Stop lying about my record, and I’ll stop telling the truth about yours
By Chris Ingram
In an attempt to obfuscate the issue surrounding his improper use of RPOF credit cards for personal gain, Marco Rubio’s campaign has engaged in a smear tactic by suggesting my motivations in exposing him were for selfish reasons. Specifically, they have falsely suggested I shared this information because the Rubio campaign did not hire me for political campaign consulting services.
Rubio knows this is a flat out lie. He and I never discussed my employment with the campaign. My offer for service was limited to an assessment of his campaign’s communications/press team and was offered “gratis.” While Rubio never took me up on the offer, we continued talking for several months thereafter.
In an effort to “clear the air” I offer to take a professionally administered lie detector test and will answer any questions Rubio would like to ask me about this matter. Rubio can submit as many questions as he would like. I will not request they be vetted or approved by me in any way. Furthermore, I authorize the results to be released to the media and anyone else who asks for them.
This offer is contingent upon one thing.
Rubio must answer one simple question while attached to a lie detector machine and the results must similarly be made public.
The question is: did you charge improvements for your kitchen floor renovation to your Republican Party of Florida American Express card?
How much you want to bet Mr. Rubio doesn’t take me up on the offer?
