And to think, I used to respect Joe Trippi. Now he's behind shit like this:
Jeff Greene, the eccentric billionaire running for Senate in Florida, has released a new ad calling for an investigation of his opponent in the Democratic Primary, Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-FL), over the earmarks the Congressman sought for a developer now facing fraud charges. The ad isn't targeted at voters, however. It's up in the DC market, making the case for Congress to look into the matter.
Meanwhile, the GOP's golden boy, Marco Rubio, is a deadbeat.
The bank started foreclosure proceedings for a home that Rubio and Rivera, both Miami Republicans, lived in when they traveled to Tallahassee as state lawmakers.
They bought the 1,200-square-foot house for $135,000 in 2005. They received an adjustable rate mortgage that allowed them to make interest-only payments until April 1, 2010.
Burgos said Rubio and Rivera began withholding payments in February because of a dispute about how the payments would be calculated after the interest-only period ended. He said that issue has been resolved.
Court documents show Rubio and Rivera owe the bank $138,394 with interest and late charges.
The Rubio campaign insists the issue has been resolved. Turns out, it was resolved ONLY after the media started calling around.
Florida Senate candidate Marco Rubio is facing foreclosure on a home he jointly owns in Tallahassee, according to court documents obtained by POLITICO, though his campaign insists the issue has been resolved.
The lawsuit, filed by Deutsche Bank in Leon County this week, lists Rubio and U.S. House candidate David Rivera as co-owners.
A Rubio campaign spokesman said the issue had been resolved after the two co-owners wrote a check for $9,524 Thursday, one day after POLITICO originally inquired about the suit.
