Crist & Scott spend more money on new ads bashing each other

We're 85 days away from the general election, plenty of time for Rick Scott and Charlie Crist to alienate more voters with their incessantly negative TV ad war campaign. 

Crist's new ad is called "Shady," which should give you fair warning that it's not going to be a feel-good message about hope and change coming to Tallahassee after Charlie retakes the Governor's mansion. It starts with some vintage footage of Scott when he actually had hair, as he refuses to answer questions in a legal deposition that was videotaped when he was the head of one of his healthcare companies.  Watch below:
Not to be outdone, the Rick Scott team has responded to an ad that came out last week from a political action committee that is opposing Scott's run for re-election. That would be the ad from Tom Steyer's NextGen Climate Action group that said that Scott "raked in $200,000 in campaign contributions from oil interests whose company profited from the pollution" near the Everglades.
The reference was alluding to Texas driller Dan A. Hughes's company who was caught using fracking-like blasting methods to drill for oil near the Everglades earlier this year. But the RPOF immediately denounced the ad and said that "no political entity" associated with Scott ever received any contributions from the company, and that in fact the Scott administration had shut down Hughes operations in Collier Company and pulled their permits. 

The new Scott ad is called"Fiction."
