President hopeful with his BFF and Roommate David Rivera. By Geniusofdespair

Marco Rubio and David Rivera's Tallahassee home is up for sale. They also shared a home for two years in Washington D.C.

Now, the three-bedroom property stands as a stubborn symbol of both a politically problematic friendship and lingering questions about Rubio’s personal finances, which dogged him on the campaign trail in 2010 and may do so again. The friendship has frayed in recent years, friends say, as the fortunes of Rubio, 43, and Rivera, 49, have diverged. Last week, they put the 1,228-square-foot house up for sale. The list price is $125,000 — $10,000 less than what the two men paid for it a decade ago.

But chances are the home won’t sell before April, when Rubio says he’ll decide whether to seek the presidency. Rubio’s critics are waiting to make hay of any revelations that may come of the federal investigation of Rivera and to point to their status as roommates during the years when Rivera allegedly engaged in illegal campaign activities.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.


Thanks for the reporting.

According to recent reports, Norman Braman is supporting Marco Rubio. Which is kind of reminiscent of when Braman backed a bunch of BCC unknown losing candidates in 2012.

Braman's money is better spent on Regalado (Raquel) to unseat Gimenez.

I was wondering why Rubio has been so vocal in his support of Israel, which is about the only thing I agree with him on, and that must be what has Braman so supportive of Rubio. The problem is, with Rubio, it's empty rhetoric. He is clueless unless given talking points.

Anti gay? Marco looks, talks and behaves totally gay.

Why his daughter?

I think the last Anon is saying that because he has a daughter he can't be gay. He's never heard the term 'beard' I guess.

If Braman is supporting Rubio, he should buy that house through a straw buyer ASAP.
