  • Florida gov hopeful reportedly got Hamilton tickets from undercover FBI agent

"Andrew Gillum and his allies continue to lie on the campaign trail", said Stephen Lawson, spokesman for the DeSantis campaign, in a statement.

Details of the investigation are not yet public but a series of subpoenas issued in 2017 did not name Gillum or implicate him in any crime. But Gillum, who maintains his innocence, recently posted to Facebook: "These messages only confirm what we have said all along".

"This campaign is powered by the people, as evidenced by the almost 100,000 small-dollar, grassroots donors supporting Mayor Gillum and his vision for Florida".

"It was my first glimpse of what it meant for a family to have to worry about what it meant to be safe and secure and have to worry about your own protection out of fear that maybe one of those missiles might land on your family", he said.

Miller, who was posing as a developer interested in working on Tallahassee's south side, is believed to be an undercover FBI agent investigating political corruption in Tallahassee. The agents had also arranged for a boat tour of New York Harbor.Mr. Gillum, who was in New York on business, initially declined the hotel room offer, but then told Mr. Corey he did need a place to stay for the second night."I was mistaken, I think I will need a room tomorrow night", Mr. Gillum wrote to Mr. Corey on August 10, 2016."O.K.", replied Mr. Corey, who had previously asked Mr. Miller for separate rooms for himself, Mr. Gillum, and Mr. Gillum's brother.

For the second time this week, Tallahassee Mayor and gubernatorial hopeful Andrew Gillum is facing scrutiny after records show an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent helped pay for a fundraiser for his political action committee.

Gillum responded with "Awesome news about Hamilton".

Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum on Monday hit back hard at President Donald Trump after the president accused him of being a "thief" on Twitter.

Kise, who has been has been compiling the records in response to a Florida Commission on Ethics probe looking into whether Gillum accepted gifts worth more than $100 without disclosing them during the NY trip and a trip to Costa Rica.

"All this stuff that they say, I've got to let them know; anti-police?" Burgess said this would be a defining moment in Gillum's campaign.

"We did go to see Hamilton".

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. Adam Corey became a lobbyist.

Trump has taken a keen interest in the race for Florida governor, especially after his personally endorsed candidate, Ron DeSantis, got repeatedly thrashed at debates with Gillum last week.

Gillum's PAC has also taken in $4 million from the national Democratic Governors Association, which also counts many of Gillum's biggest backers among its top donors. "I think I will need a room tomorrow night". While he hasn't commented on the new documents, during Wednesday's debate he referred to a Jay-Z song when he said, "Florida's got 99 problems, and "Hamilton" isn't one of them". "I know that many strong supporters of Israel have come out to endorse him, so I have no reason to believe he's not going to be a strong supporter of Israel". "Some people lost access", DeSantis said.
