Florida Dem Gov Candidate Andrew Gillum Is Desperate To Rush FBI Investigation

It's becoming more and more obvious that Gillum has a problem on his hands...

What's going on with Florida Democrat gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum? 

The Tallahassee Democrathas the details: 

“Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum told reporters Saturday he has communicated with the FBI about the need for its investigation to conclude to avoid influencing the governor’s race…

‘My hope is that they will move quickly,’ he said…

Gillum’s comments…followed the public release of a photograph showing Gillum on a boat in New York City with a man believed to be an undercover FBI agent who posed as a developer named Mike Miller and one of the mayor’s longtime friends, lobbyist Adam Corey. Gillum acknowledged he did not know at the time that Miller was possibly a federal agent.

Gillum declined to answer questions from the Tallahassee Democrat about his trip to New York last year and his encounters with Miller, who first appeared in Tallahassee in 2015 as part of an FBI probe into possible public corruption.”

What does this FBI investigation mean for the Gillum campaign? Only time will tell. 

WXIA: Is Mike Miller a developer from Atlanta? Or Someone else? 

At the time of the Power Plant meeting in July 2016, “Mike Miller” already was a year into what appears to be a massive, multi-year investigation of local politicians, their friends and millions of dollars in taxpayer redevelopment money. In the crosshairs may be some of Florida’s most ambitious political climbers, including its mayor, who has his sights set on the Governor’s Mansion.

Whispers of corruption are commonplace in the one-degree-of-separation government town halfway between Pensacola and Jacksonville. Teeming with lobbyists, professors and political sophisticates, local officials can barely keep an arms-length from those who seek to influence them. Over the years, rumored FBI investigations have come and gone without any charges.

This time, however, political gadflies are bracing for indictments to come as sure as August afternoon thunderstorms.
