UPDATE: Statement from Alex Sink:
"After the debate tonight, one of my campaign advisors admitted he tried to communicate with me during one of the breaks. While he told me it was out of anger with Rick Scott's repeated distortion of facts, it was a foolish thing to do. It violated a debate agreement and I immediately removed him from the campaign."
Adam Smith of the St. Petersburg Times was one of the questioners during the CNN debate between Democrat Alex Sink and Republican Rick Scott.
At one point during the debate Scott said Sink broke the rules during a commercial break.
Smith in a post on The Buzz reports that Sink did, in Smith's word, "cheat."
Apparently Sink's make-up artist slipped her a phone message about how to respond to a question Scott was raising. That was against the rules which forbid the campaigns from communicating with the candidate during the debate.
Yes I know she won't pay a $1.7 billion fine.
