Text Messages Show Andrew Gillum Lied About FBI & Hamilton Tickets

The Tampa Bay Times (TBT) is reporting that Andrew Gillum knew that developers -who were undercover FBI agents – provided tickets for him to attend the Broadway musical Hamilton when he was in New York city with Adam Corey.

Gillum has previously said his brother gave him the tickets.

The information was contained in records released today by Corey’s lawyer, Chris Kise, just two weeks before the election. The state ethics commission issued a subpoena for the records just last week.

From TBT:

The text messages show that, contrary to what his campaign has said, Gillum knew the tickets came from “Mike Miller,” who was an FBI agent posing as a developer looking into city corruption.

“Mike Miller and the crew have tickets for us for Hamilton tonight at 8 p.m.,” Corey texted Gillum on Aug. 10, 2016.
“Awesome news about Hamilton,” Gillum replied, according to the records.

Tallahassee Reports was the first to report about Gillum attending the play while on the New York trip. The trip has become the focus of an ethics investigation and is tied to the FBI investigation into local corruption in Tallahassee.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis asked Gillum about the trip during the CNN debate.

Gillum said, “First of all, I am a grown man,” Gillum replied. “My wife and I take vacations and we pay for our own vacations … I don’t take free trips from anybody.”

    1. (In thick Boris and Natasha accent:) Congratulations Mr. Selvidge, our Kremlin Operative running this site is compromised by your unusually perceptive deductions. Comrade Stewart is much disappointing us and will be “relieved” of his post soon. Then we will make Big Trouble for Moose and Squirrel.

  1. So – we now have gillum caught in at least two lies, he knowingly accepted Hamilton play tickets (a bribe from an FBI “developer” posing to get city favors from gillum) and he did not pay for his trip to Costa Rica, another bribe. AND gillum’s brother and sister are suspected of 3rd degree felonies for voter fraud while claiming FL residence at an invalid address that was previously owned by gillum. It’s not looking real good for little andrew.

  2. Sounds like a “conspiracy theory” to me!!! It’s ironic of the timing and it sounds like someone is “grasping for straws” to deter others from voting for Mayor Andrew Gillum. I believe in Mayor Gillum and his leadership ability to lead Florida to greater heights. He doesn’t have to stoop to low levels of degrading someone to win. His record speaks for himself. I don’t believe Mayor Gillum would knowingly accept anything from uncover FBI agents and why would his “close friend” Adam Corey put him in that alleged situation? I’m going to research further into these alleged accusations of Mayor Gillum going to see a Broadway Musical in New York with “free” tickets offered to him and his colleagues. Politician or not, raise your hand if you never received anything “free” (football tickets, movie tickets, trips, dinner, etc) that was offered to you by anyone? I’ll wait…! I’m sure if we research Ron DeSantis, Rick Scott, Donald Trump and many others records, I’m sure we will find corruption, lies, theft and a lot of unethical things. Hey look at the President of the States who has been accused of groping women, conspiring with Russia, lying, and going against America itself!!! I will take my chance with Mayor Andrew Gillum #letsbringithome

    1. Gillum and Corey schemed to get Corey a two-million-dollar payout with tax payer money. The City Commission as co-conspirators.

      Whatever else they were doing which they probably were will probably be known soon. But we do know that the FBI posed as undercover agents as developers and Corey and Gillum took the bait, unless Corey was working with them, but, Andrew Gillum took the bait.

      He accepted monies and gifts that he was not entitled to and are illegal. Instead of staying home with his wife and children, tending to the needs of his City, such as crime, hurricane management, the economy… Andrew Gillum made the personal choice to not focus on what he took an oath to focus on, but focus on himself and erich himself illegally. THAT IS A FACT!

      Why does a man with a family go on junkets with a single man? The two men wear clothes that are two sizes too small sit together on a boat with their arms around each other and their legs touching each other’s bare legs

      I hope we don’t see the videos!

      Now further questions arise.

      Are the trips that Corey and Gillum take together paid for from the 2 million dollars Corey received from the city taxpayers with Gillum’s vote?

      I would like to see the 2017 taxes by Andrew Gillum and spouse.

      I would like to see receipts and cancelled checks for the money’s Gillum said he paid to Charities on his taxes

      Gillum is in a lot of trouble, he took bribes and monies illegally. He lied to the FBI he lied to the United States of America on public TV many times. He lied to newspapers that endorsed him, etc.

      He can’t control crime, he can’t control a lot of things.

      If by some fluke he is elected his administration will probably be one that doesn’t last very long because he’ll probably be going to federal prison very soon.

    2. Ms. Carolyn, the difference between mr. gillum and Pres. Trump is that we have lots of verified, documented evidence of corruption for mr. gillum. Same for hillary and most of the obama administration. For Pres. Trump (despite millions of dollars and an army of Dem-Socialist lawyers working 24-7 on this), we have NO evidence of wrongdoing on Pres Trump. If there was, the MSM would have spent millions of hours of broadcast time and thousands of gallons of newspaper ink to blare it out. If your “research” manages to find something on Pres. Trump, Ron DeSantis, or Rick Scott, I’m sure the MSM will be deeply embarassed that they missed whatever you find.

    1. When you have no ideas and no good solutions, that is what you have to do to get votes. Unfortunately, it works most of the time!

  3. Gillum admits he knew the tickets were a “gift” from the FBI. Rocky Hanna admitted he purposely mislead the FBI. Let’s not make the same mistake twice by electing those that purposely mislead others. Let’s not elect those that subvert the truth, mislead others, cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars on investigations to cover up their own conflicts and embarrassing behaviors. Right Rocky? Andrew, how about in the next debate, start by stating the truth about your behavior.
