Florida Democratic Congressman Lives In Senior Center With In-laws -- Or Maryland -- Who Can Say?

One of Barack Obama's strongest Congressional supporters may not even be a resident of the district he has represented in Congress.  Robert Wexler, a Democrat, is being accused by his Republican opponent in an upcoming election of "playng a residency shell game", saying Wexler pretends to keep an address in Florida while "flagrantly" making his home in Maryland. As a Florida "resident", Wexler apparently pays no state income tax, while living with his family in Maryland, which does have a state income tax.

The dispute has entered the No Spin Zone on the O'Reilly Factor. The home district paper, The Palm Beach Post, reports. Atlas Shrugs has more.
