One of the most liberal members of Congress in Florida Robert Wexler (Obamapropagandist and notorious leftist) is not a resident of his district. He has lived in Maryland since the late 90s. He claims to live in a house in Del Ray (owned by his mother-law) in an active adult community where no children are allowed, though he has three children). You can't live there with kids, it's against the rules of the community.
Another example of Democrat hubris - I am above the law. It seems he has no connection to Florida at all. Clearly it's a phantom residence, he ain't sleeping on monster-in-law's couch with his three children.John Fund wrote earlier today (hat tip Larwyn)
An opponent of U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Delray Beach, has accused the six-term congressman of playing a residency shell game, saying Wexler pretends to keep an address in Florida while flagrantly making his home in Maryland.
Edward Lynch, a Republican running for Wexler's congressional seat
"The house he lists on his voter registration is his in-laws' house in a gated 55-and-older community," Lynch said this afternoon. "Legally, he can't move back with children under 18."
Lynch said Wexler's three children attend Charles W. Smith Jewish Day School in Rockville, Md... Lynch, meanwhile, said he intends to file legal papers about the issue in the coming weeks.
[Since his children can't even legally live there] "...it is not truly his home, and it can't be his home, and he's using that address as his address to vote from," Lynch said... Lynch faces Wexler and no-party candidate Ben Graber in the Nov. 4 election for Florida's 19th Congressional District.
Everyday we have to slog through Democrat skulduggery. Where does he pay his taxes? The man has a giant house in the tony suburb of Potomac where he lives with his wife and family. This is typical democrat behavior - think Charles Rangel with his 4, yeah 4, rent stabilized apartments in NYC where it is impossible to find housing.
Florida while there is still time! ALLEN WEST'S TIME HAS COME: FLORIDA GO WEST!! ROBERT WEXLER & RON KLEIN: ET TU BRUTE JEWS ...
Here's more from the lowlife Wexler blatantly lying to his constituents, lying to the old people in the Florida community.
Robert Wexler, Barack Obama's leading Congressional cheerleader and the man who has worked mightily to convince supporters of the American-Israel alliance that Obama can be relied upon to enhance Israel 's security against Iranian threats to destroy it, indicates he may very well oppose a Congressional Resolution meant to pressure Iran to comply with international demands regarding its nuclear program.
He willfully misleads -as others on the left have done- on the nature of this resolution. They, and Wexler, believe that the Resolution calls for a naval blockade and characterize this as an act of war. They are wrong. The Resolution merely calls upon the President to initiate an "international effort to impose stringent inspection requirements on all persons, vehicles, ships, planes, trains and cargo entering or departing Iran ". This is not a blockade and willfully misinterpreting it to be so is wrong and this interpretation is supported by very clear language in the rest of the Resolution that expressly states that "nothing in this Resolution should be construed as an authorization of the use of force against Iran ". Inspections are not an uncommon feature of non-proliferation efforts. The Proliferation Security Initiative recognizes the importance of being able to interdict and inspect suspect shipments.
The discovery of a ship containing nuclear research material on its way to Libya was key to the discovering and unraveling of the A.Q. Khan nuclear smuggling network and the terminating of Libya 's nuclear program. Regardless, how reliable Wexler's assurances are regarding Barack Obama when he advocates, even at the expense of honesty, an appeasement approach that will strengthen Iran .
Of course, Wexler makes this announcement on the left-wing Huffington Post where he has a column. To wit, Wexler writes:
In the coming weeks, the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, of which I am a member, may vote on House Concurrent Resolution 362. Given my growing concerns regarding this resolution, including its failure to advocate for direct American engagement with Tehran and open language that could lead to a US blockade of Iran, I will lead an effort to make changes to this resolution before it comes to the Foreign Affairs committee for a vote. Despite being a cosponsor of this resolution -- these changes will ultimately determine whether or not I will continue to support H. Con. Res. 362.
So Barack Obama's chief supporter in the House, a man who the Senator has all but appointed as an Ambassador to the Jewish community, seems willing to misinterpret a Resolution in such a way to serve the interests of Iran .
Jews wake up! You have six million to answer to.
Wexler is a Jewicidal whore for the left who cloaks himself in orthodoxy. He would sellout his mother (and his mother in-law - which is invariably what this is, the sellout of Jewish mothers) to further his leftist, socialist agenda.
UPDATE: Lasky over at American Thinker does some investigating. Wexler is in trouble:

It occurs to me that he's in some big trouble.
It will be interesting to see if he paid income taxes in Md. If he did, he clearly lied when he claimed Fla residence. If he said he was a resident of Fla where there is no income tax, Md should have a tax fraud claim against him.Here is what I found on MD residency:Maryland ResidencyWhat establishes whether or not you're considered aMaryland resident? The answer seems to depend on what the issue is. The Maryland MVA requires you to obtain a MD drivers license 60 days after you become a resident of the State. So, when are you a resident of the State? COMAR11.11.06.02 defines a resident as someone who: (1) Owns, leases, or rents a primary place of residence in Maryland for more than 6 months; (2) Has no other residence in any other state or country (see COMAR section for further details). For income tax purposes, the definition is similar. There, a resident is defined as:
1. is domiciled in this State on the last day of the taxable year; or 2. for more than 6 months of the taxable year, maintained a place of abode in this State, whether domiciled in this State or not (Tax General Article of the MD Code 10-101). Finally, as far as voter registration, the Maryland Law Encyclopedia quotes Roberts v. Larkin, 340 MD 147, 1995 as defining residence as "the place of a person's fixed domicile." "Florida's residency requirements:President of the United States: a natural born citizen and resident of the U.S. for the last 14 years.
- United States Senator:a citizen of the U.S. for at least 9 years and resident of the state when elected.
- Representative in Congress: a citizen of the U.S. for at least 7 years and resident of the state when elected.
- Governor and Lieutenant Governor: an elector and resident of the state for the preceding 7 years.
- Cabinet Members: an elector and resident of the state for the preceding 7 years.
- Public Defender: an elector and resident of the circuit upon taking office.
- State Senator: an elector and resident of the district upon taking office and a resident of the state for at least 2 years prior to election.
- State Representative: an elector and resident of the district upon taking office and a resident of the state for at least 2 years prior to election.
- Justice of the Supreme Court: an elector and resident of the state upon taking office.
- Judge, District Court of Appeal: an elector and resident of the state upon taking office.
- County Offices: (See DEO 94-04).
I called Congressman Wexler's office (202) 225-3001 and spoke to a man named "Josh" , asking if the Congressman has issued a formal statement on the issue and whether he has or would make public his income tax returns so we could see if he paid Md taxes or claimed Fla residency. He transferred me to the Congressman's voice mail where I repeated the questions.The voice mail message says the Congressman regularly listens to his voice mail.
I think the House Ethics Committee ought to be opening a file on the Congressman to see if he has evaded applicable tax laws and violated Florida's residency requirements for running for office.
Update 4 PM EDT
Here it appears is the relevant Fla law dealing with election fraud:
files below requires the free acrobat reader
"A person who commits or attempts to commit any fraud in connection with voting, votes a fraudulent ballot, or votes more than once in an election can be convicted of a felony of the third degree and fined up to $5,000 and/or imprisoned for up to 5 years."
Elections fraud can rob many Americans of their voice in government and greatly impact the results of elections across the nation. It is the active participation of citizens, like yourself, which aid in our mission to eliminate elections fraud.
Elections fraud means any irregularities or fraud arising out of or in connection with voter registration or voting, or candidate petition or issue petition activities that may constitute a prescribed offense Chapter 104, Florida Statutes. "Elections fraud" does not include violations of Chapter 106, F.S.
Should you observe or witness a potential case of election fraud, we ask that you complete the Complaint Form the form so it may be further investigated (see Rule 1S-2.025, Elections fraud Complaints).
The Division conducts preliminary investigations into any irregularities or fraud involving voter registration or voting, or candidate petition or issue petition activities, in conjunction with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. If there is probable cause that a violation occurred, the Division will report its findings to the statewide prosecutor or the state attorney for the judicial circuit in which the alleged violation occurred for prosecution, where warranted.
Therefore, in order for us to be able to conduct preliminary investigations, it is imperative that you provide us with the date, time, place and any specific circumstances that are witnessed. We need credible evidence (this does not mean suspicion). We also need a means of contacting you to obtain additional information. If you believe you have witnessed elections fraud, please contact our Elections Fraud Hotline at 1- 877-868-3737.
I called an attorney at the General Counsel's office to see if anyone has filed a complaint and if there are any cases dealing with perjury on candidate petition forms.
They responded and said it was a federal matter, not a state one. That as to his present eligibility inquiry should be made to the Speaker of the House of Representatives or a challenge can be made iin federal district court in Florida.As to whether he is liable for past election fraud, inquiry should be made to the Florida Attorney General.

UPDATE: Cindy sent me this: "Wexler reacts here (like a crying little girl) Like I posted in the comments, they didn't have any problem ripping apart Rick Santorum for pretty much the same thing."
UPDATE: Corrupt Wexker is scamming the tax code. That is so ....... Democrat.
