Marco Rubio: 'No' to credit card statements release
Abel Harding on September 24, 2010 at the Jacksonville Times-Union reports:

When Marco Rubio sat down with the Times-Union editorial board yesterday, we asked questions about his Republican Party of Florida credit card statements that have been the subject of much speculation.

Earlier that morning, the Tampa Tribune had reported on allegations by a former Rubio supporter that the American Express card had been used to purchase kitchen flooring for Rubio's home. The Tribune also said it had obtained a copy of an e-mail where Rubio acknowledged that he had copies of the credit card statements.

The Republican Party has released copies of credit card statements during the Jim Greer era. It has not released copies of statements prior to Greer's tenure, which was when Rubio was speaker.

Here's a shortened version of our exchange on the subject of his party credit card:

Q: "I'd like a yes or no answer. Did you ever use your Republican Party of Florida credit card to purchase flooring for your home?"

A: "Look, I've already addressed these credit card questions. The bills came to my home and I always wrote a check for personal expenses."

Q: "But did you ever use the card to purchase flooring for your home?"

A: "If there was an accident, any time there was something on there that was personal, I promptly paid out of my own pocket."

Q: "A Florida newspaper has reported that it has obtained a copy of an e-mail from you where you acknowledge possession of four years worth of credit card statements? Why not release the copies and end the discussion?"

A: "Those credit card statements are an internal party matter. I'm not going to release them."

3. Why won't the AG investigate?
He lost to Rick Scott? Crist knows, and likely all of them are guilty as sin.
