    Various media sites are reporting Marco Rubio's arrest in the 90s in a gay-cruising park in Miami. Apparently teenage prostitutes were known to pick up customers there. Rubio, 18 at the time, was found by police at night, after the park was closed, in a parked car with two other men. One of the men in the car with Rubio later started a gay porn site in Miami where teenage prostitutes would perform sex acts on cam.
    The other men in the car at the time say they don't remember why they were there or what they were doing.
    The details in the arrest record seem to have disappeared, mysteriously, in the last few years.

    This story was obliquely reported in the Washington Post, which declined to give an actual reason for the arrest.
    Conservative media is all over it.. motivated by their efforts to take down Rubio's threat to Donald Trump?

    I'm not a Rubio fan, but I got to say this. Teenagers experiment and to hold his over Rubio's head disgusts me. This is the kind of dirt Trump would use to strengthen his stature in the polls. Politics at it's worst.

    I am not a fan of Rubio's politics but think he is hot. If he is bi and was single, I'm game.

    Are we talking about the same Marco Rubio?

    This Marco Rubio?
    http://www.hrc.org/2016RepublicanFacts/marco-rubio
    Rubio on the Issues

    • Marriage Equality: Opposed
    • Protecting LGBT Americans from Discrimination: Opposed
    • Protecting President Obama’s Executive Orders: Opposed
    • Ban Harmful “Conversion Therapy” :Opposed
    • LGBT Adoption: Opposed
    • Anti-Bullying: TBD


    Hold it over his head you question? His own stance is what holds his nuts over that fire.

    Meanwhile, I have an innocent enough question: Was Marco Rubio selling his penis? Or was Marco Rubio buying penis?

    We should palatably note, in all fairness to teenage inquisitiveness, that Rubio might have been merely penis sampling. Better?

    It wouldn't be to help Trump, it would likely be to help Jeb! Bush. Truly conservative media don't really push stories like that, but donors & campaigns do. I have heard similar rumors, and he is "very close" to billionaire Braman, who absolved all of his debt after uni.

    Either way, he spent his entire Senate career pushing amnesty for 45 million illegals, doubling immigration and massively expanding H1B visas - contrary to what he campaigned for in FL. He is dangerous to American jobs & demographics.

    I would normally tend to agree with you on this issue, and do to some extent but the subject goes much much deeper than cutthroat primary candidates. Rubio is a particularly opportunistic self loathing closet gay homophobe. He has promised to stack the Supreme Court with justices pledged to overturn the federal gay marriage equality decision. Personal life should remain private but hypocrites need exposure.

    He is a disgusting opportunistic weasel.......even more than the pandering others

    I honestly don't care if Sen. Rubio was a hustler or patron of the hustlers (it seems unlikely that an 18 year old would be paying another 18 year old for sex). Frankly, to expect candidates for office to have zero defects is simply unrealistic. We all have human weaknesses and we all make bad decisions at some point in our lives. If he was turning tricks when he was 18, so what, I don't care. It does not mean that he can't be a good public servant now.

    That being said, what does bother me is his self-righteous, sanctimonious stance today. If this story is true it puts him squarely into the category of yet another hypocrite proclaiming moral superiority while condemning others and who actively tries to hurt the LGBT community to either camouflage his own past, or atone his self-perceived guilt. It brings to mind John 8:7...He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

    Not to cast a stone, I readily acknowledge that he might not have been buying or selling penis. Might not even have been there tricking. He might simply have been hanging out, smoking a joint, whatever. Or he might have been there recruiting penis for his porn producing friend.

    Well, if I understand this, that he was there is not a fake. That he was arrested there is not a fake (though records have been destroyed). What he was doing there is the speculation based upon the character of the place.

    Trump has not conducted a campaign that fights in a a dirty manner behind the scenes. If anything, even if one does not agree with what he says, all of his attacks have been public against other candidates.

    This tactic is a RINO tactic coming from someone below Rubio in the polls. Either way, Rubio is a disaster with immigration and would fundamentally transform this country more than Obama ever could (i.e. amnesty).

    If Rubio manages to win the republican nomination, he could easily attract large numbers of both Hispanics and Generation Xers and put chances of a democratic win in serious jeopardy. I don't hate Rubio but I don't like his pandering to all the narrow minded bible thumping screwballs.

    I don't care what he did when he was 18.. It could also be that the records were destroyed because they were expunged after a period of time due to his age.. What concerns me most is his record now.. He would take gay rights back by decades if he could and that should be enough to scare us all.. The fact of the matter is that most people don't care if gays have equal rights - it doesn't affect them.. those that make it a major part of their policies have to make you question what they're hiding from.. Not to mention that he has the 'gay' face.

    I found the story on a Drudge link about Phyllis Schlaffley criticizing his opportunistic pandering. Drudge is a declared big Trump supporter. The link has since been scrubbed from Drudge overnight but I recall the author and found his website. To be clear it was not a Drudge link to Madsen's report but from another story on Drudge and the link quickly removed. I was really surprised not to see it on headlines everywhere when I woke today.

    Was it gently leaked and then killed as a show of loyalty to a very compromised candidate....the establishments favorite kind?
    President Obama was hounded with similar accusations in the run up to his election. A former "aquaintence" from his gay party days gave a major well attended press conference at the national press club on that subject and was promptly arrested by Bidens brother who was an official from Delaware who specifically attended the speech in DC to arrest him from the stage during Q & A for traffic warrants several years old. Its been suggested that that was what secured the VP position for Joe Biden.

    From investigative muckraker Wayne Madsen on Rubio:
    http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/articles/20160129

    From historian Webster Tarpley about the post speech political prisoner Larry Sinclair:
    http://www.rense.com/general82/pris.htm

    Both the old story and the new one, to me, demonstrate a willingness to very briefly expose campaign killers in public and then make them disappear completely, placing the candidate in a permanently submissive position to power.

    Trump isn't trying to take him down, its the media thats all over it so maybe you should have read this a little more carefully, thats why things get misinterpreted in the first place and damages reputations. Trump has been attacking Bush and Hillary because there is a lot of very damaging information about their activities within the government which needs to have light shed on it.
    I may not agree with everything that Trump says or does but he has the countries interests at heart and he is learning fast considering he is a business man rather than a politician. With him its what you see is what you get rather than having an agenda.

    Good, valid pointsicon_exclaim.gif I would much rather have Trump in the White House than corrupt, silver spooned establishment opportunists like Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton "the Mary Queen of Goldman Sachs".

    Just watched him oppose gay marriage during the debate. I hope this blows up his campaign.

    Trump has an agenda all right: Self-aggrandizing his own megalomaniac ass.

    Yeah, but if he were a Democrat, he probably wouldn't be an anti-gay hypocrite - speaking of which...

    Were any closet gay Dems in recent history actively campaigning against gay rights? Nope.
