Florida Republicans Conduct Internal Investigation of Credit Cards

If you've heard anything about the credit-card scandal in Florida--involving the use of Florida GOP credit cards by party officials--then this is news: the Florida GOP is conducting its own internal investigation of the use of party credit cards, in addition to the federal investigation already underway.


Senate candidate Marco Rubio's use of his own credit card has gotten the most attention out of all of this, largely because Gov. Charlie Crist's campaign has talked about it so much. But an internal investigation could mean broader findings--and findings more likely to be leaked--than the  FBI's probe. Rubio has already paid back about $3,000 to the party for a double-billing error, it has been reported.

Fox broke the news of the Florida Republican Party investigation this morning.
