FLORIDA ELECTIONS 2010: Marco Rubio’s AMEX Expenses Were for Promoting the Republican Party and Raised $12 Million

Posted by FactReal on February 26, 2010

Marco Rubio, candidate for the U.S. Senate, explains that the American Express charges were incurred while promoting the Republican Party.
– Marco Rubio: The credit card charges of nearly $110,000 in charges over 25 months were for “legitimate travel to promote the Republican Party of Florida, help Republican candidates and participate in county party fundraisers around the state.”

– “If you can raise $12 million on $110,000, we all should be that good,” said Sharon Day, the state party’s national committeewoman.

– “It’s very convenient that the only one that gets released (is Rubio’s),” Sharon Day said. “This is silly. They want to talk about $110,000 in 25 months when Delmar [Greer’s executive director] spent $130,000 in one month.”

– “Greer resigned from the party under pressure after reports of lavish spending on jet planes and extravagant meals and entertaining. Greer’s executive director, Delmar Johnson, was given a secret contract that pumped his compensation up to $408,000.”
