Florida Medical Association endorses Rick Scott

The Florida Medical Association, the state's premier doctor lobby, is about to endorse Republican Rick Scott. Quite a medical coup for the former health executive, who ruffled loads of feathers in the 1990s when he headed the Columbia/HCA hospital chain to the cheers of some docs and the opposition of others.

A few FMA-affiliated docs aren't so happy and say they're going to form a Doctors For Sink group. While that's all good and well, the FMA endorsement is bad news for Sink if the group opens up its political arm, People for a Better Florida, which sometimes takes the opposite approach of the hippocratic oath in campaigns: First, Do Much Harm.

So all the Doc.'s who the crook Rick Scott bribed are supporting him. BIG SURPRISE!!!!

I got more junk mail from Rick Scott campaign which didn't say anything about Rick Scott, it just showed a photo of Alex Sink with Obama. This Alex Sink - Obama photo isn't as disgusting as Rubio's picture of Charlie Crist kissing Obama but it will certainly cost Alex Sink the election.
