Florida Politics is reporting that Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum has spent approximately $25,000 on legal services tied to his use of city owned software to send out political emails.
Tallahassee Reports, after obtaining information through a public records request, was the first to report about Gillum’s use of the NGP VAN software for political purposes.
About $2,100 of the expenditure came from the Gillum campaign, with the remaining money being paid out through his political committee, “Florida Forward.”
The legal services were provided by Stearns Weaver Miller Weissler located in Tallahassee.
The Leon County Sheriff’s Office recently completed an investigation and turned over the information to the State Attorney Jack Campbell who has not made any public announcements about the investigation.
