Congressman Joe Garcia: “I Don’t Owe Anyone An Apology” On Election Scandals

At yesterday’s debate, Florida Democrat Joe Garcia refused to apologize for his campaign’s multiple counts of election fraud:

As his second topic after the economy, Curbelo chose elections fraud, to underscore that Garcia’s former chief of staff pleaded guilty last year to attempted absentee-ballot manipulation, and that Garcia’s 2010 campaign remains under federal investigation over a suspected straw candidate. The challenger called on Garcia to apologize to voters for failing to live up to his 2012 election promise to avoid the scandals that had plagued his predecessor, Republican David Rivera.

“I don’t owe anyone an apology,” Garcia said. “We’ve been clear about the errors that were committed.”

South Florida deserves an apology.
