OOPS: Dems New Socialist Hero in Florida May Be Under Investigation By the FBI

Published

on

I was going to say that maybe the new Democratic candidate for governor in Florida may not quite be the figure he’s been touting himself to be…but as a socialist-minded politician, potentially being shrouded in corruption and cover-up definitely fits the bill for a Marxist of any stripe.

Not to mention a powerful Democrat.

So yeah…this actually makes a lot of sense.

Andrew Gillum was the surprise winner of the Flordia gubernatorial race this week who has caught the attention of the nation as yet another unpredicted upset by a far-left candidate in an election an establishment Democrat had been projected to win; the first, of course, being Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who may be more of a favorite of the right than the left at this point for all her brilliantly hilarious gaffes.

Gillum’s campaign, however, has a sizable hurdle to pass that progressives worry his Republican opponent, Ron DeSantis, may take full advantage of.

The FBI has been conducting an investigation of pay-for-play corruption out of the mayor’s office in Tallahassee, of which Gillum is currently mayor.

Whoopsie!

The investigation, the Tallahassee Democrat reported yesterday, has been going on for three years. Gillum claims he’s not a target, but he is very closely connected to agencies that are, as he admitted in an interview two months ago:

“I have zero tolerance for corruption and inappropriate or illegal behavior, and the last several months there appears to be an FBI investigation into something we thought was writ large in our government, the CRA, which I am chair of,” Gillum said during a six-minute conversation on the subject.

But an FBI search warrant released publicly by accident in February was “fairly telling,” he said. The search warrant names [commissioner Scott] Maddox and Downtown Improvement Authority Executive Director Paige-Carter Smith, his former chief of staff, and Governance, the consulting firm Maddox founded but sold to Carter-Smith.

The search warrant detailed an alleged bribery scheme involving Carter-Smith, Maddox and Governance. In it, the FBI alleged Maddox took official acts to benefit clients of Governance in exchange for payments.

“We pulled that document down and it showed at least an accusation of one of my colleagues having taken money potentially in exchange for a set of votes on something that came before the commission,” Gillum said. “This is the government’s argument and we have yet to hear the other side of the argument and he is entitled to that.”

“That doesn’t exactly sound like ‘zero tolerance,'” Hot Air points out, “especially three years into the investigation.”

Not a great idea, y’all…

The worst thing that can happen right now is for liberal politicians to go after every single police department over the actions of one officer. But they’re going to do it anyway. In Los Angeles, upwards of $150 million may soon be diverted from the LAPD. In Minneapolis, it could get even wilder. From New York Post: Members of the Minneapolis City Council pledged to “dismantle” the city’s police department in the wake of worldwide protests over the killing of George Floyd. Council President Lisa Bender joined several other members in promises to drastically change how public safety is upheld in the city. Bender’s tweet: https://twitter.com/lisabendermpls/status/1268644819628224513?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1268644819628224513&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fnypost.com%2F2020%2F06%2F04%2Fminneapolis-city-council-members-pledge-to-dismantle-police-department%2F Rep.

The proposal comes amid another day of protests that drew thousands in Los Angeles. Continued: The legislation would cut between $100 million and $150 million in funding from the LAPD’s 2020-21 budget.

CNN Guest: ‘White Kids Don’t Deserve Innocence, Childhood’ [Video]

Dude. Come on.

His name is Tim Wise, but he’s clearly not the sharpest knife in the drawer. According to the CNN guest, white kids should basically be abused so they’ll feel how black kids feel. This is how the liberal mind works, just in case that wasn’t already crystal clear. They are all off their rockers. WATCH: CNN guest Tim Wise- “White kids don’t deserve innocence, childhood, to feel they won’t be killed because black kids don’t.” This is the state of the left. https://twitter.com/Just_Shannah/status/1268529177164120064?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1268529177164120064&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F06%2Fcnn-guest-proposes-abusing-white-children-wake-george-floyds-death-white-kids-dont-deserve-innocence-video%2F From Daily Wire: Rioters broke into CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, on Friday night, shattering windows, throwing objects at law enforcement officials, and lighting police cars on fire. After riots escalated over the course of a few hours, rioters appeared to begin pushing police into the building, and threw at least one large firework artillery shell inside the building, which exploded near law enforcement officers.
