Porkus Rubio?

March 10th, 2010 by flanews

The fighting continues to rage in the US Senate campaign, with more finger pointing and even some name calling. Today Governor Charlie Crist took shots at former House Speaker Marco Rubio. Crist called Rubio on the carpet for securing more than 200 million state dollars for his district during his time as speaker accusing his opponent of pork-barrel spending.

Sounds like a Porkus Rubio to me. Thats a lot of pork and thats a lot of money and you know thats why its nice to be able to, when youre elected governor, to have a veto pen, said Crist.

Crist vetoed millions in spending earmarked for Rubios district. Crists attacks come as Rubio releases his first TV ad.
