Well, that was fast. Sort of …
DEVELOPING: GILLUM CAMP OUSTS STAFFER FROM TAPE, COMMENTS: “These comments don’t reflect the mayor or what our campaign is about. The campaign has no tolerance for the comments made in the video and we have severed ties.” https://t.co/Pwnr1z3eAS

More from Politico:
Andrew Gillum’s campaign has cut ties with a campaign vendor and volunteer, Omar Smith, who was caught on undercover video by the conservative Project Veritas group saying that Gillum isn’t leveling with voters over how successful his agenda will be if elected and, perhaps more controversially, for calling Florida a “f—ed up ass state. It’s a cracker state.” Beyond that, the video is more hype than bombshell. It’s here. From the campaign: “These comments don’t reflect the mayor or what our campaign is about. The campaign has no tolerance for the comments made in the video and we have severed ties.”
So now, the question is … does anyone buy the Gillum campaign’s explanation?
Bailing water out of your reputation boat Gillum?

That’s definitely Andrew Gillum’s M.O.
Gotta love seeing @AndrewGillum throw his own buddy from college under the bus for exposing his lies.
