Misleading Scott attack on McCollum misses the flip-flop

Republican wild-card candidate for governor Rick Scott is up with a new ad attacking frontrunner Bill McCollum's stance on Arizona's new immigration law, which empowers local police to enforce federal immigration law. Scott says in the ad that McCollum "rejects'' the Arizona approach.

It's true that McCollum originally called the law "far out." But he subsequently said amendments to the law made it something he could support -- even in Florida. Then he reversed himself again, saying Florida didn't need that kind of law. That's the quote used in the ad.

This is the second consecutive ad by Scott on immigration that's misleading. The new ad is here.
