Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum is demanding that television stations stop airing an attack ad from his opponent that contains a number of malicious falsehoods.
The ad was paid for by the GOP and approved by Ron DeSantis.

i wonder what is false?
Ah, a shame. Guess Gillum could ask the FBI confirm he is not being directly or indirectly investigated? And the flights, did he take them or not? Seems beyond these, the rest is free speech conjecture and fair game.
Sounds like the ads are kinda sorta truthful, and kinda sorta not.
Depending on your perspective.
BTW, being advised that the FBI is not investigating you doesn’t mean they are not.
My favorite is the new one that says Gillum is not only running for Governor, he’s running from the FBI! And its true! Haha.
You know you’re over the target when you start getting flack!
So let’s apply the Democrat Rule book... PROVE ITS FALSE.
Welcome to the big leagues dude. Can’t stand the heat get outta the kitchen....oh yeah, hows your FBI investigation going....say hello to soros for me will ya?
Double the ad buy. Keep hammering this clown.
The Dems said because Trump was under investigation he couldn’t nominate to SCOTUS, so I guess Gillum can’t run for office until this dark cloud is cleared.
“In the ad, a voice states that Andrew Gillum is running for Governor and also from the FBI combined with the text Andrew Gillum FBI Investigation. The Gillum camp said this is not true. While the FBI is investigating key players in Tallahassees city government, it has been widely reported that Gillum has been advised by the FBI that he is not the subject of an investigation.”
“it has been widely reported” is the key there....reported by media sympathetic to gillum no doubt, it doesn’t say the FBI isn’t investigating him.
What De Santis is including in these messages may be considered “malicious”, in that it does great harm to the reputation of Andrew Gillum, but it is not false. Not even fake.
If anything, De Santis is pulling his punches. Andrew Gillum is a thug who would probably do well on the Chicago City Council, but not likely to be beneficial to Florida.
How about running your own rebuttal ads?
Now that would be the American way, he is a socialist commie. Run to a judge way.
All Desantis is doing is running clips of local television stations’ reports of how Gillum is being investigated. He should “demand” the tv stations lie for him and say he isn’t being investigated.
MUST BE ON TARGET! Double the “payload”!
His brothers are caught up in this as well. The entire family is using his position to fill their pockets.
Yep, and not one Florida local station here (Tampa Bay SMSA) has mentioned it ONCE.
Hey NUMBNUTS,,,,,,,GO AWAY!!!
