Andrew Gillum, the Democratic candidate for Governor got caught taking a bribe. And then he lied about it. And now he’s playing the race card hoping it will all go away.

Daily Caller reports:

Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, claimed in a short video address to his supporters that he is being targeted by Republicans because he is black.

“The Republicans obviously want to distract, want to suggest. All along throughout this … they’ve wanted the people of this state to believe somehow I haven’t deserved what I’ve gotten, I’m unethical, participated in illegal and illicit activity. I mean, you name it,” Gillum said.

“The goal is obviously to use my candidacy as a way to reinforce, frankly, stereotypes about black men.”

Text messages made public Tuesday showed that in 2016, Gillum and a friend, a lobbyist named Adam Corey, received tickets to the Broadway show “Hamilton” from an FBI agent posing as a real estate developer.

The agent was investigating corruption in the city of Tallahassee, including the awarding sweetheart deals to developers and businessmen.
