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."
