Not so long ago, Andrew Gillum was THE rising star in the Democrat Party.
He took Governor Ron DeSantis to the brink in 2018, losing the gubernatorial election by less than 40,000 votes.
Even so, the former mayor of Tallahassee was tagged as the next big thing in the Democrat Party.
Then he fell from grace, and he keeps falling.
Reports surfaced late Wednesday that Gillum had been indicted on conspiracy and multiple fraud charges in conjunction with his campaign and another associate.
Fall From Grace
Gillum completely went off the rails after losing the election to DeSantis.
Not long after the election, he was found with a substance that was allegedly crystal methamphetamine.
When he was found, he had been passed out in a hotel room with two other men.
The Justice Department, on the indictment, stated, “The Indictment further alleges the defendants used third parties to divert a portion of those funds to a company owned by Lettman-Hicks, who then fraudulently provided the funds, disguised as payroll payments, to Gillum for his personal use.”
Gillum says the indictment is politically motivated and that he did nothing wrong during his campaign.
He stated, “I have spent the last 20 years of my life in public service and continue to fight for the people.
“Every campaign I’ve run has been done with integrity. Make no mistake that this case is not legal, it is political.”
So do we believe the DOJ here or a man that was allegedly taking meth while fornicating with strange men in hotel rooms while his wife was home with the kids?
All I know is the people of Florida truly dodged a bullet when they elected DeSantis over Gillum.
