Debbie's husband is a corporate lawyer and an active member of The Florida Bar. He has been working for the Fiesta Restaurant Group for the past 19 years.

However, in 2018, Debbie and her husband got involved in a huge scandal, as Robert got linked with Ukrainian businessman Igor Kolomoisky, who has been accused of bribery, murder, and embezzlement.

But, Robert denied ever representing or being linked to the controversial businessman in any way. And all those talks slowly disappeared after the 2018 elections.

Further, things got sketchy between them, when Trump called out the Congresswoman during a “homecoming” rally in November 2019. The president accused the Democrats of not doing anything for people. And during all this, Trump even mispronounced her name.

As a reply to the President, Debbie posted a video saying,

Hey President Trump. It’s Congresswoman Debbie Mucarsel-Powell and I’m right here, And next time you want to talk about the bills that we’ve already passed to lower prescription drug prices, protect our communities from gun violence or even prevent vaping deaths, please give me a call.

Debbie's strong reply in a video went viral, pretty soon. Within a few days, it had 100,000 views and more than 2,300 retweets.
