Mike Fernandez, the Finance Chair for Governor Rick Scott’s Re-election campaign, who recently quit behind racially insensitive remarks by campaign staffers regarding Hispanics, went quite Sarah Palin-esque in emails obtained by the Miami Herald. In the emails, you could feel the frustration Mr. Fernandez had towards the shenanigans going on within the campaign. Here is a portion of an email:
“The Governor’s ad was sterile (reinforces how people see him). Imagine if he said the same words but the setting was different. Sitting on a park bench, no tie (for God’s sake it is Florida), light blue shirt, not white, his family around him and at closing Ann steps in and hand him a grandson. WHAT A DIFFERENCE THAT WOULD HAVE MADE! We can raise $100 m and misspend it and the $$$ is in material.Ignore me, but you will continue getting my comments because I want him to win. I know, I don’t know anything about politics nor political advertising but I know about sales…. You don’t trust me because I am not willing to become a supporting cast member to the “Yes Team” but trust this, my net worth exceeds $3B, and I made it because I am not stupid and I can sell!
Have a good weekend.
PS. Melissa please give a copy to the Governor. I want him to know what I am saying. I would also like to meet with him and Sen. Thrasher at their convenience.
