Crist Calls Rubio Out on Car Insurance

March 9th, 2010 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist had tough words for his US Senate opponent today. Crist is calling into question why the former House Speaker had the Republican Party pay for his car insurance when his minivan was damaged at a political event. He is also wondering if the IRS should be looking into the spending.

“The issue is whether or not the people can trust the speaker to spend their money wisely. I mean, clearly, they can’t, Crist said. I mean, who goes to a Republican party event, says they get their minivan dinged up, and then they have the party pay for their insurance. Doesn’t everybody carry insurance? You know, whether it was Breyman Motors or the Speaker himself, why does he have the party pay for his insurance? They don’t pay for mine.”

Reporter: Should Rubio have reported this stuff on his personal income taxes?

“Look, I’m not a tax lawyer so I’ll leave that to others to decide, but it strikes me as odd, he said. You know he says he repaid $16,000, then another $3,000 for the flights. You know, I don’t understand, number one, how you pay for that when you say your net worth is only eight grand, and where you’re getting the money to do it, number two. And if you had that money that was for your personal benefit, then I think the IRS would want to know about that.”

New polls show the Governor falling further behind among GOP primary voters.
