BREAKING NEWS: Andrew Gillum’s Brother Paid by Undercover FBI Agents Posing as Developers

People close to the federal investigation have indicated that Mayor Andrew Gillum’s brother, Marcus Gillum, was paid by undercover federal agents who were posing as developers.  The payments were made to Marcus Gillum in their role as developers seeking business with the city of Tallahassee. The payments were said to be in the thousands of dollars per month. The length of the engagement was not known.

When contacted by Tallahassee Reports, Marcus Gillum refused to comment on the FBI investigation.

Mayor Andrew Gillum has refused to communicate with TR since 2015. Mayor Andrew Gillum won the Democratic primary for governor of Florida on August 28th.

Marcus Gillum’s name has surfaced in relation to the federal investigation several times. Most notably he was mentioned in public reports as part of a group that vacationed in New York in August 2016. The group included FBI agents posing as developers, Adam Corey, and Mayor Andrew Gillum.

Adam Corey, the former campaign treasurer to Mayor Andrew Gillum, is a central figure in the federal investigation and, at the time of the New York Trip, was a city lobbyists and a city vendor.

The FBI investigation was revealed in June 2017 after a federal grand jury served subpoenas to the city of Tallahassee. The subpoenas demanded records involving eight local business people and a number of their companies. Corey and the city-subsidized Edison restaurant, which he co-owns with other investors, were named in the subpoenas.

The trip to New York was first reported by WCTV in August 2017 . Following WCTV’s initial report, Tallahassee Reports broke new information about the outing.

At the time of the trip Marcus Gillum told TR that he was in New York working for the People of the American Way. When asked about the FBI investigation, Gillum said “he would never comment” and ended the call.

Mayor Andrew Gillum has refused to answer questions posed by a Tallahassee Democrat reporter about who paid for activities on the trip. He later said he “either paid his own way or had his brother Marcus, who was also on the trip, pay some of their expenses.”

The Tallahassee Democrat wrote in 2017 that the “FBI may have tried to entice Mayor Andrew Gillum through one of his close friends to see a Broadway show, catch a Mets game and stay at a hotel in New York City as part of its investigation into alleged public corruption in Tallahassee.”

Payments to Marcus Gillum -who was on the New York trip – would have also been an enticement for Gillum to meet with FBI agents posing as developers.

The trip was the subject of a complaint filed with the Florida Commission on Ethics and is still under investigation.

Following the trip to New York, people attending FSU football games during the 2016 season indicated that Marcus Gillum received tickets for a stadium skybox provided by Adam Corey. At times, these people said Marcus Gillum was in the skybox with the undercover FBI agents who were posing as developers.

Adam Corey’s FSU football skybox was revealed as a central part of the federal investigation when TR reported that the undercover FBI agents purchased four tickets from Corey. It was later confirmed the tickets were provided to City of Tallahassee employees through Corey. The scandal led to the resignation of Tallahassee City Manager Rick Fernandez.

          Was it just a coincidence that Marcus Gillum’s last name matches the guy that the paper said was his brother, Andrew? Gillum seems a fairly unique last name. It’s not like Smith or Johnson.

    Andrew having ‘his brother pay for expenses’ on this New York trip with the FBI undercover agents with his brother accepting FBI funds concurrently is pure and simple ILLEGAL.

    Hey – isn’t Andy sharing all his Costa Rica expenses with us too? When is that gonna happen, Andy? Or do we ask your Chief of Staff Dustin to help produce those?

    Marcus Allen Gillum was charged with felony battery of a law enforcement officer in Orange County in 2005. He was subsequently convicted of resisting arrest wo violence.

    Gillum’s 4 other brothers, one deceased, are all convicted felons.

      Sadly, in some communities it’s no big deal to be in jail. In fact, some must consider it a “badge of honor”. But then someone gets angry when you bring up the subject of criminal family members (nicely proved by Todd below). In my circle of friends & relatives, not ONE has ever been in jail. I like to think that is not real unusual, but living in this city, IDK.

      Hi NoCenterAmerica! I was just mocking the liberals anger/hostility of taking things out of context and running the story over any and all media outlets. They know what DeSantis meant with his “monkey this up” comment, but still are making it a race issue while avoiding the topics central to you and me. What do you think the media would have done had DeSantis suggested a confederation of states?

    To One Breezy – this isn’t “soon as a black man win something” this has been going on for several years. The FBI has to justify extending an investigation every six months so there is obviously something worth pursuing with the corruption downtown.

    And to NoCenterAmerica, I agree that the two polarizing parties are killing this country but there is a huge distinction between “succeeding” and “seceding.”

    What I find strange is media and other far leftists all expect every registered Democrat to automatically vote Gillum in the general election. No they will not. Gillum is way too far on the nonsensical dangerous side of what it means to be a Democrat in the USA. Wealthy Democrats will throw away their ti.e and money supporting Gillum.

      That should tell you that he is NOT racist!! Shouldn’t they know? They were around him ALLL the time. They would know if he was. He helped many poor black and impoverished children on the hood. He did many great things for the inner Cities and is today as I type. You just wont hear about it on those news Stations that keep Americans divided with hatred. He gave a huge chunk to the black College fund a month in his Presidency. Way more than Obama. What did Obama do for Blacks ?..Just curious. Black and Hispanic Un-Employment is a record in history low for blacks and Hispanic, He is even working to make trade schools for the young people who are not good in school and do not want to go to college. Do your research on all fronts not just a bias place . Educate yourself with the truth.

    Good answer. What does being black have to do with a criminal , if he is one? It is what it is. Obama being black didn’t teach them anything. He did nothing for the blacks, NOTHING ,NADA!!! That is when you know they are racist . The vote for color and that is why they are still sitting i=on the same bench. If they were smart, they would vote for who will do for the entire country, even them. I guess they are content with their lives as is. That’s too bad because there is so much going on and have a chance to better themselves. Racism is an Illness and maybe one day , they might stop blaming others for their lives that hey lead.

People speaking of food stamps and convicted felons it’s more Caucasian people on food stamps and are convicted felons than any other race.Your doing what the media wants you to do , your displaying hate and racism and keeping the world divided. What if you wore born black ,Asian or Hispanic would you hate the skin your in. You have a president who has done worst things before and during his campaign but it’s congratulations to him. People are human and they make mistakes .Have you noticed the natural disasters and all of this going on in this world ?
