Gillum Releases Second Statement Related to Miami Beach Incident

Gillum Releases Second Statement Related to Miami Beach Incident

Listed below is Andrew Gillum’s statement released on Sunday, March 15, 2020:

“After conversation with my family and deep reflection, I have made the decision to seek help, guidance and enter a rehabilitation facility at this time. This has been a wake-up call for me. Since my race for governor ended, I fell into a depression that has led to alcohol abuse. I witnessed my father suffer from alcoholism and I know the damaging effects it can have when untreated. I also know that alcoholism is often a symptom of deeper struggles. I am committed to doing the personal work to heal fully and show up in the world as a more complete person.”

“I now need to firmly focus on myself and my family. I will be stepping down from all public facing roles for the foreseeable future.”

“I want to apologize to my family, friends and the people of Florida who have supported me and put their faith in me over the years.”

“I ask that you respect my and my family’s privacy during this time. Thank you.”

    Release the ‘Body’ cam footage. This ain’t alcohol, this ain’t depression. This is exactly what this person has been all along.

    The main takeaway here is Conservatives/Republicans are Christians and believe in forgiveness.
    Those on the left wether they know it or not are evil and worship The Devil even if they occupy a pew down at the church on Sunday.
    Had Gillum been a Conservative/Republican the wrath of the Media worshiping Democrats/Liberals/Bernie Bros/Good ‘Ole Joe Biden folks would have dropped like a firestorm on the whole wide world.
    Conservatives are a forgiving sort of folks for the most part.
    Sit back and watch how Conservatives (The Adults of the planet) behave on this Gillum issue and compare it to how you know liberals would just lose their minds and act the fool had Gillum been a Conservative/Republican.
    You are forgiven Mr. Gillum. Go get better and focus on the needs of your family Sir. Get well and be blessed Sir.

    Maybe Pence should dial him up at the alcohol rehab?

    He probably needs an HIV and coronavirus test and while the blood test is being done check for the meth although it only lasts in the blood for 3 days BUT take some of his hair and test it, it lasts for weeks in hair follicles(just saying) … while he’s in rehab she’ll be getting a divorce attorney and keep the kids away from him too. Still wondering why he got to walk away from the scene and not charged with possession.. what the hell happened that night?????

      Does he always get drunk with gay male prostitutes?
      I wonder if he’s paying for the rehab with the campaign funds he held back.
      George Soros is looking for a new horse to ride.
      Did our Sheriff know about Andrew’s issues? If so, why did he continue to support him? If not, he’s a pretty sorry Sheriff.

    As Joe B would say “Come on man”. This is not about you or your father’s relationship to alcohol. You weren’t found passed out on a bench in Coconut Grove after a wedding gathering.The issue is your narcissistic personality. It’s not all about you and what you want. I am 180 degrees from you on almost all things political but you do deserve forgiveness. Hope for nothing but the best for you and your families future.

    The Democratic Party, the pastors who supported you and your following failed you.

    They worship you rather than worship our Lord and Saviour and shame on all of them.

    They failed to counsel you and hold you accountable and you have had a long hard fall and it may fall even more. So rehab is a good place for you to hopefully turn yourself around.

    I would say that the local Democratic Party failed you the most by not holding you accountable and quite frankly they used you. You did not have the experience nor the temperament nor the humanity.

    May you go forward mend your ways find peace and healing.

    All is not lost as you have the most beautiful family. Do it for Jesus and do it for them and don’t look back and you will be okay.

        Gabordi stopped publishing mugshots to save all his benefactors from embarassment. He has to check in at City Hall every morning at 4AM to be told what to publish. Or not to publish.

    In the words of Brett K, I like beer. However, I’ve never been so drunk as to not be able to speak, especially as a friend is overdosing. Oh, that’s right…he was depressed after losing the election to be our governor. It’s time that he hung up his Politics Hat and got to work, like the rest of us.

      He must stay out of politics if he is to recover. Politics is like being an entertainer with public life exposure for ugly people and thats what got him into his twisted life.
      Only prob is; hes never ever held a real job and has zero marketable skills to make a real employer want to hire him. The only job he can get is a fake job from a corrupt individual that will drive him back into wrong doing once again.
      But theres a light at the near term end of the tunnel. Unless the FBI or Fed Judge Hinkel let him off with an inappropriate slap on the wrist…the prison systems have some great vocational training programs.
      He can get the skills to come back out and rejoin polite society as a productive cook, a barber, or another of the great skills they teach in prison.

      If he goes back into politics or as a fake news talking head he will spiral right back into that Miami hotel room life style.

    My opinion only…he can make up any false addiction problem he wants and proceed through a phony ‘rehab’ program for his cover. soros or cnn will pick up the tab…so no cost to him. This guy is slime and with his background, it looks like he’s going to stay that way.

    Something to think about: WHEN, in YOUR Lifetime has there EVER been, 2 Sargent’s, 2 Lieutenant’s, 2 Detective’s AND 3 Captains ALL at a Minor Crime Scene such as this one? EVER? Those 9 People should be Investigated PLUS, why NO Charges. Usually, who ever Rented the Room is responsible and gets Arrested.

    We will either see a taped confession from Andy in next few weeks, or he will take himself out of the game. It was his choice, but don’t know which way he decided. No more deals.

    Dan Gelber’s third world Florida cut-out leftist Miami-Dade County is counting on Governor DeSantis to show typical RINO/Never Trumper/we can cross the isle and work with the leftists/cant we all just go along to get along/typical Republican response of turning a blind eye to truth, justice, and the American way here with the “Gillum Incident” and just roll over and let Dan Gelber scratch DeSantis’ belly untill DeSantis starts jacking his happy leg like a young puppy response….might have worked out just fine for Dan Gelber ya know…but that BS was typical Republican methods prior to President Donald J. TRUMP…was’ent it Danny Boy!!!!
