A man was physically removed from a Marco Rubio campaign event in New York City on Tuesday after he stood up and asked a series of seemingly-unrelated questions about alleged scandals involving “wire fraud” and adultery.
“How do you plan to fix accountability in courts? How do you plan to deal with fraud” the man asked Rubio as the event’s moderator tried to make him stop talking. “The answer is you can’t. You cheated on your wife in Florida.”
“I think you should drop out of the race,” he added. “Your polling numbers are too low to win.”

“It was actually kind of weird, anyway,” Rubio said after the man had been escorted out of the room, eliciting nervous laughter from the crowd.
The accusations hurled at Rubio appear to stem from various unsubstantiated reports, including rumors that he has fathered children with women other than his wife. Other allegations against Rubio include his alleged use of a Republican Party credit card to pay for personal expenses.
