I’ve been VERY clear on my feelings about Andrew Gillum.
He’s everything that could be wrong with a politician. He’s a heinously corrupt socialist… so basically he’d fit riiiight in somewhere in Latin America or something. (I say this AS a Latin American. We have these so-called “Socialist” scum-lords everywhere. There’s nothing a dollar can’t buy you.)
BREAKING: Florida Commission on Ethics finds probable cause former Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum violated ethics laws when he allegedly accepted gifts from lobbyists and vendors during out-of-town trips. Gillum was 2018 Democratic nominee for Florida governor.

See what I mean?
Anyway- He’s under investigation for BLATANT ethics violations. But that doesn’t matter, CNN gave him a shiny new gig anyway.

There he can advance the talking point that ‘ORANGE MAN BAD’ as he conveniently avoids any criticism of his own wrongdoings.
And it’s not like CNN just DOESN’T KNOW. I mean, they WROTE about it:
An ethics complaint against former Florida gubernatorial candidate and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum will proceed after the state ethics commission found probable cause at a hearing Friday that he had accepted gifts, Gillum’s lawyer confirmed.
Gillum faced six counts related to soliciting and accepting gifts — including rental accommodations in Costa Rica, a boat ride to see the Statue of Liberty and tickets to see the Broadway musical “Hamilton” in 2016 — Gillum’s attorney Barry Richard told CNN.
“There’s conflicting testimony as to what happened,” he said.
At the hearing, the Florida ethics commission advocate considered the facts of the case and “recommended no probable cause on the account for soliciting gifts, and she recommended probable cause on the remaining counts, which were accepting gifts that exceeded $100,” Richard said.
