Alex Sink Runs Controversial Last-Minute Ad on Miami Spanish Radio
Here, via Politico, is the transcript of the radio ad:
Girl's voice: Dad, pull over, you are being stopped for speeding.The Miami Herald's Naked Politics called the ad "jaw-dropping" and "fear-inducing," but it's fair to say that things such as that could happen depending on which version of a Scott-supported immigration bill passed. Besides, Scott is no stranger to "jaw-dropping" and "fear-inducing" ads himself. "Obama's Mosque," anyone?
Father: I am sorry, officer. It looks like I was speeding.
Officer: Do you speak English? I need to see your papers.
Father: Why? I have been a U.S. citizen for 10 years, but I don't have with me my naturalization certificate... In what country are we living?
Officer: Sir, I am going to have to detain you until you can produce your papers.
Girl's voice (translating the cop's words for her father): He says he is going to detain you until you prove you are a citizen.
Officer: I am going to have to see your papers as well, young lady.
Girl's voice: But I was born in this country.
Announcer: What you just heard could occur in Florida if Rick Scott gets his way. Scott wants a law that is stronger than Arizona in Florida and does not want us to speak Spanish or English with an accent. Is this the Florida you want for your family? Say no to Rick Scott.
