The Alex Sink campaign today released a two-minute YouTube clip that strings together moments from a videotaped deposition given by Sink’s Republican opponent, Rick Scott, in 1995.

The video builds on reporting by the St. Petersburg Times and The Miami Herald that examines Scott’s “poor memory” and “penchant for parsing words” when speaking under oath, and includes some of the moments included in partial transcripts published by the Times/Herald. The 1995 deposition was recorded as part of “an antitrust case brought by Orlando Regional Healthcare System against Scott’s former company Columbia/HCA,” according to the Times/Herald.
