Andrew Gillum Wants Ron DeSantis To Show Him Some Respect

Andrew Gillum Wants Ron DeSantis To Show Him Some Respect

When a businessman filed two ethics complaints alleging that Gillum traveled for free with lobbyist friends to Costa Rica and faux developers to NY but failed to disclose it, the mayor again said he was innocent.

The FBI is investigating whether the city directed redevelopment funds at specific projects to favor friends and acquaintances.

Details of the investigation are not yet public but a series of subpoenas issued in 2017 did not name Gillum or implicate him in any crime. DeSantis went after Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, Fla., for lying about receiving a ticket to the musical, "Hamilton", from an undercover FBI agent investigating his office for corruption. But the more than 80 pages of records released Friday led to additional questions about Gillum's coziness with the former lobbyist and his clients.

Gillum wasted no time turning Wednesday's news of pipe bombs sent to Democratic figures into an attack on President Donald Trump and DeSantis. "Why would an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent posing as a contractor give him a $1,000 ticket to Hamilton?". "I arrived at that theater and received my ticket from my brother".

Brad Reed is a news writer at Raw Story.

"These messages only confirm what we have said all along", Gillum claimed. "Have you seen Hamilton?". I am not gonna let the media smear me like they like to do with so many other people. And not only do I wish you every success in becoming Governor of Florida, I wish heartily that you could teach some more Democratic politicians to get the job done with the same directness, incisiveness, and vigor that you display. Gillum said he supports a referendum on the ballot next month that automatically would restore voting rights to most ex-cons.

Corey (the lobbyist): "That would be epic!" Additionally, almost 1.48 million people have voted by mail. Adam Corey is one of the owners of the restaurant, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

Emails show Corey billed "Mike Miller", who happened to be an undercover FBI agent investigating Tallahassee corruption, for the $4,300 tab. The texts also showed that he stayed in a NY hotel room purchased by Miller. He'll need to have an answer come Wednesday night. "And as far as I know that was the deal". The records include emails with Gillum asking Corey to upgrade his room at a Westin hotel, but they do not show who ultimately paid the bill.

Gillum maintains that the trip was purely for entertainment purposes and he paid his own way.

The race between Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum, who would be the state's first black governor, has been fraught with racism.

Mark Herron, the attorney registered as an agent for Forward Florida when the committee initially opened, did not immediately respond for comment. "I think that shows he has something to hide".

After the bar fight accusation, the ad goes on to say that "in Congress, DeSantis didn't hold back the punches either".
