Democrat Andrew Gillum — the former mayor of Tallahassee, Florida — will enter rehab and step away from public life after being found unconscious in a Miami hotel room with a gay escort/porn star who overdosed on crystal meth.
Gillum announced in a statement: “I have made the decision to seek help, guidance and enter a rehabilitation facility at this time. This has been a wake-up call for me. Since my race for governor ended, I fell into a depression that has led to alcohol abuse.”
The failed gubernatorial candidate continued: “I am committed to doing the personal work to heal fully and show up in the world as a more complete person. I now need to firmly focus on myself and my family. I will be stepping down from all public facing roles for the foreseeable future.”

Gillum’s rehab announcement came two days after he apologized for being found unconscious from what police speculated was a “possible drug overdose.” According to the police report, “clear plastic baggies containing suspected crystal meth” were found in Gillum’s hotel room.
On Friday, Andrew Gillum insisted that he was not a drug addict after social media exploded with reports that he had been partying with gay escort (and self-prescribed porn star) Travis Dyson.
At the time, Gillum claimed he was in Miami to attend a wedding, and that police were called to “assist one of my friends.”
Dyson later denied that he was a “friend” of Gillum’s and pointed out that he was a gay escort. Gillum is married to a woman, with whom he has three children.

Blexit founder Candace Owens tweeted several salacious shirtless photos of Travis Dyson — the friend that Gillum claims he was “helping.”
Owens remarked: “[Dyson] is an openly gay man, whose public profile has very few photos of him clothed. His sexuality is only relevant because as I said earlier—police suspected they had disrupted a drug/sex party.”
This is the alleged friend that @AndrewGillum claims he was “helping” after a wedding.

Owens followed up, tweeting: “Unfortunately for Andrew Gillum, his “friend” Travis Dyson has come forth to reveal that he is no friend, but an open male escort.”
“He also claims that he has never heard of the wedding which Andrew Gillum speaks of. Gillum needs a new alibi.”

Andrew Gillum, a former mayor, became famous for being a sore loser when he refused to concede to Republican Ron DeSantis, who won the election to become Florida governor in 2018.
Amazingly, Gillum refused to concede even though a machine recount yielded a whopping total of one extra vote for him. The recount reaffirmed initial results showing that Ron DeSantis had clearly won the election.
Gillum’s shocking fall from grace is reminiscent of the sordid polyamorous sex scandal that cost Democrat Katie Hill her Congressional seat.

In October 2019, Kate Hill resigned amid bombshell revelations of her three-way sexual affairs, nude photo leaks and admissions of excessive drinking.
Democrat hoebag @KatieHill4CA had extramarital affairs with a 22-year-old female staffer AND a male underling.

Like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Hill was a freshman Congresswoman who rabidly tried to impeach President Trump. Why? Because Hill complained that Trump was “unprofessional.”
In a statement following Hill’s resignation, Nancy Pelosi — the leader of the Democratic Party — praised Katie for her “powerful commitment to her community.”
