(CNN) - Democrats are going up with a hard hitting ad against Florida Republican gubernatorial nominee Rick Scott.
The commercial, which includes clips from various Florida law enforcement officials, calls into question Scott's management of two health care companies that went on to face legal problems.
"Take it from prosecutors who know – Rick Scott just can't be trusted," says Florida State Attorney Michael McAuliffe, in the ad.
"Scott claims he didn't know the company he led was systematically defrauding Medicare," adds Florida State Attorney William Cervone, who the commercial notes is a Republican.
"Ripping off seniors and taxpayers," continues Tampa Police Sergeant Paul Southwick.
Scott, a multi-millionaire faced similar attacks during a bruising primary campaign with Florida Attorney General and former Rep. Bill McCollum. Scott's now facing off in the general election against Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink, the Democratic nominee.
The new ad was put out by the Florida Democratic Party, which has been assisted by the Democratic Governors Association. The DGA says they've contributed $4 million this cycle to state party.
Sink's campaign is also running an ad that says that there are "a lot of questions about Rick Scott. The company he ran was fined."
Both Sink, and McCollum before her, have slammed Scott for running a health care provider, Columbia/HCA, that was fined $1.7 billion for alleged fraud.
In August Scott told CNN Chief National Correspondent John King that "my opponent said that in the primary, and he lost," adding that when you're in business and things go wrong, "you should take responsibility as the CEO. I do."
In a statement to CNN, Scott's campaign responded to the new ad by Florida Democrats, saying "down in the polls it's no surprise that Alex Sink would release another rehash of the same charges that failed during the primary. Especially with today's news of her involvement in fraud at Nations Bank."
And the Scott campaign is up with a new commercial of their own accusing Sink of wrongdoing: "Alex Sink's own company was fined $6.75 million by the U.S. attorney and fined for 'deceptive sales practices.' Sink's bank was forced to pay back $30 million for fraud charges."
The most recent polls, including a CNN/Time/Opinion Research Corporation survey, indicate that Scott has a single digit advantage among likely voters in Florida.
