WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Alex Sink is speaking out about her decision to fire her top campaign advisor after an apparent cell phone slip-up.

Sink says Brian May sent her a text during a live debate on CNN's Monday night with her opponent, Republican Rick Scott.

During a commercial break, her makeup artist walked onto the stage to show her the message. A move that broke the rules of the debate.

Scott blasted Sink saying she cheated. Sink says that wasn't the case. "I turned around. My makeup artist said, 'I don't know who this came from'. Here's my phone, there's a message here, and, obviously, I looked."

So what did the text say? It allegedly advised Sink to stop Scott from blaming her for problems at a company she worked for called 'Sykes'.
