Dirty Politics 2010

In the Florida governor's race:

Alex Sink violated the rules of the debate (cheated), then lied about it.

In the Florida Fracas for senator:

Charlie Crist, who was first a Republican and now an Independent, and who apparently has said he will caucus with the Democrats if elected, called Kendrick Meek, the Democrat in the race, and encouraged him to drop out. When Meek didn't return the 5 am phone call, Charlie showed up at a Meek campaign event. Throw in Bubba and we have quite the menage-a-trois.

In the US House election:

Alan Grayson is running a very nasty re-election campaign. Rumors persist that he has personally funded the campaign of Peg Dunmire (Tea Party candidate*) in order to draw conservative votes away from Dan Webster. Not illegal, but certainly unethical.

Alan Grayson Backing Florida Tea Party

It's interesting that most of the dirty politics, here in Florida at least, seem to be the doing of one particular political party.

(*Note: the Tea Party is not a political party, but rather a political movement)
