And when confronted with anything against him, Andrew will ALWAYS play the race card.
It’s his modus operandi.
According to a story reported in the Tampa Bay Times Tuesday afternoon, Andrew’s former college buddy, campaign treasurer and former Tallahassee lobbyist Adam Corey revealed the Broadway tickets to “Hamilton” were a “gift,” a/k/a bribe, from an FBI undercover agent:“The text messages show that, contrary to what his campaign has said, Gillum knew the tickets came from ‘Mike Miller,’ who was an FBI agent posing as a developer looking into city corruption.”
“‘Mike Miller and the crew have tickets for us to ‘Hamilton’ tonight at 8 p.m.,’ Corey texted Gillum on August 10, 2016.”
“‘Awesome news about ‘Hamilton,’ Gillum replied, according to the records. The texts appear to refute what Gillum’s campaign said just days after his unlikely win in the Democratic primary for Florida governor.”
The newspaper story goes on to recite what happened in the national television debate: “During Sunday’s debate, DeSantis asked Gillum about the tickets. ‘Did you pay for the Hamilton tickets?’ DeSantis asked. Gillum avoided directly answering the question.”
The cheapest tickets for Hamilton are $452 and can go up to $1,399, depending on where you sit.
By the way Andrew, where did you sit?
And then Andrew played the well-worn race card.
In the Tallahassee Democrat Tuesday morning, Andrew responds “… that at every turn, I was paying my own way or was with my family, for all trips, including picking up tickets from my brother Marcus … but this isn’t about a Broadway show. … The goal is obviously to use my candidacy as a way to reinforce, frankly, stereotypes about black men, Gillum said.”
What stereotypes about black men, Andrew?
No one is suggesting anything about black men, we’re suggesting you are a liar and a crook. It’s about you, not your race. You just happen to be black.
But, Andrew can’t help himself, because if he can convince the mainstream media he’s being victimized because of his race, then he can obfuscate about the truth. Read the rest of this article at sunshinestatenewss.com.
