Web site asks voters to play the game Movin' Murman



An interactive web site poking at Sandy Murman, a Republican running for the Hillsborough County Commission, asks voters to play a wheel of fortune type game where the "object of the game is to figure out what career politician Sandy Murman will no next." It was paid for buy a 527 called Florida Future Leaders Fund based in Coral Gables. Take a look at it here: An e-mail forwarding the web site to Bay Buzz promises "more to come."

Murman will face Trey Rustmann in the Republican primary in August. Chris Ingram, a political consulant working on Rustmann's campaign said he's not familiar with the Florida Future Leaders group but he said the web site is "pretty humorous," noting that it could be characterized as an attack but "it's not in poor taste. It's not a hard-charging negative. They laid out some of the issues in a satirical kind of way."

The winner of the GOP primary will face former Tampa City Council member John Dingfelder in the general electon.
