After Being Discovered Wasted and Naked in a Hotel Room With a Gay Male Escort and Bags of Crystal Meth, Andrew Gillum Says He Will Withdraw From Public Life…

It was only a matter of time before the familiar “entering rehab” and “apologize to my family” excuse was trotted out by former Florida gubernatorial candidate and CNN contributor, Andrew Gillum.

After being discovered naked in a hotel room with an overdosed gay male escort and three bags of crystal meth next to the bed, Andrew Gillum says he is withdrawing from public life to deal with “deeper struggles”. Go figure:

TALLAHASSEE — Andrew Gillum said he would withdraw from public life, closing a chapter in his career that took him from the peak of Florida power to a Miami Beach hotel room where he was found inebriated with a man suspected of overdosing on crystal meth.

“This has been a wake-up call for me,” the former Tallahassee mayor said in a written statement Sunday. “Since my race for governor ended, I fell into a depression that has led to alcohol abuse. I witnessed my father suffer from alcoholism and I know the damaging effects it can have when untreated. I also know that alcoholism is often a symptom of deeper struggles.“

“I will be stepping down from all public facing roles for the foreseeable future,” he wrote.

Gillum said he would enter a rehabilitation facility. He apologized and asked for privacy.

The one-time gubernatorial candidate will give up the reins of Forward Florida, a political committee he founded to register and motivate voters to defeat President Donald Trump in the battleground state.

He also is stepping back from CNN, where he was paid commentator, a gig that made him a familiar face in the living rooms of voters.

Gillum’s friends say he’s been withdrawn from them, too, as he grapples with the destruction of his career and the challenge to his marriage. (read more)

          Gillum saying after his loss he fell into depression and booze. That part I can believe but while holding one nostril. His Butti thing only since the election? Nah. White Butti parlayed his life booty thang with the white left and MSM. But, he only got .002 vote in Dem primary in SC and quit, eating up millions of dopey white left’s $millions. FL Dems share big % of same demo’s as SC. Black Butti can try a comeback, not gonna fly in Florida. Better idea to relocate for rehab in LA or SF or Seattle.

You just don’t get depressed and go give meth and homosexuality a whirl. This man in an elected office is a blank check to those who put him there, easily blackmailed and manipulated. And don’t think for 2 seconds they didn’t vet this guy. They were going to make him governor of Florida. A firewall state for conservatives. This is why we always see democrat politicians have catastrophic falls from “grace”. They are broken in the first place. If anyone doubts the left is pure evil they are blind.

    Initial reports said there were at least 3 men in the room.

    Again, this is extreme corruption. Numerous bags of drugs and no arrests. One person reported in other articles to have been unresponsive and in need of CPR and no arrests. As reported in other articles, 1 of the 3 men in the room was a prostitute and prostitution is still illegal in Florida but no arrests.

    This demands an investigation into the corruption. Were police paid off or was it a political favor?

I wouldn’t get bail and I would do 20 years in prison. Gillum goes free. This needs to be investigated. This is outrageous.

      Think Tony Phillips who played for the Anaheim Angels back in the 90’s That is exactly what happened to him.

      He claimed he was just helping her out with her tough life and she needed drugs so he bought them for her (from an undercover cop).

      Oh yeah, and his wife didn’t know.

      On August 10, 1997, Phillips was arrested in Anaheim and charged with buying a small quantity of freebase cocaine. He had been found by police in a hotel room with $30 worth of cocaine and a pipe used to smoke it.

      Phillips pleaded guilty to one count of felony cocaine possession, with the charge subject to dismissal if he completed drug counseling and then stayed drug-free for a year. As Phillips met those conditions, the charge was dismissed by an Orange County, California, judge in May 1999.

    Gillum and Dems are homophobic and utter bigots. As the Left has taught us, What’s wrong with being gay and taking drugs and cheating on your wife? How dare anyone be shamed for their behavior? All behaviors are EQUAL. Walk a mile in a drag queens stilettos on the way to the children’s section of the public library before you dare criticize a tranny.

    Gillum is a proud gay drug using black homosexual democrat father and Dems ought to celebrate that and run him in the next election. This criticism of behavior is most unbecoming!

    Sex/Meth Parties are Increasingly Popular

Party hosts often advertise that guests will be treated to free meth and anonymous sexual escapades. In many areas of the nation, these parties have become a regular occurrence. And, unfortunately, most of the party guests end up having unprotected sex.”
