Andrew Gillum, who in 2018 came within 34,000 votes of becoming Florida’s governor, was discovered by police at a South Beach hotel early Friday morning in a room with bags of possible methamphetamine and in the company of a man who appeared to have overdosed on drugs, according to a Miami Beach police report.

Police say they were called to the Mondrian South Beach early Friday morning and found paramedics treating Travis Dyson, a 30-year-old Miami man, for an apparent heart attack. They say two other men were in the room: Aldo Mejias and Gillum.

Police say Gillum, who was not arrested, was too intoxicated to answer questions. An offense incident report says that officers found three clear plastic baggies of suspected crystal meth on the bed and floor.

a statement from Gillum (the bald black florida Dem hero guy)
http://pbs.twimg.com/media/ETAOmVZWAAEusC-?format=png

claims he was drunk from a wedding celebration & hasn't used meth... so, if that checks out... much better, but still not a great story to be out there

although capturing the meth vote may be useful in Florida

This reminds me of a scene from The Godfather II...

DeSantis' polling numbers are already excellent, there was no need for him to stoop to this.

from a NY Times article (Fake News!), the 3rd guy's version of events:

"
Mr. Gillum and the other man, Travis Dyson, 30, were found by Aldo Mejias, 56, a friend of Mr. Dyson’s. In a brief phone interview on Friday morning, an emotional Mr. Mejias said he got to the room shortly after 11 p.m. He was supposed to meet Mr. Dyson to go out on South Beach.

But Mr. Dyson and Mr. Gillum, whom Mr. Mejias said he did not know, had arrived much earlier, at around 6 p.m. After Mr. Dyson let Mr. Mejias into the room, Mr. Dyson collapsed onto the bed, according to the police report. Mr. Mejias performed chest compressions on Mr. Dyson.

“I was seeing very shallow breathing,” he said of Mr. Dyson. “The other guy was passed out on the floor, throwing up.”
"

(the passed out/throwing up guy being Gillum)

although Mejias could be lying to cover his own ass of course

"Aldo Mejias"

Aldo? As in "Al" (Neri)?

Confirmed for conspiracy.

the President of the United States retweeted:
====
“Andrew Gillum apologizes after being found 'inebriated' in hotel room where police say man was treated for 'possible drug overdose'”

Gillum’s dilemma: How to blame Trump, and how to play the race card. But he’s up for the challenge.

+ an image saying ['Andrew Gillum, naked, told police the Crystal Meth was sugar. He needed more sugar in his Cuban coffee']

Lurking some lefty forums, many of them are convinced this was a set up of their very promising young black hero dem. Also, they don't find much joy in "Florida man" stories for some reason.
