Marco Rubio Admits to Puking After Vodka-Shot Contest, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen Makes Fun of Him
The Miami Herald had a story over the weekend outlining some of the contents of Sen. Marco Rubio's autobiography, An American Son, due to come out tomorrow. It included a tidbit about Rubio's drinking habits:
Where President Obama, for instance, admitted drug use in his first autobiography, Rubio is silent about it. He admits to partying in South Beach's post-Hurricane Andrew renaissance.
A modest drinker at most, Rubio recalls one moment of excess after a 1996 Bob Dole presidential campaign event in New Hampshire. On the flight home, he got into a vodka-shot competition. He wound up vomiting on an operative in front of his first political mentor, Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, and current state Sen. John Thrasher.
