David Rivera: "My official conduct has been the most transparent of any member of Congress."

The Miami Republican whose financial dealings are under criminal investigation tells the Naples Daily News that he's disclosed more information than any other member of Congress.

Rivera, who generally only answers questions about the investigation via e-mail, sat down with The Daily News' Jeff Lytle for an interview that will air Sunday.

"How's it going for you back home, in your home district?" Lytle asks him at one point, "David, you’re in trouble.

"Well, everything is going out wonderfully actually," Rivera says. "You know the support I’ve found from residents and voters and people that are concerned about the issues of the day ... the phone calls that I get into my office ..."

Right...even more important...thanks to FDLE, the FBI and the IRS...your official MISCONDUCT is finally transparent. Let's hope they keep digging. The money laundering, sweetheart deals, and political payoffs have finally caught up to you. The only question is---will you rat out your best friend...or will you take the fall?

Don't forget to write

He's correct in the sense that no other Congressman is as transparently criminal in his behavior. Just because he's too dumb to cover his tracks doesn't make him an advocate for transparency.

Time to select your prison nickname, David. Too bad "Worm Boy" is already taken.

Stripes will match your hair

Bwaaahhh hahahahaha... Oh Rivera... you are rich! Really, you are killin' me. But, don't worry, as Billy Crystal would say... you will look "Mahvalous" in stripes! Hey, I'll honk for you when I see you by the side of the road picking up trash.

If he meant he is an empty suit I agree.....

CONGRESSMAN DAVID RIVERA IS INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. THAT IS THE LAW OF THE LAND.
HIS POLITICAL ENEMIES ARE TRYING TO DESTROY HIM WITH LIES AND INNUENDO. THIS IS JUST A DIRTY POLITICAL VENDETTA. HE WON HIS POSITION IN CONGRESS WITH THE MAJORITY OF THE VOTES IN DISTRICT 25.

WHO SAYS HE IS GUILTY OF ANYTHING? HAS HE BEEN INDICTED? JUDGED? FOUND GUILTY?

AGAIN, THIS IS JUST A DIRTY POLITICAL VENDETTA!!!

GOOD JOB DAVID!!!! I WILL VOTE FOR YOU AGAIN.
