|David Rivera - Marco Rubio's Best Friend|
I hope the Trump group or Bush got a photo of David Rivera and Marco Rubio at the Cleveland Republican debate. Rubio, the big spender of other people's money is probably out buying toothpaste with campaign dollars. The Miami Herald had a good article on how Marco Rubio misused PAC money and the Party Credit Card:
Records show he was strapped for cash throughout his time in the state House, even as he landed a $300,000-a-year job at a law firm with interests in Tallahassee. He left office in 2008 with a net worth of less than $8,400 and had more than $900,000 in debt, including two mortgages, a home-equity loan and a student loan.
In 2003 and 2004, before getting the RPOF card, Rubio controlled two well-funded political committees created to boost his bid for House speaker. Typically such committee funds go to helping other candidates, a way of currying favor and showing party loyalty.
But Rubio gave only $4,000 to candidates. The bulk of the $600,000 the committees raised went to office and administrative costs — costs that helped enhance Rubio’s stature. He spent nearly $90,000 on political consultants and $50,000 for credit card payments.
