Undercover FBI agent linked to Gillum fundraiser, documents show

Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum speaks during a campaign rally

"I met him for the first time the other night and then all of a sudden, without invitation, he was calling me only as Andrew, " Gillum said at the rally.

Another email noted that Gillum sent Miller a personal note to thank him for co-sponsoring the food.

DeSantis denounced the latest calls at an Orlando campaign event on Tuesday, saying "It's disgusting", and that the media should "investigate who's doing that". "How about failed Mayor Gillum?"

"It was my first glimpse of what it meant for a family to have to worry about what it meant to be safe and secure and have to worry about your own protection out of fear that maybe one of those missiles might land on your family", he said. The records include emails with Gillum asking Corey to upgrade his room at a Westin hotel, but they do not show who ultimately paid the bill.

Emails show Corey billed "Mike Miller", who happened to be an undercover FBI agent investigating Tallahassee corruption, for the $4,300 tab.

"DeSantis, on the other hand, hit Gillum over the mayor's acceptance of tickets to the Broadway musical "Hamilton" from an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent in the summer of 2016 - a revelation in documents made public on Tuesday in connection with a state ethics commission probe".

Since the opening days of the general election contest between Gillum and DeSantis, race has been a subtext, with DeSantis receiving criticism for his choice of words during an interview with Fox News. DeSantis was probably self-conscious about the fact that he no longer holds public office while Gillum does and was trying not to remind the audience of that by calling him "Mayor".

Gillum, mayor of Florida's capital city Tallahassee, is on the edges of, but not the focus of, an ongoing FBI investigation into corruption in the Tallahassee government, the Sun-Sentinel reported.




"I arrived at the theater and received the ticket from my brother", Gillum said during the debate.

"We've really seen a collapsing of our political discourse", Gillum said.

"All this stuff that they say, I've got to let them know; anti-police?" Adam Corey became a lobbyist.

But when Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum went after his Republican opponent Ron DeSantis' associations with racists at a debate on Wednesday, a clip of the moment racked up more than 4 million views.

Gillum said he thought his younger brother, Marcus Gillum, had swapped Jay-Z and Beyoncé tickets with Adam Corey, Gillum's lobbyist friend, in exchange for the musical tickets.

I think? Ideological orthodoxy changes quickly in politics nowadays, and they're pretty far gone on some subjects.

Corey either arranged or attended seven trips for Gillum in 2016, including a February trip to Tampa to meet with affordable housing developer Peter Leach, one of Corey's clients, and a two-night trip in Atlanta in July. "Some people lost access", DeSantis said.

All in all, the differences between the way Gillum and DeSantis have raised funds is reflective of their campaign styles in the "era of big donors", said Susan McManus, a political science professor at the University of South Florida. He said he envisions a state of Florida where anti-BDS legislation is enforced, where support for funding security in Jewish day schools continues and where people speak up and speak out against anti-Semitism in the communities, college campus and high schools.
