Again, he paid for this and other of his personal charges. What is the problem here?!

Then, vote for Marco Rubio and stop blithering on the blogs about how 'questionable' he is. Otherwise, 'pony up' and pay up!

Sure, when it's not YOUR money, it's easy to be 'courteus' and 'generous.'

^^^Your arguments do not make any sense. If Mrs. Rubio had her own Party credit card, then why would her husband use his cc to pay for her plane tickets?^^^ And who made you privileged to this little "fact?"

OMG! Stop him at once before he jets off to Geneva and access his secret Swiss Bank account - Idiot! It's not like they found thousands of dollars packed in his freezer like a former Democrat Congressman from Louisiana. Or they caught him trying to sell political offices to the highest bidder like a former Democrat Illinois Governor! Get a grip and put things into perspective!

Sure, sure, sure...Keep thinking that. I'll raise my glass to you on our victory party in November. Go Rubio!

Marco further complicates things when he said -"My wife was the First Lady of the Florida House of Representatives and it is absolutely appropriate for her to accompany me to official events and party functions" - Yes, of coarse it is, but on your own dime, not the public or RPOF's. This little whopper caused the press the publish how much he made in a single year as Speaker and as a land use attorney in 2007. $414,000. Naturally, this disclosure causes people as well as current and potential donors to ask? "You made this much money in a single year and you couldn't pick up the tab for your own wife?" And now, to bring it all home, the Herald discloses that Marco actually double billed RPOF for 8 flights he took while serving as Speaker, totaling $3,000. Embarrassing him and forcing him to reimburse them immediately. Remember, its not the questions that should make you nervous, its how you answer them.

No public official should ever have a Party credit card, no one! It simply invites these kinds of incidents and it blurs the lines of impropriety. But, if they do while they hold public office, then the general public does have the right to scrutinize their actions because the person accessing a private organization's funds is a public official. Fighting the issue will only create more of what you're trying to avoid - a media circus. Marco opened a "pandora's box" on Wednesday night when he made public a letter to Sen. Thrasher urging him not to release credit card records. "I have always agreed with your position that these issues are internal party matters which must be decided by the Republican Party of Florida, and not in the court of public opinion through selective information leaked to the media. As you know, I have maintained that I would not unilaterally disclose my personal American Express statements. I made this decision out of respect for any internal review process a new chairman might initiate, and to avoid creating a media circus that at best would be a distraction, and at worst could actually hurt our Party." Big mistake. Now, ALL Republican Party elected officials are under the gun to release their credit card statements and/or explain their relationship with the RPOF. Much to the delight of the state Democrats who pride themselves on not issuing any credit cards to their public officials. Tough week for Marco but he'll recover, as long as everybody else cooperates and makes their cc statements public. Otherwise, it will create an aura in people's minds that a 'culture of curruption' not only exists in Tellahassee but Marco contributed to it. Remember, it's not the questions that should make you nervous, its how you answer them.

Yea, he was too "decent." That's the real reason Mel left the Senate. If you believe that then you'll also believe that if Juanes "tapped" his shoes 3 times, the "power of music" will make all the bad people in the world go away - Idiot!

The former Mayor's comments are absolutely correct but 2 weeks too late. Mr. Ferre should remain in retirement and not risk losing the stature that someone of his caliber built years ago. Yes, he was defeated but he accepted defeat greacefully and has earned the title of elder statesman of local Miami politics. Compared to Suarez and Carollo, Ferre is the "sage" of Miami. There is no need to tarnish that image now. "Ambiton sometimes supercedes intelligence."

Senator LeMieux's suggestion that Congressman Wilson should be censured for his outburst at President Obama is as outrageous as the Congressman's own actions during Wednesday night's speech. Yes, Wilson's outburst lacked decorum, lacked respect and was completely inappropriate but he did apologize immediately to the President and his fellow colleagues ad nauseam on BOTH sides of the aisle. Let's put things into perspective here. The new Junior Senator from Florida appears to be only too willing to cower under the weight of competing political pressures. I wonder what would a future Senator Crist do under the same circumstances?

Dude, yu've got to read the WHOLE article. The aide's name was John Goetchius.

I'm not a fan of President Obama but I feel that if we Republicans criticize EVERYTHING the President does, it will come across as petty and even racist, in the long run. Remember, we have learn to pick our battles. Let the man have his say to the kids then question them when they get home. If he said something you found objectionable, set your kids straight, THEN criticize him. But, if the President just says to them: "stay in school and challange yourselves, keep away from drugs and respect your teachers and parents," we managed to create an uproar over nothing and managed to shoot ourselves in the foot - AGAIN!"

Good! Get ready to stand in line for your healthcare - "until suppplies last." Then you can come back next year, if you're still breathing and have another "crack" at it. Think of it as "American Idol" but for your health. Only with more dire consequences.

Mr. LeMieux may well be a very competent and loyal aide to Crist, but this appointment by the Governor marks the beginning of the end for Crist's race for the Senate. Crist needed to appoint someone who has the "gravitas" or high degree of respect and influence from years of experience working with both political parties. Crist's appointment of LeMieux, smells like a backroom deal, good ole' boy cronyism with a strong after taste of corruption and political payback for "services rendered." The Governor had an chance to shine but instead, he squandered this very important opportunity. This choice will only anger the conservative base even more than it is now and give much needed ammunition to the Democrats at a time when the Republican brand needs a much-needed boost. It is a grave mistake for the Governor to appoint his former campaign chief and former chief of staff to such a prestigious post as the United States Senate. No offense to Mr. LeMieux, personaly, it's just the reality of the matter. Remember what Joseph "Joe" Kennedy always said: "It's Not What You Are That Counts, It's What People Think You Are That Counts." The above quote may be unfair but we all know its true. Let's Go Marco!
