Andrew Gillum was the first African American nominee to vie for governor in the state of Florida. He came close to beating Ron DeSanctis, the republican candidate, in a very competitive race that caught national attention.
Early Friday morning, police and paramedics were called to a hotel room in Miami Beach, after a man was suspected to have overdosed on crystal Meth.
In the hotel room, they found the former Tallahassee mayor vomiting in the bathroom and “Inebriated” with two other men, Aldo Mejia and Travis Dyson.According to police reports, Mejia was performing CPR on Travis Dyson has he has passed out.
Further information now indicate that the former mayor was found with more than just drugs. In a rather interesting twist, it has been revealed that Travis Dyson is a gay escort whose profile on the the website by the name rentmen.com describes as “pornstar performer” who offered services such as gay massage.
In the statement released to the press, Mayor Gillum said, “I was in Miami last night for a wedding celebration when first responders were called to assist one of my friends,” Gillum said in the statement. “While I had too much to drink, I want to be clear that I have never used methamphetamines. I apologize to the people of Florida for the distraction this has caused our movement.”
Mayor Gillum is currently a CNN Political Contributor and was being mentioned as a possible Vice-presidential candidate on the Joe Biden Ticket.
