Marco Rubio Was Evicted From a Second Office

Senator Marco Rubio was evicted from is office building in Tampa, Florida last week and now he's also been evicted from his office in Jacksonville according to the Washington Post.

Rubio’s Jacksonville office is next door to a center for children with mental health issues. The decision to not renew the lease was prompted — at least partly — by concerns over the protests’ effects on patients.

“As discussed given the sensitivity around our pediatric behavioral health group (and soon to add a pediatric Autism group) with regard to the protests, unfortunately we will not be renewing the lease with Senator Rubio,” said an email from the property management director for Baptist Health Properties, which owns the space that Rubio has been leasing.

Protesters have patrolled Rubio's offices because Rubio himself refuses to hold town hall meetings where his constituents may have access to him. Rubio has left his constituents with no alternative but to take their message directly to his offices.

There are a number of reasons why his constituents may be inspired to protest outside Rubio's offices, but his refusal to meet with any of them seems to be the base reason for these evictions.

As much as I appreciate the comic relief, he really ought to speak to his constituents.

    Unfortunately Rubio was just reelected to another six year term. He has no electoral concerns for another six years. Which means his electoral fortunes aren’t tied (or anchored) to the rolling madness of the Trump Junta. He’s probably planning to just hunker down and wait out the storm. It is satisfying to see him at least pay the price of being hectored all over the state though.

      And his constituents are getting exactly the level of service they asked for by electing him.

        I had that thought as well.

    • Sometimes people remember things. If he can’t sort this mess out, Floridian just might remember that time Rubio was a complete tool.

      • I’m pretty sure they had plenty of examples of that before the recent election.
