From the Department of You Can Make This Up: Miami Lobbyists Marco Rubio and David Rivera are holding a fundraiser together today in Washington, DC.
Last week, it was reported that Rubio and his self proclaimed “disciple” David Rivera purchased a house together and then defaulted on the payments, allowing the property to fall into foreclosure.
The pair of ethically challenged Republican politicians have now unwittingly opened up a can of worms when their embarrassing financial tactics were made public.
Some Questions That Need To Be Answered:
Did Rubio and Rivera willfully withhold mortgage payments that were owed based on their mortgage contract?
Did this tactic of withholding payments allow them to renegotiate or offer the house as a short sale?
In either case did they have to disclose their income and assets? If so, what are they?
What did their stalling and negotiating tactics cost the government in lost property values or tax write-off for themselves or the banks?
And is this whole mess just another example of Marco Rubio getting another sweetheart mortgage deal from his political allies?
