Since securing his spot on the ballot for governor in Florida against Republican former Rep. Ron DeSantis, Democrat Andrew Gillum has been facing scrutiny for accepting lavish gifts from shady sources.
At the forefront are a set of “Hamilton” tickets given to Gillum during a 2016 trip to New York City.
In a September 4th press release, Gillum contends that his brother Marcus gave him the tickets.
“After the trip, Mayor Gillum learned Marcus Gillum had obtained that ticket in a swap with Adam Corey for a concert ticket,” the press release said.
But newly released text messages between Gillum and former lobbyist Adam Corey show that to be untrue.
