Leon County Sheriff’s Office (LSCO) Chief of Staff David Folsom announced Wednesday afternoon the LSCO investigative report on Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum is now in the hands of State Attorney Jack Campbell.
Campbell confirmed to Tallahassee Reports he had received the report but said, “I’m not going to comment about what comes from here because it is a pending criminal investigation. It is multiple pages and I have not begun to read it yet.”
Folsom said “The ball is totally in (Campbell’s) court now. The case is open until he closes it.”
On February 23, Tallahassee Reports broke the story that Gillum had allegedly spent approximately $5,000 in city funds to purchase software from democrat campaign vendor, NGP VAN. That software was allegedly used to generate campaign email for Gillum in which he mixed “Office of the Mayor” letterhead with his campaign correspondence.
Gillum later acknowledge the purchase and use of the email was a “mistake” and offered to repay the money for the software.
In early March Tallahassee Reports broke the news that an investigation into Gillum’s actions was launched by the LCSO following Campbell’s receipt of a complaint letter regarding Gillum’s alleged actions from a retired Jefferson County law enforcement officer, Paul Henry.
