Current Democrat Florida governor candidate Gillum could be under federal investigation for his previous work as mayor of Tallahassee. The Daily Wire reports:
Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who shocked pollsters when he emerged victorious in a hotly contested Democratic primary on Tuesday, may not be the “socialist” savior Florida Democrats were hoping for.
The FBI has launched an investigation into what is allegedly widespread corruption within Tallahassee city government. So far, Gillum hasn’t been named in any of the subpoenas, search warrants, or other supporting documents from the case (which accidentally leaked to press just a few months ago), but some reports seem to indicate that Gillum is, at least, under suspicion.
Hot Air points out that Gillum himself admitted just two months ago that the FBI’s investigation goes to the core of Tallahassee city government and that high-profile members of the city’s management team are involved.
Tallahassee.com reports that “longtime City Commissioner and former Mayor Scott Maddox” are implicated “in an alleged pay-for-play scheme involving his close friend Paige-Carter Smith, their lobbying firm and companies doing business with the city.”
While Gillum has attempted to race bait his opponent Ron DeSanctis, this new revelation could end up backfiring on him.
