Sen. Marco Rubio wants ethics complaint dismissed



U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio has asked the Florida Commission on Ethics to close a March 2010 complaint that he misused Republican and campaign money "to subsidize his lifestyle," an issue that has been lingering beneath his political ambition. "This complaint was filed for political reasons, and those who support the direction this president is taking our country will undoubtedly attempt to exploit it for political reasons," Rubio wrote in a letter Friday, which was accompanied by his affidavit. "I'm not going to let them do that."
