Erstwhile rising Florida Democratic star, former Tallahassee mayor, and former FL gubernatorial candidate, Andrew Gillum opens up – at least as far as he’s willing to go – about his fall from grace.
Andrew Gillum, the former Democratic rising star who was a hopeful for the Florida governorship, opened up for the first time Monday about his experiences battling alcoholism and depression since entering rehab.
In an 11-minute Instagram post, Gillum described the shame he endured after he was found drunk in a Miami Beach hotel room with a man, Travis Dyson, who had been suspected of overdosing on crystal meth. According to local news reports, Dyson worked as a gay porn actor and advertised himself as a male escort.
Question is, now, is he trying to sow the seeds of (political) redemption?
