November Report: Gillum PAC Spends $240K on Lawyers Related to Federal Probe

A review of recently filed campaign reports by the Tampa Bay Times (TBT) found that Andrew Gillum’s political committee, Forward Florida, significantly increased spending on lawyers in November.

The report states that the “political committee for Andrew Gillum spent $240,000 on lawyers last month, a substantial rise in the organization’s legal expenses that coincides with a far-reaching federal investigation involving the former nominee for governor.”

The TBT reported that “Forward Florida had already spent $25,000 on legal fees every month since March, when the U.S. Attorney’s office in north Florida started dropping subpoenas that demanded information on Gillum, the Democrat’s campaign, his political committee, a wealthy donor, a charity that employed him and a former employer.”

In May of this year, the U.S. Attorney issued a federal grand jury subpoena demanding documents and emails related to Gillum’s political actvities dating back to January 2015.

The TBT reported that officials with the Forward Florida political committee acknowledged the escalating legal bills were related to complying with the federal grand jury subpoena.

    Andy, it is going to be harder to register a billion new Florida voters if you keep spending John Morgan’s money like this.

    Hold on to your hats Ladies and Gentlemen!
    Snidely is about to complement Andrew on his brilliant decision making abilities and common sense:

    In a moment of great clarity and genius level thinking Andrew saw the folly in hiring Parks and Crump or Sean Pittman to represent him in such grave circumstances.
    Good on you Andrew.
    But alas he will not slip away this time because Andrew should have locked in Tim Jansen or Steve Dobson before his partners in crime locked those 2 super attorneys in.
    Who is this Barry what’s his name attorney of Andrews anyway???

          If that is the case, why keep them sealed for 2 months?

The name you might be looking for is Barry Richards, husband of Allison Tant, the former chair of the Florida Democrat Party, hostess for Hillary, fundraiser, lobbyist, running for State House seat held by current rep. Loranne Ausley who is running for Bill Montford’s Senate Seat. To Allison Tant…….

        Well, Rocky Hanna continues to be the money man from Vegas. Tant and Richards supported Hanna in 2016.

        Rocky Hanna and his brother buying votes and influence through LLC’s. Every citizen in Tallahassee should be up in arms protesting these vile attempts at buying influence. Rocky is a power hungry ego maniac guilty of child neglect.

        Keep uncovering the unsavory misdeeds of the Hanna family. Rocky, your dirty deeds are being exposed. We all now see who you are.

      Every member of Andrew Guilty’s immediate family (including his mom) has been charged with a crime.
      Except him.

      That is about to change.

      No honor among thieves.
      Amirite, Scottie?

    WHY does it coat $240,000 for Lawyers in ONE Month if you are complying with the federal grand jury subpoena? Maybe if you were FIGHTING the federal grand jury subpoena but you said you are COMPLYING. If you are as innocent as YOU say you are, you could have just told the FBI to come over and make Copies of what ever you want.

    I hope when the million-pound craphammer finally falls on all guilty parties here (and formerly here) in Tally, it soon follows that a hammer of far greater mass in Washington lands on every Deep State plotter involved the attempted coup, and the net includes those at the very top of the former “administration” and quite possibly several high-ranking Dem-Socialist members of congress. Word is that Barr and Durham’s hammer is steadily growing in size and severity as evidence is gathered.

    It’s refreshing to see justice possibly working it’s way to the surface. Disturbing that we have to get this from a Tampa source, but it’s what we’ve grown to expect in Tally. Thank God for Tallahassee Reports!
