Sink: Insurers 'planted' anti-Crist editorials



Ot_258775_keel_insurance_2_6 We chatted with Alex Sink about the recent series of Wall Street Journal editorials hammering Charlie Crist over Florida's attempted property insurance fixes. "Those were planted by the insurance industry,'' the Democratic Chief Financial Officer scoffed, after taping an interview for "Political Connections" on Bay News 9.  "(Crist) hasn't given the industry the access that they're used to."

The industry even tried to get former Gov. Jeb Bush to intervene with Crist, Sink said, but "to his credit" Jeb declined to do so.
