Winner and loser of the week in Fla politics



Winner of the week

Marco Rubio. Florida's junior senator may despise the Affordable Care Act, but he signed his family up for Obamacare through the D.C. health exchange, taking advantage of a federal subsidy offered to lawmakers and their staff, worth up to $11,000 a year for his family.

Loser of the week

Adam Hollingsworth. Turns out Rick Scott's chief of staff lied on his resume to his past employer — and, at best, submitted misleading biographical information in a state application. If the Dick Cheneyesque rumors of Hollingsworth being interested in becoming Scott's running mate were true, that idea is certainly out the window now.
