Marco Rubio responds to ethics complaint about campaign financing…by asking for a campaign donation

in Statewide by

Just caught this press release from the Marco Rubio campaign in response to an ethics complaint being filed against him:’s no surprise that Democrats are now targeting Marco with the first of many political stunts to distract voters’ attention from their flawed ObamaCare plan and the massive, out-of-control spending that has taken place on their watch.

The smears and attacks against Marco get more ridiculous each day. Today’s stunt is to enlist a maxed out Hillary Clinton supporter to file a frivolous complaint against Marco. It’s so frivolous that this individual wasn’t even willing to sign it.

Sadly, these stunts actually cost you, the taxpayer, money because government bureaucrats actually have to waste time on them. But worse, this illustrates the problem with politics today. When people can’t defend their indefensible big government policies, they turn to the same old politics-as-usual playbook of misleading, negative and false personal attacks.

Unfortunately for all our opponents – from Charlie Crist down to big government Democrats like President Obama and Congressman Kendrick Meek – they are running up against a movement that sees through them and demands a new conservative renewal in America. They are running up against voters like you who are tired of their policies, tired of their politics, and have a chance to vote for something better in this election.

Marco has the truth on his side and the conservative credentials to back it up. But he needs your help to get the word out and fight the smears.

That’s all well and good, but does Rubio really have to ask for money when playing defense against a complaint involving campaign finance?

Please donate today – $25, $100 or any amount you can give will go a long towards helping Marco fight the smears, so he can go to Washington and stand up to the big spending, big government liberals in control today.
