National Journal’s Beth Reinhard ain’t buying Marco Rubio’s story

Though Marco Rubio tried to put to rest the issue of his using a Florida Republican party credit card for personal expenses, National Journal isn’t buying his claim that the matter was “totally resolved years ago.”

“Not so. Even putting aside the obvious — why would such a savvy politician continually use a state party credit card for non-party business, requiring him to reimburse the credit card company after the bill had been paid? — questions remain about the more than $100,00 in charges from Nov. 2006 to Nov. 2008.”

In addition to Reinhard’s column, check out the story I wrote along a similar line, “Marco Rubio is giving the ol’ banana-in-the-tailpipe excuse again.”
