Marco Rubio still teaching an FIU course, online - Patricia MazzeiPatricia Mazzei, Miami Herald

Rubio has co-taught an online fall course, according to the university and his campaign. The class, held for an hour a week on Wednesday evenings, is titled, "Topics in Politics -- the General Election." "He participates live from home or on the campaign trail using a laptop," campaign spokeswoman Olivia Perez-Cubas said in a statement. On Aug. 16, John F. Stack Jr., dean of the Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs, sent Rubio a letter inviting him to work as a "visiting assistant scholar/science/engineer" for the three-credit class, which is co-taught by Dario Moreno and Sara Moats. The course enrolls more than 150 students. Rubio has taught on and off at FIU for years, particularly with Moreno, a Republican pollster. He's getting paid $8,000, according to Stack's letter, which the Miami Herald obtained from FIU through a public records request. That's based on an annual salary rate of $24,000. Rubio makes $174,000 a year as a U.S. senator. http://www.tampabay.com/blogs/the-buzz-florida-politics/marco-rubio-still-teaching-an-fiu-course-online/2301404
