Anti-Alex Sink Ad Fails to Mention McCollum's Similar Indiscretions

A new anti-Alex Sink political group -- cleverly named Don't Bank on Sink -- has hired the worst Robin Leach impersonator for a new YouTube ad that hits the state's CFO and Democratic candidate for governor for her questionable private plane use.

The only thing funny about the ad: It fails to mention that similar private plane accusations have ensnared her Republican competitor, Attorney General Bill McCollum, as well as Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp. It also uses some video shot by the Times/Herald, and the folks at the Times' Buzz blog say they'll be in touch with their lawyer about that.
