Rubio proves he has something to hide
By Chris Ingram
The Florida Times-Union has a portion of the paper’s editorial board interview with Marco Rubio on its website. The interview was conducted yesterday.
You be the judge and decide for yourself. Is this man telling the truth? Or does he have something to hide? If you think he can’t be trusted with someone else’s credit card, how can he be trusted to “do right” in the U.S. Senate?
Here’s the exchange with the Times Union:
Q: “I’d like a yes or no answer. Did you ever use your Republican Party of Florida credit card to purchase flooring for your home?”
A: “Look, I’ve already addressed these credit card questions. The bills came to my home and I always wrote a check for personal expenses.”
Q: “But did you ever use the card to purchase flooring for your home?”
A: “If there was an accident, any time there was something on there that was personal, I promptly paid out of my own pocket.”
Q: “A Florida newspaper has reported that it has obtained a copy of an e-mail from you where you acknowledge possession of four years worth of credit card statements? Why not release the copies and end the discussion?”
A: “Those credit card statements are an internal party matter. I’m not going to release them.”
