Super attorney John Morgan went after former gubernatorial candidate and Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum on twitter today over Gillum’s decision to keep approximately $3.5 million in campaign funds rather than spend it in an effort to defeat Ron DeSantis in last years Florida governor’s race.
At 9:31 am, Morgan began a series of tweets:
.@AndrewGillum this isn’t a “circular firing squad” this is one person’s political suicide. Our firm gave you $2MM and you know how much I raised from others. To find out that $3.5MM was not used in a dead heat race is stunning.
To learn that you plan to use all of our money entrusted to you to promote yourself for your next race is galling. If you use that money & pay restitution for felons who paid their dues to society you could register 200K people in a day! If you do that I’ll put up the next $3.5MM
.@AndrewGillum this is not about you and your future political ambitions. This is about doing what is right and ethical. Can you ever imagine asking any of us to support you again?
Rick Scott poured $10MM of his own money in the last week because his was a dead heat. He won. You lost. Don’t lose again. #ForThePeople
Next at 11:00 a.m., Morgan went after Gillum’s goal of registering voters:
Who will be counting the million voters @AndrewGillum is registering? Who will be auditing the expenses down to the penny including 5-star lodging and meals?
The most sure way to register new voters is to pay freed felons fines. But then all of the money is gone quickly and you have to pay your own expenses out of your own pocket. This bullsh*t is yet another reason I choose to be NPA. #PoliticiansSuck#AndrewIsDOA
Next, at 12:45 p.m., Morgan gets personal and asks for a refund.
I don’t think @AndrewGillum has ever had a job, but he should get one. Or maybe use the money to make Mexico pay to build the wall… About as likely as him registering 1 million people who hate lima beans.
Next at 1:45 p.m., Morgan again lashes out at Gillum and accuses him of enhancing his lifestyle with campaign donations.
.@AndrewGillum has dedicated his life to himself. Tell me what job he has ever had? How much money did you give him? We gave him $2MM. BS is BS no matter what party! The trouble with parties is they stand silent when their side is acting badly. I won’t. Too damn old.
