Leon County Sheriff Launches Investigation of Florida Dem Gov Candidate Andrew Gillum’s Office

A week after he was caught using taxpayer resources for political purposes, the Leon County Sheriff’s office has announced they will launch an investigation of Florida Democrat gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum’s office for breaking Florida election law. This investigation could spell further trouble for Gillum’s failing gubernatorial campaign.

The Tallahassee Democrat reports:

“The Leon County Sheriff’s Office will in fact investigate whether Mayor Andrew Gillum’s office broke the law when it used taxpayer funded software to send emails with political messages.

It was a bombshell development in a story that could have implications for both City Hall and the Florida governor’s race. Gillum, a Democrat, announced last week he is running for governor in 2018.

“We are going to review it, investigate it and see if it has sufficient probable cause,’ Sheriff Walt McNeil said Thursday evening. ‘And once we’ve completed an investigation, (we’ll) submit it back to the State Attorney’s Office to see if there is sufficient probable cause to indicate that a crime has occurred.”
