Sounds like Andrew Gillum may have some ‘splainin’ to do about the texts that contradict his original ‘Hamilton’ ticket explanation …

Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum received a ticket to the Broadway show “Hamilton” from a group that included an undercover FBI agent, according to text and email records released on Tuesday under subpoena by the lawyer for a former Florida lobbyist.
In a message from August 8, 2016, Corey texts Gillum saying, “Mike Miller and the crew have tickets for us for Hamilton tonight at 8 pm,” then asks if Gillum can join them and notes: “I think your brother has already arrived by the way.”
Gillum’s campaign pushed back against any implication that he had misled the public, saying that his brother, the previously cited source of the ticket, was part of the “crew” cited in the text.
As long as the lie is valid for a few weeks, it works!!
