Sen. Marco Rubio’s wife sideswiped a donor’s Porcsche Panamera at the Delano hotel’s porte cochère during a big weekend fundraiser for her husband, whose truck she was driving.
The owner of the Porsche, whose identity hasn’t been made public, didn’t want to file a report against Jeanette Dousdebes-Rubio because the damage to the vehicle’s bumper was minimal, Miami Beach Police said.
“It was a minor fender-bender,” said Vivian Thayer, public information officer for the department. “It looked like she may have bumped the vehicle’s bumper. And, yes, a fender-bender isn’t a good term because the fender wasn’t bent.”
Mrs. Rubio was driving her husband’s mammoth Ford F-150 on Saturday morning when she swiped the Porsche as she tried to squeeze by it at the hotel’s narrow pickup and drop-off semicircle driveway on Collins Avenue.
