Another Democrat crook: Failed 2018 Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum gets indicted, pleads not guilty NEWS


Andrew Gillum, the Democratic candidate who lost Florida's 2018 gubernatorial contest to Republican Ron DeSantis, has been indicted and has pleaded not guilty.

"The Indictment alleges that between 2016 and 2019, defendants Gillum and [Sharon Janet] Lettman-Hicks conspired to commit wire fraud, by unlawfully soliciting and obtaining funds from various entities and individuals through false and fraudulent promises and representations that the funds would be used for a legitimate purpose," according to a press release.

"The Indictment further alleges the defendants used third parties to divert a portion of those funds to a company owned by Lettman-Hicks, who then fraudulently provided the funds, disguised as payroll payments, to Gillum for his personal use. Both defendants are charged with 19 counts of wire fraud. Gillum is also charged with making false statements to agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation," the release continues.

Gillum and Lettman-Hicks each pleaded not guilty, according to reports.
