A Story From Tallahassee Reports Published Thursday Offers Details About An Fbi Investigation Into Possible Corruption In The City Of Tallahassee While Andrew Gillum, The Democratic Nominee In Florida’s Upcoming Gubernatorial Election, Was Mayor.
According to the story by Steve Stewart, FBI agents posing as developers made payments to Andrew Gillum’s brother, Marcus Gillum, as part of an effort to show they were seeking business with the city of Tallahassee.
“The payments were said to be in the thousands of dollars per month,” Stewart wrote. “The length of the engagement was not known.”
“Marcus Gillum’s name has surfaced in relation to the federal investigation several times,” he added. “Most notably he was mentioned in public reports as part of a group that vacationed in New York in August 2016. The group included FBI agents posing as developers, Adam Corey, and Mayor Andrew Gillum. Adam Corey, the former campaign treasurer to Mayor Andrew Gillum, is a central figure in the federal investigation and, at the time of the New York Trip, was a city and a city vendor.”- READ MORE
Surprise Democrat Primary Winner Andrew Gillum In Florida Had Support From Two Of The Left’s Biggest Financiers: George Soros And Tom Steyer.
Gillum courted the two billionaires extensively, meeting them in California to earn their support.
“If I’m remembering it correctly, it was, ‘We don’t know if you can win, but we would like what it could represent,’” Gillum told the New Yorker, recalling the meetings. “I interpreted it to mean that it would be significant to see a person of color taken seriously in a statewide race.”
In return, he received millions from the two billionaires and their allies.
Thursday, Steyer and Soros announced a $650,000 boost into Gillum’s campaign, together with their donors.
