Former Florida Gov. Candidate Andrew Gillum Found in Hotel Room With Man Suffering From Possible Drug Overdose

Former Florida Gov. Candidate Andrew Gillum Found in Hotel Room With Man Suffering From Possible Drug Overdose

The man, a gay escort, found with Gillum said the two men have been “friends for a while.”

Police found former Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate and CNN contributor Andrew Gillum in a hotel room with a man who suffered from a possible drug overdose.

Police believe a bag they found at the scene contained crystal meth. Reports indicate the man is a gay escort.

Police found Gillum with Travis Dyson. His Rent Men profile states he works as a “pornstar performer.” His social media accounts show “sexual videos of himself with a muscular man he identified as his boyfriend.”

Dyson’s Instagram became private after the media reported the incident.

Aldo Mejias, 56, discovered Gillum and Dyson in the hotel room. Mejias told the police “he entrusted his credit card to Dyson, who identifies himself on social media as a registered nurse.”

From Local10:

Mejias told police officers he arrived to the room about 11 p.m., and he found Dyson with Gillum, 40. He said both Dyson and Gillum were vomiting, and when Dyson collapsed he conducted chest compressions and called 911.

Officers reported finding three small clear plastic baggies containing suspected crystal meth on both the bed and floor of the hotel room.

“Officers then attempted to speak to Mr. Gillum,” the reporting officer wrote. “Mr. Gillum was unable to communicate with officers due to his inebriated state … Mr. Gillum left the hotel room and returned to his residence.”

Medical personnel transported Dyson to Mount Sinai Medical Center. Dyson has recovered but remains in stable condition.

Gillum explained the situation on Friday. From WFTV:

“I was in Miami last night for a wedding celebration when first responders were called to assist one of my friends,” Gillum said in a 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.”

He said he is grateful to paramedics for their help.

“I will spend the next few weeks with my family and appreciate privacy during this time,” Gillum said.

Gillum has been married to R. Jai Gillum since 2009. They have 6-year-old twin girls and a 2-year-old son.

Dyson told The Miami New Times he “personally was not celebrating a wedding” and did not know Gillum “was in town for a wedding” because he never mentioned it.

Dyson also said that the two men have “been friends for a while.”

Oh Lord

I’m impressed that Gillum was willing to go this far to advance his career with the DEMs.

He’ll certainly get a promotion as a CNN talking head, and he’ll be considered as a VP pick for Biden, since a down-low African American male is about as good as an African American woman to DEMs.

Now, if Stacey Abrams was to come out of the closet ( a very big closet, indeed ), she would shoot to the top of the potential VP list.

    That’s the Dim party of five years ago you’re talking about. Being black and gay is no longer intersectional enough. Now he’d need to chop his junk off, or at least “date” a tranny to be considered woke enough. Or maybe if he sacrifices one of his kids at the alter of gender re-assignment surgery.

Looks like he decided that the Marion Barry advancement track was the way to go.

Sex, drugs, and trans/homosexuals.

I feel sorry for his wife and kids.

James Woods said it best on Twitter:

If you need to understand the razor-thin margin between a glorious America of jobs, borders, and a strong military, or a corrupt shithole run by drugged out, booze-besotted Democrats, look no further than this article. This is why #RepublicansMUSTVOTE!!!

How is it conceivable that this lump of shit, #AndrewGillum, was THIS CLOSE to being the governor of the most important swing state in America? Had he been elected, it could have tilted the #2020 presidency (providing he wouldn’t have overdosed before the election, of course).

Is this one step better than “a dead girl or a live boy” in the room?

    Wasn’t there a democrat that was found two or three times with dead male prostitutes in his house? And nothing really ever happened to him. What was his name. Oh right, Ed Buck. Major democrat donor. Killed two with meth overdoses and his third victim somehow escaped and survived.

    I’d say a live male prostitute in a hotel room with crystal meth beats two dead in your house any day of the year.

      I remember seeing Ed Buck all smiles in a pic with Hillary. For some reason reminded me of the pic of Rosalind Carter with John Wayne Gacy. Democratic Party women can sure pick them. I think Buck got charged with something after mass protests.

So if ‘what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas’ I suppose that means ‘what goes down in Miami stays underground’.

Who knew …. Gillum is the “black Beto”.

This why snowbirds from the North East will ruin every state they re-settle in. FL had been a pretty conservative state twenty years ago but the taxes and weather drove the losers to FL. They almost succeeded in destroying the state of FL in the last election. Can anyone imagine this criminal sitting the WH of FL? He couldn’t even run the small town of Tallahassee FL without corruption and controversy.

If any reader and two “buddies” here were found passed put in a hotel room, drunk, bags of meth laying about, one of the “buddies” in overdose condition, what do you think would happen? (First of all medical care of course) Arrests, drug evals, blood tests, jail time and released with a court date? Would the police get warrants to check electronic media and financial transactions to prove a prostitution case? Or would all three be dusted off and driven home? This seems to be another case of political privilege.

I am certain that if the cops kicked in my hotel room door and found me and others in various states of inebriation, incoherence, and possible overdose, with baggies of methamphetamine lying about, we would all be going to jail. What the hell is going on here?

    “What the hell is going on here?…”

    Why isn’t hillary clinton in jail? why isn’t omar in jail? Why isn’t epstein’s murder being investigated? Why did sessions give the swamp cover? Why is lois lerner still free?

    Our country is COMPLETELY corrupt, from our elected officials, our media, our schools and our administrative officials.

While I had too much to drink, I want to be clear that I have never used methamphetamines

And yet you ended up in a hotel room with three bags of methamphetamines and an overdosed gay prostitute. Go figure. If this had been a Republican the cries of outrage from the alt-left would be deafening. But we’re supposed to cut Gillum some slack. Liberal democrats. What a bunch of fucking hypocrites.

    Same with Ed Buck. Police found drugs and a dead guys in his residence and he was charged only after a survivor raised hell. He would have been victim number 3.

The corrupt garbage that infests the democrat party should be no surprise.

After all, and in light of the weakening of the GOPe, where else is corrupt garbage supposed to go?

Dyson told The Miami New Times he “personally was not celebrating a wedding” and did not know Gillum “was in town for a wedding” because he never mentioned it.

Gillum and Dyson were the ones getting married would be my guess. Mr and Mr GillyDillys. Congratulations to the happy couple….

Meth fueled gay orgy?

Must be Florida man Friday – political addition.

He is now going into rehab
I wonder if he was tested before he signed that CNN contract
