Democrats lie all the time to get their way.
It is second nature for them.
And one Democrat said the craziest thing possible after being caught in a lie.
Democrat Candidate For Governor Caught Lying
Andrew Gillum is hoping to become the next governor of Florida.
He is a Democrat who currently serves as the mayor of Tallahassee.
His challenger, Rep. Ron DeSantis has the endorsement of President Trump.
And Gillum has the endorsement of former President Barack Obama.
So each side truly pulled out the big guns in a race that is going to be close.
And things have been heating up in recent days.
Going into the general election, Gillum had a strong lead.
Nobody expected him to get into the general election, to begin with.
So he hadn’t faced the same scrutiny as other candidates.
But as soon as that started, his poll numbers steadily fell.
Now DeSantis is within striking distance of Gillum.
And it all comes down to a series of scandals.
The biggest of those scandals comes from a lie Gillum made about gifts received from an FBI agent.
Gillum Lies About Gifts From The FBI
Andrew Gillum has been facing questions about corruption during his time as mayor.
He has continually denied any corruption, having an excuse for every attack.
But in recent days he ran out of excuses.
Gillum has faced scrutiny over a set of Hamilton Broadway tickets he received in 2016.
He claims they came from his brother.
But text messages reveal they came from a lobbyist named Adam Corey.
Not only that, but it has just been revealed how Corey got the tickets.
He received them from an FBI agent posing as a real estate developer.
The agent was investigating city corruption.
And it seems like he found it.
Gillum Responds To Claims Of Corruption
But the act itself isn’t raising eyebrows as much as Gillum’s response.
In response, Gillum posted a video to his supporters.
Throughout the video, he blames Republicans for bringing up his corruption.
He claims he has worked for everything he’s ever received.
And then he drops the real reason he thinks Republicans are attacking him.
Gillum claims it is because he is black, saying:
“The goal is obviously to use my candidacy as a way to reinforce, frankly, stereotypes about black men.”
So instead of owning up with what any reasonable person knows is a mistake, he pulls the race card.
This isn’t the first time Gillum has pulled the race card.
The day after securing the Republican nomination to run against Gillum, Ron DeSantis was called racist by Gillum.
DeSantis said that Florida voters shouldn’t “monkey this up” by enacting socialist-leaning policies.
Gillum took personal offense because of the use of the term “monkey.”
He claimed DeSantis was attacking him for being black, and using dog-whistle only racists would hear.
Every reasonable person knows that is ridiculous, but Gillum has continued with that claim.
Who do you think will be Florida’s next governor?
