Hot News From the New York Times: Rubio's Gotten Four Traffic Tickets (But His Wife Got 13!)
Undisclosed: Information Came from David Brock's Pro-Hillary PAC American Bridge
Update: NYT Denies, to Politico

Here's the oppo dump in the New York Times, which I don't suggest you read; I just want you to know that this is real. This happened.

Marco Rubio has had four traffic tickets, "over the years," as the New York Times says, which is... not so many. So the New York Times figures it can just add in his tally with his wife's.

Here's how they headline that:

Marco Rubio and His Wife Cited 17 Times for Traffic Infractions

This is not a joke. They really did that. Marco Rubio had four measly tickets "over the years" so they just added that to his wife's 13 to come up with a combined 17 traffic tickets between them.

Here's what they don't report: This silly, absurd story (and probably that ridiculous headline, too) was delivered to them hot from David Brock's oppo files and Free Beacon has the proof, and the New York Times "reporters" serving Courtier David won't comment on whether or not the story was given to them by a Brock.

SUV? Ed Morrissey notes the NYT claiming that Mrs. Rubio sideswiped another driver in an "SUV."

That SUV was the Ford F150 -- which is a truck. Period. Not an SUV.

But it seems like the NYT is trying to Otherize the Rubios.

Incidentally, a reporter on the story just tweeted that he's being told that traffic classes are voluntary -- despite his claim in the story that Rubio missed a driving class and was cited for it or ordered back to it or something.

So he now seems to be hedging on a central factual claim.

Maybe he should run this by David Brock again to see what he thinks.

Update: The New York Time doesn't respond to the Free Beacon's request for comment -- instead, they go to liberal Dylan Byers at liberal as shit Politico.

Just like ABCNews did with the WFB Stephanopolous scoop.

The New York Times denies they got the story from American Bridge -- they're claiming they came upon this on their own. They just happened to be looking at the records at the same time American Bridge was.
