Gillum Responds to Corruption Scandals

During a Thursday interview with CNN’s John Berman on New Day, Florida Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum discussed the corruption he has been accused of while mayor of Tallahassee.

Gillum said the only “sin” he has committed was “being too open and too available” to people whose hidden agenda was “to corrupt you.”

“I now, after two years of having gone through this and observed this process, have certainly questioned, you know, my need to make sure that as people come around me, particularly as I serve in higher levels of office and of governance, that I got to be clear to make sure that when people are in my space that they’re there for the right reasons.”
