Things should start getting very interesting.....
Marco Rubio, Florida GOP Under Federal Investigation, Report Says
Quote :
The Internal Revenue Service has opened a "primary" investigation into the tax records of three former Florida GOP officials, including GOP Senate candidate Marco Rubio, the St. Petersburg Times and Miami Herald jointly report.

The investigation has not been publicly confirmed, and Rubio's campaign adviser told the Times that no federal investigators have contacted Rubio.

Nevertheless, the reported investigation puts new scrutiny on the former Florida House Speaker just as speculation mounts that Florida Gov. Charlie Crist will run for the Senate as an independent, leaving the GOP nomination for Rubio, who is far ahead in the polls.

The IRS is investigating expenses that Rubio and two other officials, ex-state party chairman Jim Greer and ex-party executive director Delmar Johnson, put on the American Express cards issued to them by the Republican Party of Florida, the newspapers report. Investigators are reportedly looking into whether Rubio and the others used their GOP credit cards for personal expenses without reporting or paying taxes on additional income.

This is terrific news. I predict that the Tea Party lunatics will make an embarrassing spectacle of themselves over this and damage their interests in the coming months...
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist likely to run as independent
Quote :

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist intends to announce Thursday that will run for the U.S. Senate as an independent, withdrawing from the state's Republican primary, in which he trailed badly in the polls.

Crist will launch his independent bid in his hometown, St. Petersburg, according to sources close to the governor.

His long-rumored break from the GOP will turn Florida's Senate race into a three-way scrum pitting Crist against Marco Rubio, who has become a favorite of conservative "tea party" activists, and the likely Democratic nominee, U.S. Rep. Kendrick B. Meek.
