Rick Scott blames Alex Sink for Florida pension losses

Rick, Rick, Rick. Really?

This is the second ad Scott is using to tag his rival - Democrat Alex Sink - with blame for Florida's pension losses.

Here's what we said about the first ad:  Yes, Florida's pension fund has been clobbered. But Sink is one of three statewide officials with oversight responsibility.

The other two - Gov. Charlie Crist who was still a Republican when the pension fund took a big hit on Wall Street and Attorney General Bill McCollum who until recently was the party leaderships's favorite candidate for governor.
