    Ok so what do you do when both candidates for Governor of your state just absolutely turn your stomach. I have been faces with voting for the lesser of the two evils before (McCain vs obongo), but in those cases it was never that I absolutely hated the one that I voted for, they were just not what I would call the “best” available. The Florida Governor race has Alex Sink (D) and Rick Scott (R). Both are as crooked as a pigs tail. Both were corporate frauds, Sink as BOA president and Scoot as Columbia Healthcare CEO. Both should be in jail. Sink has squandered the states money in her current elected position and scares the crap out of me as far as running the state. She has constianlty given her former company sweetheart deals with the state and is only interested in her own interest and the interest of those who support her. Scott is the biggest crook to ever run. He still cannot come clean about his companies medicare fraud and his involvement in it. He has been less than honest about the whole thing, taking the fifth numerous times in court and depositions. BOTH SUCK REALLY, REALLY BAD. I do not want either one running my state. This race is exactly what is wrong with our political system today. These candidates are what you would expect to see in a corrupt third world country and we should be embarrassed that this is the best we (Florida) can do for Governor of our state. God help us.
    My vote will go reluctantly to Scott because he has one thing, and only one thing, that is in his favor and that is he is rated A by the NRA. My only fear is that he will end up in prison before he leaves office.

    And in California we have old Gov. Moonbeam leading the governor's race. He wasn't a good governor the first time around. Of course, the younger votes don't remember his first term. They weren't born yet.

    Somehow Jerry Brown was elected Attorney General when he was not a licensed lawyer.

    Go figure.

    I asked the same question on a different thread"

    We have a bit of a dilema here in Florida on which crook to vote for in the race for Governor. Has somewhat to do with Medicare.

    On the Republican side is Rick Scott
    One questioned Scott's decision to plead the Fifth Amendment 75 times in a lawsuit involving one of his companies.

    After months of being tarred for mammoth fraud at the hospital company he founded, Republican gubernatorial nominee Rick Scott is launching his own hard-hitting ad, accusing Democrat Alex Sink of bilking investors as the Florida president of NationsBank in the 1990s.
    Scott has said repeatedly he "takes responsibility" for the billions of dollars in illegal Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements Columbia/HCA collected under his watch. Scott was forced out of the company in the late 1990s after the U.S. Justice Department announced its Medicare fraud investigation.

    And on the Democratic side Alex Sink

    One claims that as president of NationsBank Florida she was responsible for questionable sales practices conducted by a separate securities company that reported to NationsBank Corp.
    The other ad echoes one from Scott's Republican allies that singles out Sink for blame over state pension fund losses — she, along with Gov. Charlie Crist and Attorney General Bill McCollum, was one of three members of the board administering the trust fund.

    If you get it figured out let your neighbors to the north know.

    Well then be careful who you vote for Lt Governor... It could be worse. In my state we get to choose from an ex NBA player who is pretty much clueless, and an Ex governor. On second thought, it sounds like your state is worse off. I doubt either of our candidates will end up in prison.

    Isn't your other choice the CEO who exported all the HP jobs out of the country and then got fired? Fiornia? Yeah, that's a pretty bad choice. Moonbeam or The Hatchet lady. No winners there.
