The FBI released a bombshell about one of the top Democrats in America

A Democrat rising star could end up challenging Donald Trump in 2020.

He might be one of the most dangerous threats Trump faces.

But he got caught in a massive lie that could destroy his campaign.

Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum is one of the Democrats’ top candidates this cycle.

Polls show he could win the Florida Gubernatorial election.

If he wins, speculation will immediately begin that he could run for President in 2020.

But Gillum has a problem.

The FBI has been investigating officials in Tallahassee for corruption.

During the first Gubernatorial debate, Republican nominee Ron DeSantis asked Gillum how he paid for a ticket to the Broadway Musical Hamilton that Gillum attended with the lobbyist who was under investigation as well as undercover FBI agents.

Gillum claimed his brother gave him the ticket.

This was a lie.

Text messages from the lobbyist showed an undercover FBI agent passed Gillum the ticket.

Gillum responded by playing the race card.

He claimed DeSantis only attacked him on the issue because of his race.

Gillum stated:

“The Republicans obviously want to distract, want to suggest. All along throughout this … they’ve wanted the people of this state to believe somehow I haven’t deserved what I’ve gotten, I’m unethical, participated in illegal and illicit activity. I mean, you name it,” Gillum said.

“The goal is obviously to use my candidacy as a way to reinforce, frankly, stereotypes about black men.”

Gillum’s problem is that he is caught up in a corruption scheme and lied about it.

Trying to use his race for cover is a shameful distraction from his serious character issues.
