc Says:

    republicans are racists that cant stand the fact that a black man is running our country.
    =========================
    Racists are people who think Republicans care about the ethnic identification of a public servant.

  11. dlong Says:

    Just think how much taxpayer money he would spend as a Senator!?!?!?!?! I agree with all the above posts except Debra & Marie…Billy is right…no facts to back it up but only a bunch of BS by a couple of retarded people.

  12. AJLind Says:

    THIS HARD CORE REPUBLICAN FAMILY FROM MARTIN COUNTY *WILL* BE VOTING FOR RUBIO IN THE FALL!

    EVERYONE KNOWS THAT ‘CROOKED CRIST’ IS BEHIND THIS ISSUE AND HONESTLY, WHAT CRIST DOES NOT REALIZE, IS THAT IT MAKES ALL OF US CONSERVATIVES REALIZE THAT HE WILL STOOP LOWER THAN LOW TO TRY TO WIN THIS RACE.

    “Hi, I’m Charlie Crist and I think I’ll quit my job as a governor and swap jobs and be a senator instead…heck, I can use the taxpayers’ monies and run a great race…I think I might even run a dirty race and release confidential information in the process.”

    HEY, CHARLIE, WHERE *IS* YOUR WIFE THESE DAYS?

    YOU DID NOT EVEN SPEND YOUR FIRST ANNIVERSARY TOGETHER!

    WE ALL KNOW YOU ARE A HOMOSEXUAL AND WHAT MAKES IT SO BAD IS THAT YOU TRY TO HIDE IT…ARE YOU AFRAID OF REVEALING YOUR SEXUALITY?

    C’MON, CHARLIE, IT’S A NEW CENTURY AND A NEW AGE…

    COME OUT OF THE CLOSET AND STOP HIDING YOUR REAL SEXUAL NATURE AND STOP SHAMING G.L.A.D!

    OWN UP, CHARLIE CRIST! YOUR FAKE MARRIAGE WITH YOUR PSEUDO-WIFE NOWHERE IN SIGHT IS MORE OF A SHAM THAN ANYTHING RUBIO DOES! STOP PULLING A MARK FOLEY! OWN UP!

    The Post is truly a lame rag and the author of this article is too….

    Do you really think all of this Libtard propaganda is going to hurt Rubio???

    Marco Rubio… The next U.S. Senator from the state of Florida

  15. OBIWAN Says:

    Charlie Crist stole the GOP records for public release…and is now hugging up with VP Joe SMO Biden for an “independent” run as governor…

    NOW, let’s see the Florida Democratic Party credit card slips please, just to compare and contrast…

    wow, how much did you send to ACORM, the Black Panthers, Nation of Islam, PLO, Planned parenthood??

  16. LicensedToSteal Says:

    Some of you may believe this is a party issue, but it is not. Many of our politicians are corrupt or will eventuall be corrupted by special interest and that is a fact. Their number one concern is getting elected and relected. I would certain hope the people of Florida do not elect this person to the Senate. If you do, expect more personal charges on the Repub. party Mastercard.

  17. LicensedToSteal Says:

    I am certainly glad this is coming out now and not after the elections. That way the voters can make a better decision.

  18. truth Says:

    I wonder why the DNC didnt say the charges were approved by a staffer in the GOP. this is nothing more than food for the drones.

  19. truth Says:

    From the Herald, which makes the Post look like a joke.
    ——–
    Rubio’s campaign advisor, Todd Harris, explained some charges Thursday that were picked up by the party. A $765 charge at Apple’s online store was for a “hard drive to store political files.” Purchases at Winn Dixie for $53.49 and Farm Stores in Miami for $78.10 were for “soft drinks.” Two bills from Happy Wine in Miami were for “lunch,” though one of the charges is listed in a party report as “beverages.”

    Harris said a $368 car rental in Las Vegas in 2007 was to meet a donor. Asked for the name of the donor, Harris snapped: “I didn’t ask and it’s not your or anyone else’s business.”

    In a written statement to The Herald/Times on Wednesday, Rubio said the state party agreed to pay half of his insurance deductible to cover damage to his car at a political event in 2007. He said the party also signed off on a rental car in Miami for five weeks that cost $2,976.

    On Thursday, the campaign arranged for the Herald/Times to talk to Chip Case, a former party staffer who said he reviewed Rubio’s credit-card statements every month. Case said of the car rental: “I thought it was appropriate. It was the type of thing I think we would do for anyone in that situation

    Are there any articles about Kendrick Meek on this newspaper? Missing: Real reporters at the Post

  21. Huh?! Says:

    Ya gotta love it. The Post prints a story about a Republican and the whackos come out ot the woodwork. The mating call of the rabid right is “How DARE you actually print this story, even when it’s the truth?!” They didn’t even say they agreed with the Democrats and as far as I’m concerned the story makes the Democrats look a little silly. But the Post didn’t kiss the Republicans behinds so it’s off to war. I love the all caps bozos, you can almost feel the foam as the write rages on, spittle hitting the screen and keyboard. Thanks for a good laugh this afternoon!

  22. logical Says:

    ALL of you are dumb because you lay your loyalty down for political parties which Thomas Jefferson himself would be the end of our democracy and you can see it unfolding before our eyes. Republican or Democrat your stupid, stop voting for a party and vote for ideals, the party IS CORRUPT.

  23. truth Says:

    Huh?! in regards to post #21: the real joke is calling approved charges a “scandal” and the Dems actually being stupid enough to run with it.

  24. Steve in WPB Says:

    Any working person that votes for a Republican is like a chicken who votes for Colonel Sanders.

  25. Dems unleash second video targeting Rubio GOP party credit card scandal | Post on Politics Says:

    [...] 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. [...]
