The audacity of fraud - Wexler isn't really a FL resident

Apparently, Fox/O'Reilly had something on this, but it made it above the fold in the print version of the Palm Beach Post today, so the story must have enough traction that even the reliably Bolshevik PBP can't bury it. Wexler is of course a flaming moonbat, high profile Dem attack dog, and staunch supporter of the Messiah.

Acknowledging that accusations that he doesn't really live in Florida are raising "concerns" among his constituents, Democratic U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler said Tuesday that he will begin leasing an apartment in his congressional district rather than continue to claim residency at his in-laws' home near Delray Beach.

Wexler made the announcement on the same day that his two challengers produced records showing Wexler received property tax breaks by declaring his house in Potomac, Md., a "primary residence" from 1999 to 2002. He also signed a loan document with his wife in 2005 describing the house as "my/our principal residence."...

Being a hard left democrat, and a high profile one at that, I'm guessing he weathers this one out in November. The problem is that the Republican challenger has some heavy baggage of his own and isn't exactly Snow White.

Normally, one might consider perpetrating such a fraud on the voters in a district to be somewhat of an ethics problem. But this is the most ethical congress ever, so we know that can't be the case. Just rent an apartment, and 8 years of hoodwinking the voters will just be swept under the rug.

Ditching Wexler, even for a flakey republican, would be a major upset. In my circle of friends, many of whom live in Wexler's district as do I, there were quite a few snorts of derision over the nerve of this asshat. If there are further inconvenient revelations before Nov, it might be enough to get him booted. This one alone probably won't do it, but a few more could seal his fate now that there are actual challengers. In 2004/2006 he ran unopposed.
