Today, Marco Rubio received the endorsement from a Republican in hot water over abusing taxpayer dollars: Rep. Mia Love.
No surprise that Love supports Rubio: Marco Rubio has recently been under fire for his use of freely using a Republican Party of Florida credit card for personal expenses while he was Speaker of the House, and for continuing to collect a taxpayer-funded paycheck while skipping votes and hearings. In the same vein, Rep. Love tried to bill taxpayers to finance her travels from Salt Lake City to Washington for a night of dinner and hobnobbing.
“Just like Marco Rubio, Mia Love has a long history of shady financial dealings while trying to milk all of the perks from serving in government as she can get. But aside from their terrible bookkeeping skills, Rubio and Love are both peddling a tired Republican playbook that champions the same failed GOP policies. Both are clearly in it for themselves, and both consistently refuse to do the right thing to help the American people – unless, of course, perks are included.” – Christina Freundlich, DNC spokeswoman
