Scott and Sink square off in contentious debate
Seated next to each other in a college theater, both candidates showed flashes of anger as they attacked each other over their business records, campaign promises and TV ads. Three times Scott scolded Sink for smiling or laughing as he criticized her.
"What are you smiling about? You don't care about seniors? Is that the deal?" Scott said, accusing Sink's former bank of ripping off customers.
Sink sometimes showed impatience with Scott and the moderators. In an exchange with Scott over NationsBank selling questionable securities, Sink snapped at Scott: "You can't lecture me about fraud." The reference was to the record $1.7 billion in Medicare fraud fines paid by Scott's former hospital company, Columbia/HCA. (story here)
