Democrat Alex Sink Cheats in Debate, Then Blames/Fires Aide; and Lies to Cover

Does any Democrat know how to take responsibility for their actions?During the CNN/St. Petersburg Times Florida gubernatorial debate, Alex Sink’s makeup artist showed her a text messagefrom a campaign staffer, which was a clear violation of the debate rules. CNN reports:

Sink, the Democratic nominee, was shown a two-sentence message on a cell phone that offered her advice during the debate. Republican nominee Rick Scott who was sitting next to her in this nationally televised debate, noticed the violation and notified a CNN official, who approached the make-up artist and Sink and confiscated the cell phone.

The message read: “The attorney who [w]on the Sykes suit said alex sink did nothing wrong. Tell not to let him keep talking about her.”

After the debate, the Sink campaign released a statement from the candidate announcing that the advisor who sent the message has been removed from the campaign. The advisor was not named in the statement, but a campaign spokesman confirmed it is Brian May, who signed the rules agreement before the debate on behalf of the Sink campaign. emphasis mine

It was also confirmed that May has been removed from the campaign.

However, if you look at the video Sink clearly has no problem with reading the text message, so she herself must carry the blame here. She could have told her makeup artist it was against the rules, but clearly she was receptive to the message. See for yourself. Sink read the text message without hesistation, and then threw her aide under the bus without hesistation. Typical Democrat blame-shifter.

Well, what a day makes. Sink now plays the mommy card. Sink, with Chris Matthews, only digs a hole for herself with a lie to seek cover:

But, CNN’s John King makes it very clear they have audio of the exchange between the makeup artist and Sink:

This should seal the deal for Rick Scott, because not only is Sink incapable of taking responsibility for her actions, we now know she will lie to cover them up.
