(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) Andrew Gillum, who ran for governor of Florida in 2018 against Ron DeSantis, was called “a proven fighter with the courage and determination to stand up for Florida families,” by former President Barack Obama.
Four years later, Andrew Gillum has been charged with “a twenty-one count indictment, according to the Department of Justice.
“The Indictment alleges that between 2016 and 2019, defendants Gillum and Lettman-Hicks conspired to commit wire fraud, by unlawfully soliciting and obtaining funds from various entities and individuals through false and fraudulent promises and representations that the funds would be used for a legitimate purpose,” the DOJ wrote.
Furthermore, the DOJ alleged that “the defendants used third parties to divert a portion of those funds to a company owned by Lettman-Hicks, who then fraudulently provided the funds, disguised as payroll payments, to Gillum for his personal use.”
The DOJ has also charged Gillum with lying to the FBI. He faces up to 25 years in jail for his criminal activity.
This is not Gillum’s first scandal.
The incident Prompted Gillum to hold a press conference, where, standing next to his wife, he confessed his homosexual desires to the media, reported the Huffington Post.
Gillum will be represented by leftist lawfare henchman Marc Elias, who has a long history of contesting elections, interfering with redistricting attempts, campaign fundraising violations and fabricating the Steele dossier.
It turns out that Obama was correct when he said that Gillum’s attempted run for governor was “the most important election of our lifetime,” because “the character of our country is on the ballot.”
