It’s not the Chivas or the huge amounts of cocaine that Hunter S. Thompson did each day that gets me. I’m still stunned that he ate as much as he did and yet still lived to be 67.
I mean, FETTUCINE ALFREDO IN A HOT TUB.
Senator Marco Rubio has provided generous details about his family, expressing time and again during his successful 2009 U.S. senate campaign that he was proud of his parents’ efforts to build a better future for their four children in this country.
But there is one family episode that the Senator does not want to talk about. Univision Investiga has learned that in 1987, Rubio’s older sister Barbara was caught up in the year’s most significant antinarcotics operation in South Florida.
According to public records, federal prosecutors in Miami ordered the seizure of the home where Barbara Rubio lived with her husband Orlando Cicilia. Prosecutors suspected the home was being used for activities that violated drug laws. Another property owned by the couple, located in what today is an office building, was also subject to seizure for the same reason.

It seems bad form for a senator’s spokesperson to lash out by sending a letter to the CEO of Univision, ostensibly to quash it.
Hat tip to Felix Salmon for the story and the fact that Univision keeps an English-language Tumblr.
