New Report: Democrat Andrew Gillum’s Driving Records Are Tied To An “Active Criminal Investigation” In Florida

For months, Gillum has struggled to explain why an FBI probe and a state ethics investigation are looming over his campaign.

Even more evidence has emerged suggesting that Florida Democrat gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum is dealing with an active criminal investigation.

For months, Gillum has struggled to explain why an FBI probe and a state ethics investigation are looming over his campaign.

Now, according to the Florida Department of Highway and Motor Vehicles, Andrew Gillum’s driving records can’t be released to the public because they’re tied to an “active criminal investigation.”

This is another serious red flag for Gillum and raises serious questions about his candidacy. It also begs this serious question: Why would any agency need to review Andrew Gillum’s file OVER 100 times as part of an ongoing criminal investigation?

Politico has more:

Driving records related to Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum are tied to an ‘active criminal investigation” and can’t be released unredacted by the state, according to an audit housed with the Florida Department of Highway and Motor Vehicles.

POLITICO requested a listing of the number of times Gillum’s record has been accessed by governments or law enforcement agencies. The listing shows Gillum’s records have been accessed 106 times, but a vast majority were redacted by the department, and no specific information could be provided.

The records, which span 2014 to 2018, are related to the state’s Driver and Vehicle Information Database, which includes information related to a range of information on a person’s driver history. The database can be accessed by law enforcement agencies and local governments.

‘Reasons agencies need access may include performing investigations or gathering information as part of their official duties,’ said Beth Frady, a DHSMV spokeswoman.

The public records exemption cited by the department for not releasing details to POLITICO relates to records tied to an ‘active criminal intelligence information and active criminal investigative information.”

‘In accordance with Florida law, active criminal intelligence information and active investigative information are exempt from public record,’ Frady said when asked for additional information.

Gillum, who is mayor of Tallahassee, has long been dogged by an FBI investigation into the city’s Community Redevelopment Agency.
