As if we hadn't seen enough lies from Sarah Palin and Rick Perry, there is evidence (many recordings of Rubio saying his family left Cuba to escape Castro) to show Rubio has used a lie to help his political career:
"...Rubio has been wrongly saying for years that his family fled Cuba after Fidel Castro took power in 1959.
"The family narrative has helped fuel Rubio's political rise from Florida state legislator to budding national GOP star.
"The newspaper reviewed documents, including the naturalization papers of Rubio's parents, showing that the Rubio family arrived in the United States in May 1956 -- well before Castro overthrew the Cuban government and declared the island a socialist state in 1961."

RUBio is just another worthless sac of pus that conned the gullible electorate into putting him into office.

It would be such a help to voters if somebody would search out the truth of statements made during a campaign.
When did it start to be OK to tell any lie, anything at all that a candidate wants to say, if it is said during a political campaign?
Palin and Perry are still way out ahead of Rubio on outrageously misrepresenting their stories, but he did get off to a startling beginning with the exposure that his life story was faked.

The usual throngs of political idolaters are too bust groveling and publicly fellating their masters to even notice. It's so damn funny anymore.
