DeSantis, Gillum use different parts of name to refer to opponent

  • Democratic candidate for Florida Governor Andrew Gillum

I am not gonna let the media smear me like they like to do with so many other people. "Again, I really appreciate this".

"Did he connect with Mike Miller to thank him for co-sponsoring the food?" On Aug. 10, Corey sent Gillum a text saying, "Hey brother, just checking in with you. More and more younger people refer to people in authority in their first names", she said.

Juan-Carlos Planas, an elections law attorney and former Republican Miami-area state Representative, called the lack of reporting "a clear violation".

Gillum's Tampa supporters - like his campaign - said they weren't bothered by the disclosures. He said he's a stickler with his clients because it's something that can easily be overlooked on finance reports.

Republican Ron DeSantis' 2018 gubernatorial campaign has been marked by charges of racism from the beginning. "Mike Miller and the crew have tickets for us for Hamilton tonight at 8 p.m".

The corruption scandal surrounding Florida Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum continued to grow on Friday as newly-released documents show that an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, who posed as a developer seeking to do business with Gillum's Tallahassee government, allegedly paid thousands of dollars to support a fundraiser for Gillum's political action committee, Forward Florida.

Gillum, who has been the target of a racist robo-call campaign, was at pains to paint his opponent as a political extremist who panders to xenophobes for support. The menu included items like filet mignon, salmon mousse canapés, cocktails, and an open bar for beer catered from a restaurant owned at the time by Gillum's lobbyist friend Adam Corey.

The Gillum campaign has since released a statement saying that Gillum paid for everything. And the reputation of that man, Mayor Andrew Gillum, seems to have been bought with free tickets to Broadway blockbuster Hamilton and a sweet deal on a vacation villa in Costa Rica.

Wolves show 'no inclination to move' on Rockets' offer for Butler
Butler became unhappy with the current state of the team and the lack of financial compensation the team was offering Butler. The four-time All-Star is averaging 24.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists in four games this season.

The goal of the Atlanta trip is unknown.

Gillum has since distanced himself from Corey.

Kise said Friday that Gillum did not reimburse Corey.

"My grandmother used to say, 'A hit dog will holler, ' and it hollered through this room", Gillum said, likely lulling DeSantis into a false sense of security because Gillum brought up his grandma.

"He was asked a question by me, 'Did you pay for it?' He was indignant".

Gillum has said he's been told by the FBI that he's not the target of its investigation, but the ethics commission probe is ongoing - and unlikely to reach a conclusion before Election Day. The commission is investigating whether Gillum accepted gifts from lobbyists after a Tallahassee businessman and persistent critic of Gillum filed a complaint. When asked to return that money, he said no. Check back for updates.

This is a developing story.
