Defeated Florida Gubernatorial Hopeful Andrew Gillum Found To Have Accepted Bribes Gifts From Lobbyists, Contradicting His Campaign-Season Claims

Actually this was evident before, not that Arbiter of Truth and "The National Hall-Monitor" (as I think Instapundit calls it) CNN noticed.

But now an government ethics commission officially rules he took bribes gifts, and finds that there's probable cause of a crime.

The five counts being leveled against Gillum all relate to trips he took with lobbyist and former friend Adam Corey before Gillum launched his gubernatorial campaign. The trips also coincided with attempts by undercover FBI agents investigating public corruption to get close to Gillum.

On one trip to Costa Rica, Corey -- who has since turned on Gillum --sent the former mayor a calendar invitation for the two to meet with an undercover agent posing as a developer from Atlanta. During another trip this time to New York City ---Corey took Gillum on an outing, alongside at least two undercover FBI agents, that included a boat ride around Liberty Island and a performance of the Broadway show "Hamilton."

While Gillum was not present on Friday for the hearing at the First District Court of Appeal, his gubernatorial campaign last year released documents that it said proved Gillum paid for all of his expenses on the Costa Rica trip and that his brother, Marcus Gillum, gave him the ticket to "Hamilton."

In an email, however, Corey wrote to Gillum that one of the undercover agents and his "crew" had tickets for "Hamilton." Gillum responded by saying, "awesome news," according to the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper.

So he lied. He claimed his brother had given him the ticket, but he had acknowledged in an email that a lobbyist and an FBI agent posing as a lobbyist had secured the ticket for him.

I'm sure Jake Tapper will be all over this.

Or maybe not:

Twitchy points out that Gillum still hasn't deleted or apologized for this tweet:

But then again, Jonah Goldberg hasn't apologized or even acknowledged he also retweeted out the smear against the Covington Kids, and he's still on Fox News (for now), so whatev's.
