Scandal Alert! Libertarian-leaning Senator largest recipient of libertarian campaign donations
Rubio's secret ties to the Libertarian Party exposed
From Eric Dondero:
The Florida Independent breaks a stunning story on Florida Senator Marco Rubio. Seems the libertarian-leaning Republican received major campaign contributions from 1980 Libertarian Party vice-presidential candidate David Koch. Moreover, Rubio received significant funding for his campaign from the libertarian group Club for Growth.
From the Florida Independent, "Rubio the No. 1 recipient of Koch money in 2010 Senate races":
Many of Rubio’s other campaign donors have connections to the Koch brothers. Some are more closely affiliated with the Kochs than others, but all those with ties are plugged into the national network of business leaders and anti-tax and anti-regulation advocates
Howie Rich; the mysterious man behind the curtain?
The largest single contributor to Rubio’s campaign by far was the economic libertarian organization Club for Growth, whose members gave $346,450. Club for Growth has had ties to the Kochs since its founding in 1999. One of the group’s directors, Howard Rich, is also a director of the Cato Institute, a think tank that Charles Koch provided the initial funding for and on whose board of directors David Koch now sits.
Revealed! Rubio tied to Tax-cutters
And yet another stunning revelation. Rubio's chief of staff helped formulate the Bush tax cuts in the early 2000s. Continuing:
Rubio’s connections with the vast Koch Industries web did not end with his election. The senator’s chief of staff, Cesar Conda, was once an aide to Dick Cheney and is said to be one of the architects of the Bush tax cuts. He is the former executive director of the Alexis de Tocqueville Institution, a libertarian think tank funded in part by Koch-run groups such as the Claude R. Lambe Charitable Foundation.
