So we now have Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum winning the Florida Democrat primary election for Governor.

Big upset election and he has the backing of Socialists including Bernie Sanders.

Ooopps but wait..........😃

He really IS a Democrat where it always counts....corruption and Federal investigations !!

Landslide 😃 among Democrats



Democrat Nominee For Florida Gov. Candidate Under Investigation

Tallahassee Democrat Mayor Andrew Gillum pulled the upset on Tuesday and won Florida’s Democratic primary. Now, he will face-off against Republican primary winner Rep. Ron DeSantis — the conservative firebrand who has been endorsed by President Donald Trump — in the general election to be the state’s next governor.

But while Democrats are celebrating Gillum’s victory, he’s currently under federal investigation for reportedly lying to investigators and giving taxpayer money to a friend who previously served as his campaign manager. As Democrats jumped for joy that their candidate won Tuesday, a new round of subpoenas had already been delivered in the corruption probe.

In 2015, the FBI launched an investigation into Tallahassee’s city hall and top government officials as part of an ongoing corruption probe. A portion of the federal investigation pertains to Gillum and his longtime campaign manager, whose restaurant reportedly illegally received tax money.

The current Republican governor presided over what might be the largest defraudment of US taxpayers by a company ever. Rick Scott resigned 8 days after the initial FBI raid and the company eventually paid out something like $2 billion to settle everything.

He got elected twice.

Oh You mean Rick Scott? He then parlayed $75M of that ill-gotten gains to buy the Governorship. Remember the Flori-Duh testing of Welfare Recipients? Did You know the Crook Scott was underselling Fl hospitals to the tune of $116 on average for the drug tests that they had to buy to use...? All those concierge Dr./Strip Mall Dr./UrgentCare™ he owns...

Now why would a guy pay $75Million for a job that pays $237k/yr?


Now He is running for Senator...

Looks like Mayor Gillum is going to have to up his game if he wants to be governor in Florida. Being a small time crook just isn't going to impress the infamous Florida Man.

Surely something like this isn’t a problem for Trumpers.

If he’s guilty of corruption, then he should be dealt Justice.

I say let the FBI do their job.

I’m just curious why it matters to Republicans if he is under investigation (or the people around him, which is more what the Tallahassee newspaper is saying)? Seriously? Or is the FBI only “good” when it attacks the tribal enemies?

Meh.

the democrat's going hard left is going to sink them most minorities don't want to live in countries like the ones their parents escaped *cough cough* socialist or communist

also American born people actually do all want freedom even though the economic conditions the majority of them are experiencing are not as positive as it looks on the outside thus they are just looking for answers
