Sink's 2-Minute Ad Attacks Scott's Credibility

Tampa, FL (AP) - Florida's Democratic candidate for governor,
Alex Sink, is rolling out a rare two-minute-long TV ad slamming
Republican nominee Rick Scott for a massive fraud scandal that
occurred on his watch at his former hospital company.
Scott won the GOP primary despite a barrage of criticism over
the federal Medicare investigation of Columbia/HCA, the hospital
conglomerate he founded. He was forced out as CEO by his board, and
the company eventually paid a record $1.7 billion to settle
charges.
Sink's campaign says the ad -- it won't reveal the airing cost --
is running once during evening newscasts Wednesday in the Tampa Bay
market only, but it may run in other markets later.
Scott's campaign says in a statement that Sink is "repackaging
old, tired attacks that failed to resonate with Floridians in the
primary."

    Yes Anon he is a crook and dont you know that billionaires rerely go to jail for anything. Money talks you know. Its far more honorable to lose money in business than it is to steal it. Alex Sink is the only choice we have. Give her your support as i will.
