New Scott radio ad: ‘Cheating. Hilarious.’

by Dara Kam | October 26th, 2010

It didn’t take long for Republican Rick Scott’s campaign to make political hay out of Democrat Alex Sink’s “Debate-gate” gaffe at Monday night’s debate.

His campaign released a new radio ad poking fun at Sink, the state’s chief financial officer, for breaking the rules by taking a message from campaign aide Brian May, an insurance industry lobbyist who left his business to work for Sink.

Listen to Scott’s “She Cheated” ad.

Here’s part of the transcript:

“Did you see Alex Sink get caught cheating?”

“You mean when CNN caught her breaking the debate rules and getting a note from her coach?”

“Cheating. Hilarious.”

“Here’s what’s not funny. Alex Sink’s debate coach…is a lobbyist.”

“The same guy who gave her the note in the debate?”

“Yep. He’s a lobbyist for the insurance industry that Sink is supposed to be regulating.”

    Is her cheating the same as under Rick Scott’s leadership, his company was found guilty and fined billions for cheating tax payers? Rickity Tickity Scott needs to lay off the negative campaign. Its old and tiring.

    Alex is a double cheater. Shame, shame!

  4. Unreal Says:

    Did you happen to see Alex’s response? She said she looked at it and didn’t know what it was. Didn’t even know who it was from.
    What a lie.
    Your telling me she is going to be handed a private message in a setting like that from a stranger?
    If Brian was a lobbyist im glad hes gone, but she shouldn’t have fired him she should have fessed up to it.
    A better answer would have been, my assistant handed me the phone, and told me i had to see this. I didn’t know it was advice for the debate and i glanced at it and handed the phone back.
    Her answer was bad and clearly a lie.

    Gets your facts straight, Bobby…Mr. Scott’s hospital corporation simply got caught-up in a federal billing loop-hole like hundreds of other health care corporations did! There was no cheating. There was no intent to defraud. His corporation – like all the others – re-paid their errors and the associated fines – and moved-on!

    Alex Sink chose to just plain-violate one of the few simples rules of the debate that was just minutes old, not thousands of pages long like those health care rules and regulations!

    For Fred, then WHY did he take the fifth over 70 times? Billing loop my fanny. The guy IS a crook of the highest degree. I’m not saying that Sink was right but Scott has no wiggle room to call anyone a cheat but you can white wash it any way you want to ease your mind.

  8. jac Says:

    He acts old and tiring. We are in a cellphone world . Many of with BRAINS DON’T CARE THAT SHE IS LOOKING AT A PHONE. EVERYONE HAS ONE IN THEIR HAND 24 HOURS A DAY. THIS WASN’T A SAT TEST. I ALREADY VOTED FOR SINK. THIS DEBATE IS LATE ANYWAY. HIS ADS ARE DIRECTED TOWARDS THE 90 AND OLDER CROWD ANYWAY WITH DEMENTIA.

  9. Larry Says:

    Alex Sink will be behold to unions. That means you will be footing the costs of their perks.

    Alex Sink+union Thugs=Diaster for taxpayers.

    Alex promised them the taxpayers would foot their special healthcare, they wouldn’t have to contribute to their pensions.

    Alex Sink is in bed with the unions.

    And Alex cheats then fires someone else after SHE took the text message. NO INTEGRITY!

  10. Alex is a LIAR and CHEAT Says:

    It is evident that democrats will make excuses for improper behavior.

    Those are the people we need to vote out of office. We all know, that if Scott took a message this would have been plastered all over the news.

    Alex Sink is a wimp. We don’t need wimps running Florida during this economic crisis.

    After the elections democrats are going to push for AMNESTY. Don’t give them the power. NO to ALL democrats.

  11. Review YOUR ballot Says:

    With everything that is happening in early balloting, be SURE to check that YOUR ballot is accurate.

    Union people are running the voting precincts, mail-in ballots are ‘lost’, unaccounted for.

    Make sure your vote counts.

  12. republican_mommy Says:

    @Jac hahaha! yes! Rick Scott couldn’t be more crooked if he tried. And please, let’s remember that in the first debate, Rick Scott brought several pages of notes with him– clearly against he rules, and Alex Sink didn’t whine about it. These are not the important issues. sigh.

  13. Large Peter Says:

    Scott sucks. My vote will cancel you wackos who vote for the crooked Scott

  14. Peggy Joseph Says:

    Sink looks Florida in the face and blatantly lies about her cheating during the debate.
