New TV ad targets Alex Sink's use of state plane



The NRCC said this morning it will air this new TV ad attacking Alex Sink. "She used the taxpayer-funded plane so she could get to a vacation in the Bahamas," a narrator says.

The ad relies on 2009 reporting out of Tallahassee, when Sink was CFO, and questions raised about her use of the state plane. Sink eventually reimbursed the state $17,000. The ad implies she flew a state plane to the Bahamas. In fact, she took the state plane from Miami to Fort Lauderdale, and then caught a commercial flight to the Bahamas.
