Making a mockery of Rubio



Remember that tale in the St. Petersburg Times about the city of Miami being exempt from a larger tax cut? Well, the $23-million story hasn't gone away. Today, Miami New Times takes a look at the "morass" and how it came to happen.

The aggressively-toned story places blame, in part, on House Speaker Marco Rubio and includes an unflattering photo illustration of him. The Miami Republican did, however, say that the exemption was a mistake and insisted he would work to fix the problem. The New Times article was written by former SPT reporter Tamara Lush.
