Andrew Gillum lost the Florida gubernatorial race and he’s losing the legal battle against ethics charges of accusations of corruption against him.
More from ABC News:
A long-simmering ethics investigation of former Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum heated up Friday when a state ethics panel said there was probable cause that Gillum violated Florida’s ethics law.
The state’s ethics commission voted in a closed-door meeting Friday that there is enough evidence to show that Gillum accepted gifts from lobbyists during his time as Tallahassee’s mayor.
Gillum narrowly lost the governor’s race to Republican Ron DeSantis last year. During the bitter contest, DeSantis pounded Gillum over the lengthy investigation that centered on trips he took to Costa Rica and New York City, including who paid for tickets to a Broadway showing of the popular musical “Hamilton.” Gillum denied the allegations during the campaign, saying at one point “I don’t need anybody handing me anything for free.”
Barry Richard, who is representing Gillum in the investigation, said his client would contest the findings before an administrative judge.
“I don’t think there’s any evidence he did anything wrong,” said Richard, a well-known Tallahassee attorney who once represented George W. Bush in the legal battles over the 2000 presidential election.
Oops! Good luck with that one, little buddy. Feel free to spread this one around since you know the mainstream media will show very little interest in a Democrat’s corruption…
