Overview of this Controversy

Date Originated: October of 2015
Categories: Marco Rubio
Senator Marco Rubio appears to have broken Senate ethics rules after he solicited campaign donations on Federal property. Mr. Rubio was being interviewed by Fox News' Neil Cavuto from the Russell Senate Office Building when he directly appealed for his supporters to go to his campaign website and donate funds to his campaign. This direct appeal is in violation of Senate ethics rules that prohibit any member from "receiv[ing] or solicit[ing] campaign contributions in any federal building."
