A clown, a crook, and a corrupt Congressman

Alex Snitker the Libertarian wasn’t invited to the debate, but he’s the only candidate not under a clowd of ethical controversy and the only candidate not beholden to special interests, corrupt labor unions, Karl Rove (or people like him), or the RPOF credit card scandal.

Live from Florida, the U.S. Senate debate

By Chris Ingram

How do you know when the three main Florida Senate candidates are lying?

That’s an easy one, their lips are moving.

Charlie talking about being honest. What a joke!

Marco talking about fiscal restraint and responsibility. Who is paying your Amex bill Marco?

Meek defending the stimulus. Hey Kendrick, we’re still in a recession.

Alex Snitker the Libertarian wasn’t invited to the debate, but he’s the only candidate not under a clowd of ethical controversy and the only candidate not beholden to special interests, corrupt labor unions, Karl Rove (or people like him), or the RPOF credit card scandal.

  1. I too am disappointed in the candidates. Charlie is so phoney and Rubio seems so dishonest and Meek is too liberal. I might look at the libertarian too.

  2. Chris, you don’t get it.
    Rubio is a candidate that we can all support. He brings strong independent support and is someone Florida can be proud of. This credit card scandal has been a Charlie tactic to save his bid and is not a legitimate issue. If you had some investigative talent you would expose it for what it is and find that no wrong doing was done.
    stop the hate. see through the hate.

    Brian,

    I have personal knowledge of the Rubio credit card matter. He has lied to me multiple times about what happened/how it happened. I believe Mr. Rubio has no concept of the truth.

    As for your slam at me about investigative reporting, if you paid attention you wouldn’t make such ignorant pronouncements.

  4. Marco Rubio is a shallow, overly rehearsed, ethically challenged, lawyerly career politician out to grease his own palms.

    Every issue that surfaces about Rubio suggests he doesn’t tell the truth.

    It amazes me how many god-fearing Christian Republicans who claim to let Jesus guide their lives are willing to overlook all of Rubio’s problems and put him on a pedestal. Hypocrites all of you.

    Where’s the outrage? We should demand better. This guy can’t control his use of someone else’s credit card, yet you think he’s going to solve the federal debt with reduced spending. I don’t think so.

    I am so turned off by all 3 of these men, I think I will vote for Alex Snitker the Libertarian candidate.

    Brian, I think this is a legitimate issue. All that Rubio would have to do is release all his credit card statements. I think there is something to hide because he has not released them and I will vote accordingly.

    Also, Rubio has not released his income tax returns. I have seen where he has released the first two pages, but that does not tell you anything other than the amount of money he made. I want to know the source of the money.

    On the Schedule E line he lists over 200,000. What is this from? Is he a partner, a shareholder of an S Corp, a landlord? Does he receive royalties from creative works or oil and gas wells? Did he use his property in Tallahassee as a rental?

    On his Schedule A line he lists over 67,000 in deductions. Once again what type of deductions? Does he pay out $60,000 per year in interest on his mortgage? Does he or his family have large medical bills? Does he make large charitable contributions? If so what charities does he support? It makes a difference to me is he supports planned parenthood or the Heritage Foundation.

    I will be more than happy to vote for Rubio if he would come clean. I have been around the block a few times. One thing I can say with all honesty. When a politician has to make a choice, he will always choose the option that has the least amount of repercussion. This makes me believe that whatever Rubio is try to hide will do him much more damage than simply releasing the information.

    I am voting for Alex Snitker. I got my absentee ballot today and will be voting this weekend. There are only a few days left if Rubio wants my vote.

  7. I would love for the blow hard, I mean investigative reporter, Chis Ingram to produce any of the stuff he has on Rubio in real factual visible fully disclosed authenticatible way for the world to see about what he claims to have on Rubio. As Chris Ingram identifies himself as a Republican it would only make sense for him to stand behind that supposed “oath” that all these Republicans take to not speak badly of a fellow Republican. Chris Ingram has turned into a real joke. If he could he would…he can’t so he won’t. It even seems realistic for all of us to understand that this blog has become so lame that his readership is sure to be falling off.

  8. Reply to “Lisa” (who also poses on here is Tim, Wally, Denny and Mike, though whose real name is probably Sam) and who always has brash statements and suggestions — none of which he/she can back up and always under the veil of a coward’s anonymous/fictitious posting.

    I know, all I am going to be left with is you and all of your multiple personalities here on the site.

    I have all the proof I need to know Rubio is not being honest.

    If he is so honest, why doesn’t he release his Amex records? People who are honest/telling the truth don’t run from it. They would in this case, want to prove me wrong and how right and honest they are.

  9. I was outside the Fox 13 studio in Tampa with Alex Snitker on Friday protesting his exclusion from the debate. All the dirt dug up and mud slinging by these guys about each other just proves to me all of them are dirty. Or if you don’t believe what they say about each other, just check out CREW’s (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington) Crooked Candidates report. http://www.citizensforethics.org/crookedcandidates2010
    If your a Florida voter read up on Alex Snitker (http://www.snitker2010.com/). Despite what the media (Not just Fox but all the networks down here.) say there are more then 3 people in Florida’s U.S. Senate race, learn them all and vote for who represents your values. Don’t sacrifice your principals on a party vote just because they may have a better chance to win. Our data shows us at at least 10%. There are hundreds of supporters who have been polled who were not able to choose the real grassroots candidate in this race because most polls only list the top 3 and “other”. Much different numbers when the poll includes all the people running. If everyone who claims ‘wasted vote’ actually voted for Alex Snitker, he’d get at least 33%.
