shady deal?

It’s the week before Election Day and Bill Nelson can’t be happy with how the week is starting off.

This morning, the Scott for Florida campaign released a new ad that puts a spotlight on a shady real estate deal Nelson did with a corrupt foreign tycoon.

When Nelson was running for governor, he sold his Washington mansion to Lebanese business tycoon Rafik Hariri for $2 million more than fair-market value, raising serious questions about whether his shady deal was just a laundering scheme to hide an illegal foreign donation to his campaign.

At the time, Nelson’s campaign manager even admitted the sale would be used to fund the career politician’s campaign. So the question is: did Nelson sell his home to launder donations from a corrupt foreign tycoon?

Floridians deserve an explanation.
