Sink worst candidate of the year?



Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Alex Sink, the Democratic who lost to Republican Rick Scott in the closest governor's race in more than a century, was named the Worst Candidate of 2010 this morning by MSNBC's The Daily Rundown program.

That means she beat out Delaware's Christine O'Donnell, New York's Carl Paladino, and Nevada's Sharon Angle.

Chuck Todd, one of the show's hosts, decided that Sink won the dishonor after losing to a candidate whose company committed historic Medicare fraud in a state with a huge number of Medicare clients. That apparently is worse than admitting she wasn't a witch, running on family values after an extramarital affair or telling Hispanic students they looked 'Asian.'
