Officials in Florida moved forward with an “ethics complaint” Monday morning months after the 2018 midterm election; saying former gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum violated state law by accepting gifts during an FBI sting operation.
“The records in the case have not been made public by the state Commission on Ethics, but Gillum’s lawyer, Barry Richard, said late last week after leaving a hearing at the First District Court of Appeal that case will head to an administrative judge,” reports Fox News.
“We’re going to have a full evidentiary hearing before an independent judge. It’ll be open to the public, and everybody can decide for themselves,” added Richard.
The complaint claims Gillum violated Florida law by accepting gifts exceeding the $100 limit; alleging the former Tallahassee mayor received free tickets to events in Costa Rica and New York City.
