It feels like an attempt to just embarass Rubio or tarnish him by implication. (Unless Rubio has supported attacking other people’s relatives – turnabout is fair play).

I’m fine with investigative reporters looking into it, because it might become a story with more facts (i.e., if Rubio was somehow tied to the drug gang or spent so much time at his sister’s place that he must have known) but it is kind of tabloidy to publish it at this stage.
