Rubio Helped Ex-Con Get Real Estate License

“When Marco Rubio was majority whip of the Florida House of Representatives, he used his official position to urge state regulators to grant a real estate license to his brother-in-law, a convicted cocaine trafficker who had been released from prison 20 months earlier,” according to records obtained by the Washington Post.

“Rubio has avoided discussing Cicilia’s case in detail and has declined to answer questions about his relationship with his brother-in-law… Rubio also declined to say whether he or his family received financial assistance from Cicilia, who was convicted in a high-profile 1989 trial of distributing $15 million worth of cocaine. The federal government seized Cicilia’s home; the money has never been found.”
