    Billionaire Casino Magnate Sheldon Aldelson's Israeli Paper Is Obsessed With Marco Rubio

    —By Sam Brodey

    | Wed Apr. 15, 2015 6:02 PM EDT

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who announced his campaign on Monday, already has one billionaire backer—Norman Braman, a Miami car dealer. But Rubio also seems to have impressed Adelson himself.


    Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies, also known as Crossroads GPS, is a right-wing political group created in June 2010 by GOP political operatives and "advised" by Karl Rove and former Republican National Committee chairman Ed Gillespie to support Republican political candidates. It is often described as a "dark money" group because it is organized as a 501(c)(4) nonprofit and does not disclose its donors, despite spending millions to influence political campaigns

    For those who do not know who Norman Braman, he is a Zionist billionaire.

    Rubio is a fucking thief who used his business credit card for thousands of dollars worth of personal purchases: Records show Marco Rubio spent thousands with GOP credit card Tampa Bay Times

    Only in politics would he be allowed to do shit like that and then get appointed to a higher level position. Of course, Florida is the quintissential banana republic where they routinely elect the fox to guard the henhouse (see Rick Scott).

    Weird post. If it was a GOP card how was he stealing? Democrats all fund their own expenses? I call bull.

    Rubio; "Everybody's second choice" is what I'm hearing. As the "first choices" begin to falter due to gaffes or money drying up, Rubio could propel ahead.

    He's an empty suit that has accomplished nothing as a Senator. More good news for Hillary.

    I said the same thing about this other Senator who ran against a very experience and well known politician.

    You're going to find this hard to believe, but that guy won.

    And we've spent 8 years hearing what a mistake his being elected supposedly was. Wouldn't it be hilarious if the GOP standard bearer had the same lack of a record?
