With Friends Like These

Freshman Rep. David Rivera (R-FL) and his questionable campaign finances must be pretty serious if it’s enough to make members of the GOP leadership nervous.

Days after snubbing embattled Rep. David Rivera (R-FL) on a visit to Florida, Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) told reporters on Monday that he was keeping an eye on reports of a brewing scandal surrounding the freshman Republican.

“There are ongoing investigations in Florida involving Congressman Rivera and we are respectful of those investigations,” Cantor said in a briefing with reporters. “I’m obviously very concerned about the reports surrounding those investigations, but we’ll wait to see the result of them.”

Kinda makes you wonder what Mr. Cantor knows that we don’t, doesn’t it?
