A VOTE FOR ALEX SINK IS A VOTE FOR OBAMA IN 2012 (FL-Gov) [videos]

ALEX SINK IS INDEED AN OBAMA LEFTY
In 2008, the media and pundits told us that Obama was a moderate. But Obama has taken this nation sharply to the left. His leftist policies led to record-breaking unemployment, foreclosures, deficits and debts. Now, these so-called experts tell us that Alex Sink is a moderate, but records who she is as radical as Obama.

IF ALEX SINK IS SO MODERATE, WHY ARE RADICAL LEFTISTS DONATING TO HER CAMPAIGN
Leftists supporting Alex Sink:

Sink has been reliant on a small universe of big givers, a tight network of unions and interest groups that have disclosed large contributions to the Florida Democratic Party.

The FEA, the statewide teachers union, has funneled at least $2.5 million — and $1.74 million since September — to party coffers, largely to help pay for Sink’s ads, campaign staff, polling and other expenses.

The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees [AFSCME] has sent the party $1.2 million through Oct. 8 — and $775,000 since the primary.

Unions are investing heavily in Sink, in part because Scott has pledged to reduce the state workforce by 5 percent and cut property taxes by $1.4-billion statewide…

[…]

But perhaps the biggest cash infusion has come courtesy of Tallahassee elections lawyer Mark Herron, who has sent up a political committee called Mark-PAC that has raised $6 million — and sent more than $4.8 million to the state Democratic Party over the last two months. Most of his total — $5 million through Oct. 8 — came from the Democratic Governor’s Association, but $300,000 came from abortion-rights group EMILY’S List and $750,000 from the American Federation of Teachers.

No Transparency
By running money through Herron’s committee, set up as a Committee of Continuous Existence under Florida law, the groups don’t have to create their own committees and disclose contributors in Florida — which has one of the broader campaign-finance disclosure laws in the country.
