rubio-cristFort Myers, Fla -Republican Senate candidate Marco Rubio did not spend $134 on a “back wax” at a high-end barbershop in Miami, as alleged by his primary opponent Gov. Charlie Crist, Rubio’s campaign said early Wednesday.

“Marco paid $20 for a haircut with a razor on the neck, and he bought some items that went into a silent auction, including gift certificates,”Alex Burgos, a spokesman for Rubio said in a statement to Live Shots.” Charlie Crist’s obsession with making up things about other people’s grooming habits is bizarre for anyone, especially the sitting governor of Florida. It’s also a shame he cares more about what’s in Marco’s personal bills than what’s in the stimulus bill he supported.”

During an interview with FOX Monday, Crist blasted Rubio for the personal expenses the front-runner made on his Florida GOP credit card while Speaker of the state House,which included the visit to Churchill’s Barbershop.

“ He’s trying to pawn himself off as a fiscal conservative”, Crist told FNC anchor Greta Van Susteren.” And yet just in recent weeks, two weeks ago it has come out in news accounts he had a Republican Party of Florida credit card that he charged $130 haircut, or maybe it was a back wax — we are not sure what all he got at that place. “

Rubio, the front-runner in the acrimonious race, has said that he paid for the personal charges on the American Express card directly from his own accounts.
