A failed Florida gubernatorial candidate and current CNN contributor was subpoenaed – along with his campaign – by a federal grand jury, according to a Thursday report in The Tampa Bay Times.
“Issued in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida in Tallahassee, the subpoena demands ‘documents, electronically stored information, or objects’ dating back to January 2015 about [Andrew] Gillum, his 2018 gubernatorial campaign and his political committee, Forward Florida,” according to the report.
Gillum was the mayor of Tallahassee, and an FBI investigation into Tallahassee city hall resulted in three arrests. He paid $5000 to settle an ethics violation for accepting improper gifts from a lobbyist. Previously, Gillum bragged that out of 23 subpoenas issued in that case, none were related to him. Now, he is the direct object of scrutiny by a federal grand jury.
Gillum still denies any wrongdoing.
He told The Tampa Bay Times:
“We stand ready to assist any future review of our work, because I am confident we always did the right thing and complied fully with the law. We ran an open and honest campaign. A campaign powered by thousands of volunteers and supporters. A campaign that captured imaginations and earned over four million votes. When you run a campaign that puts the power in the hands of the people, and fights for change, it inevitably invites close scrutiny, regardless of the facts.”
The subpoena also demands information from John H. Jackson, the president of the Schott Foundation for Public Education, a non-profit on whose board Gillum sat. It also demands information from Opportunity to Learn Action Fund, a non-profit formerly led by Gillum, and from Donald Sussman a wealthy investor who donated $1.5 million to Gillum’s campaign. Sharon Lettman-Hicks, a friend of Gillum’s and the head of the National Black Justice Commission, a non-profit, who worked with him at the Schott Foundation, was also listed in the subpoena.
“Gillum’s relationship with Lettman-Hicks was a point of controversy during last year’s governor race,” the report said. “Gillum reported income in 2017 of $71,000 from Lettman-Hicks’ firm on a state financial disclosure report. Meanwhile, his campaign rented space from her Tallahassee public relations firm, P&P Communications, at a cost of nearly $45,000.”

WATCH: Election Fraud Operative OPENLY Bribes Voter for Mail-in Ballot: “We Don’t Care Illegal”
Paying for votes.
Project Veritas released a second round of footage exposing an organized Minneapolis election fraud ring on Tuesday, revealing that campaign organizers working for the scheme are openly paying members of the local Somali community for unmarked mail-in ballots.
“Now… take this money for your pocket change,” says the ballot harvester. He hand the mans 200 dollars and explains that he’ll pick up his ballot after the man receives it in the mail. The same man confirms that he currently owes money to Somalian terrorist organization al-Shabaab.
Another fraudster goes on to clarify that “we don’t care illegal” in reference to the legality of the criminal ballot harvesting ring.
The release follows video that revealed an operative for Minneapolis councilor Jamal Osman harvesting more than 300 ballots, which he had collected in his car. It is a felony violation of Minnesota election law for one individual to deliver the mail-in ballots of more than three people.
Remarkably, another election fraud operative points to Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar as an instrumental figure in the voter fraud scheme. “She’s the one who came up with all of this.” The former Omar employee confirms that “people who work for Ilhan” are counting the ballots and counting the votes.
This is a gravely serious and highly organized criminal enterprise, that fundamentally jeopardizes the integrity of Minnesota’s pending federal and local elections. The US Marshals should expedite an urgent investigation into this election fraud ring.
