Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio was known to be a "very extroverted homosexual" in high school and college, according to a new report. Rubio has a curious arrest in his background, which has been reported in the mainstream press but has largely been brushed off by his campaign staff. A close Rubio friend, even now, is involved in the gay-pornography business.
Wayne Madsen, an investigative journalist based in Washington, D.C., reports that Republican insiders have said Rubio did little to hide his homosexuality while in high school at South Beach Miami and at the University of Florida.
The Wayne Madsen Reporter (WMR) is a subscription Web site, but we have received permission to report certain items from the site. The full Rubio article, dated January 29-31, can be read at the bottom of this post. The story involves Rubio's 1990 arrest at a park known as a gay pick-up spot, an event his campaign has tried to keep under wraps. From the Madsen piece:
In 1989, a year before Rubio was arrested with his friend Angel Barrios and another unidentified male friend in Alice Wainwright Park in south Miami, ostensibly for drinking beer in a car after closing time in a park known as a pickup locale for gays, Rubio sang and danced in a South Miami High School troupe. The song and dance troupe was based on the Chippendales but with a very gay theme: half Chippendales and half Village People. Rubio omitted his participation in the dance troupe in his biography, "American Son."
Rubio's college career got off to a rocky start, so he apparently turned to other not-so-savory activities, with ties to drugs and gay porn. Reports Madsen:
After flunking out of Tarkio College in Missouri, Rubio returned to Miami where he hung around with his old high school friend Barrios. Barrios started an on-line gay porn business called Flava Works, which is still in business today live streaming sexual acts between black and Latino men.
In order to prepare for the University of Florida, Rubio attended Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville. Republican sources have told WMR that Rubio, Barrios, and two other students shared a townhouse in Gainesville that was known locally as a "coke house," where cocaine was readily available, as were almost non-stop parties in what amounted to an off-campus gay frat house. In 1987, Rubio's brother-in-law, Orlando Cicilia, was busted by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for his role as a key figure in a cocaine smuggling ring in south Florida.
A photo has surfaced of a man who looks like Rubio at a 1995 "foam party" in South Beach. Rubio claims to have met his wife, a former Miami Dolphins cheerleader, at such an event, but Madsen says that story doesn't add up:

"Foam Party" in 1995
(From Wayne Madsen Report)
"The scene generally features several hundred scantily clad bodies packed onto a dance floor and writhing to bone-rattling music under strobes and colored lights. Nothing new, right? Until suds come gushing out of a machine suspended over the dance floor. As if on cue, various forms of passionate embrace begin. Kissing. Petting. Rubbing. Because the foam froths up waist high, it acts both as a lubricant and camouflage. Mutual masturbation is an occasional component, generally beneath the cover of foam. As the evening wears on, a few men pair off and sit together in the foam that builds up outside the partitioned-off area."
