The report, shown below, indicates that the PAC paid Pittman Law Group $5,000 in September, 2019. For the year-to-date, Pittman Law Group has received $70,000 from the PAC for legal and political consulting.
Gillum has been criticized for his 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.
In March, 2019, Gillum announced he would use the campaign funds to register 1 million voters in an effort to make the state swing blue in the 2020 presidential race.
During Gillum’s gubernatorial campaign, Pittman was paid through his company ESP Media for media consulting services totaling approximately $700,000.
In January 2019, it was announced that Jamie Van Pelt would he the president of ESPMedia. Van Pelt was Gillum’s former chief of staff while he was mayor of Tallahassee.
