Reports: Feds launch probe into Florida GOP By Jordan Fabian - 04/21/10 08:19 AM ET
The FBI and IRS have launched a criminal investigation into the Republican Party of Florida's issuing of credit cards to elected officials and staff, according to media reports.
The probe could affect the tumultuous Florida Republican Senate primary. An IRS inquiry is probing the tax returns of campaign front-runner Marco Rubio, former state party chairman Jim Greer, a close ally of Rubio's opponent Gov. Charlie Crist and another state GOP official.
The statements are being examined to see if the men used party credit cards improperly for personal use.
Former Florida House Speaker Ray Sansom is said to be the original target of the probe, which is being investigated separately. He allegedly included $6 million in the state budget for an airline hangar for a friend of a campaign donor.
Greer resigned in January after coming under pressure for overspending.
Rubio's campaign has denied that the candidate engaged in wrongdoing.
Here is more from the St. Petersburg Times:

Absolutely, my point exactly. Let the light shine on the truth.
Won't work. It's a negative. Rubio has to use a positive to rise above it.
Use their OWN rules against them. "Share" all the information, both left and right. Investigate BOTH parties in the name of "Transparency" and "Equality", or "Justice."
You know the left wouldn't want that. They'd be on the defensive if the voters wanted THEM to open THEIR books as well. If Rubio can turn this around so the voters want to see ALL the books, the left would most certainly have to back off. (Imagine what their books must look like!)

The rats are good at picking nits, but woodmills are in their own eyes.

My sense is people are so angry with this BS that the dems will lose even more indies if they persist with this crap.
The reality is that we’ve seen their playbook tactics repeated over and over again. Their play book is not really that deep, it’s just that otherwise good people have permitted them to get away with it for too loong. Up to now, though, arguments against the left were more or less hypothetical. For example, if you vote socialist you’ll lose personal rights and have to pay more taxes. Now, the argument has transcended the hypothtical. Most thinking people understand the hugh costs associated with Onadacare and Tax and Trade.
Marxists cannot hide anymore.
Obama can’t allow a Hispanic GOP Senator. Nope! Rubio must be destroyed. That is the agenda here. They must stick to the narrative that the GOP is the party of racist, white men.
Timing....what a wonderful thing....
Of course. The Feds were nowhere to be found when prepaid Visa cards were being used (with fictitious names) to fund Obamas campaign.”
Federal election papers were filed by NObama’s staff showing that money coming from GAZA was posted as “GA”.....leading people to believe it was the state of Georgia, USA.
Everything about NObama is a fraud, IMO.
Obama rescuing his buddy Crist?”
Both of them are showing their true colors.
Shit like this is what the traitors voted for back in november 2006 and 2008.
Meanwhile the Republicans and Conservatives stand around shaking their heads and saying, “Wait until November”, well, time November gets here what is left won’t be worth having.
Also, if the Democrats are not sure that they can’t hold on to their power, a/k/a steal the election,there is not going to be an election.
BINGO! There will NEVER be an honest election as long as the Chicago thugs are at the helm.
