Florida Ethics Commission finds probable cause in complaint against Andrew Gillum

Source: Tallahassee Democrat

An advocate for the Florida Commission on Ethics recommended the board find probable cause on five separate allegations involving trips former Mayor Andrew Gillum took in 2016 to Costa Rica and New York City, according to documents obtained by the Tallahassee Democrat.

The advocate, who acts as a prosecutor for the commission, recommended probable cause be found that Gillum accepted gifts and "things of value" during the trips when he knew or should have known they were given to influence his official action. The advocate also recommended probable cause be found that Gillum received gifts from lobbyists when he knew or "reasonably believed" the gifts were valued over $100.

Finally, the advocate recommended probable cause be found that Gillum failed to report gifts he received on the two trips.

4. Yep - a hit piece

From an update to the article:
Andrew Gillum's attorney, Barry Richard, said in documents filed with the Florida Commission on Ethics that the allegations against the former mayor "hang on a very slender thread."

"They rest on (1) an affidavit of dubious credibility signed by Adam Corey, who refused to submit to an interview by the commission's investigator or to be deposed and (2) a handful of documents that are more favorable than unfavorable to (Gillum)."
