An assistant to a top executive at the Spanish-language television network Univision attacked Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, on a staff member's Facebook page Wednesday, calling him a "loser" and a "token slave boy."
Sen. Marco Rubio still gets billed as a potential vice presidential candidate in 2012, and there are those who pine for him to run for president one day.
When Sen. Marco Rubio delivers his first formal address in the Senate on Tuesday, the Florida Republican will be the last of the 13 freshman senators swept into office in January to give his so-called "maiden speech."
Lady Gaga recently beat out President Obama in the number of Facebook "friends" she accumulated - 11.9 million for the chanteuse versus 10.4 million for the president.
The comments came after the senator's spokesman, Alex Burgos, announced Mr. Rubio would give the GOP's first-ever bilingual rebuttal to President Obama's State of the Union speech, The Miami Herald reports.
Following the telephone call with Lee and other Univision officials, Rubio spokesman Alex Burgos wrote Univision President Randy Falco on July 8, stating "we were disappointed and disturbed by the editorial policy your team made clear that Univision has now adopted when covering private persons who are completely uninvolved in politics, but simply happened to be related to a public official."
