Alex Sink IDs fired staffer, Brian May; says she didn't mean to break debate rules



TP_329949_garn_govcamps_1.JPGAlex Sink just confirmed that the staffer she fired after last night's debate was Brian May, who had sent a text message/e-mail to the Droid of her makeup artist, who in turn shared it with the Democrat amid the gubernatorial debate last night.

The incident had a double irony for Sink: 1) May signed the debate agreement that essentially outlawed the message-passing, 2) Sink has spent considerable time and political capital trying to make Scott out to be the cheater due to the Medicare fraud in the past of his former company, Columbia/HCA.
