1. Marco Rubio narrates attack ad against pal U. S. Rep. David Rivera
Another skeleton in Mr. Rubio's closet; this association is perhaps one of the most damaging to his political ambition.

Marco Rubio narrates attack ad against pal David Rivera, July 18, 2012

(Ad video at link)

Adam C. Smith at Tampa Bay's The Buzz reports:

July 18, 2012

Democratic congressional candidate Joe Garcia is using a most-unexpected narrator in a web ad bashing Republican Rep. David Rivera: The voice of Sen. Marco Rubio, a Rivera pal who has repeatedly said Rivera will have to answer questions about his finances that have made him a target of state and federal investigations. Rivera narrowly escaped state criminal charges stemming from his use of state House campaign funds and an investigation into a secret dog-track payment (background here). He faces a federal investigation as well.

A right-hand man for Rubio when he was in the House, Rivera is a close family friend of Rubio, who has stood by Rivera's side. He helped Rivera raise money but, in numerous interviews, has said Rivera will have to answer questions about his finances. Rivera, in turn, pushed out a public statement that said Garcia has his own "personal corruption issues."** Garcia's campaign said Rivera is simply lying about Garcia's alleged corruption. Indeed, there's no evidence that Garcia is under investigation, as Rivera claims, but there is ample proof that Rivera is.

These guys have worked in tandem for years.

Here is an excellent opportunity to vote out U. S. Rep. David Rivera, (R-Miami,FL), and replace him with Joe Garcia, a Democrat.

It is beyond time for the years of unchecked, hard right wing corruption in the state of Florida to come to an end.
