Fasano blasts Sink's Amendment 1 amnesia



Democratic CFO Alex Sink said the other day that she could not recall how she voted on the Amendment 1 property tax plan approved in January 2008. That brought a slam from Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, who was a big supporter.

"I am absolutely astonished that a candidate for governor of Florida doesn’t remember supporting historic tax reform championed by Governor Crist, the Florida Legislature and more than 60 percent of Florida voters,” Fasno said in a statement released by the Republican Party of Florida. “Registered Independents, who couldn’t even vote in the Presidential Preference Primary, came out by the hundreds of thousands to support Amendment 1, yet someone seeking the state’s highest office won’t even take a position on the issue."

Sink may have forgotten but the Buzz has a long memory. Check out this item from just a few days before the vote, where Sink says Amendment 1 is bad for Florida.
