Florida Republicans are running scared. Four week away from possibly losing a Gubernatorial election in twenty years, the RPOF is “going nuclear” in its attempts to bloody Governor Charlie Crist while erecting a defense around Rick Scott’s own shady behavior.
Yesterday, the RPOF released an ad titled “corrupt” in reference to Governor Crist, even though the previous day Attorney General Pam Bondi had indicated Democratic AG nominee George Sheldon was “inappropriate” in implying any corruption from Governor Scott.
Floridians are tired of the policies of the Scott Administration and the desperate Republican Party which has created a culture of cronyism and entitlement in state government is sensing power slipping away. Instead of touting the positive accomplishments of this administration (which are far and few between) they have resorted to slanderous attack ads in the dying days of a campaign.
After 16 years of complete Republican control of state government, Floridians are indicating that on November 4th they will proclaim “enough is enough.” For the RPOF which has long been the sanctuary of ethically challenged politicians to run such an ad is galling hypocrisy at its finest.
The full ad is below:
