Rick Scott's new ad uses Sink's statements on cheating against her

"If someone lies or cheats, I hold them accountable." Those words from a television ad of Democrat Alex Sink's early in the campaign are now being used against her in a new web ad by the Rick Scott campaign for governor. Scott's add strings together media reports on the debate episode in which Sink received a message on a Droid phone from her political advisor on Monday. Sink fired the aide, Brian May, and later said she didn't know what the message said.

With three new polls showing a statistical tie, and three days after the incident, Scott's campaign is running the ad statewide.
