Undercover FBI agents paid for Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum's hotel room and his ticket to the Broadway musical Hamilton during a 2016 trip to New York City, according to a bombshell trove of records that raise new questions just two weeks before next month's election.
The records include photos, a video and dozens of text messages between Gillum, former lobbyist Adam Corey and an undercover FBI agent, and they appear to refute what the mayor has said that trip and others.
His campaign has maintained and continued to maintain Tuesday that Gillum believed the ticket came from his brother, Marcus.
"These records vindicate and add more evidence that at every turn I was paying my own way or was with my family, for all trips, including picking up tickets from my brother, Marcus, who was with a group of his own friends," Gillum said in a statement.
But the messages show that Gillum was told the tickets came from "Mike Miller," who was an FBI agent posing as a developer looking into city corruption.
"Mike Miller and the crew have tickets for us for Hamilton tonight at 8 p.m.," Corey texted Gillum on Aug. 10, 2016.
"Awesome news about Hamilton," Gillum replied, according to the records.

Hes a lyin, corrupt, socialist racist SOB
Now dont get me started
If this was a personal gift from an FBI employee outside of work and the tickets were legally bought, what is the problem?
There better be a reckoning for these corruptocrats after the election.
Gillum is a grinning crook ala Al Sharpton...............
They weren’t. Read the article before commenting.
So naturally, CNN will have a new poll out in 3, 2, 1 showing the Gillum has increased his lead from 12+ to 15+.
“”These records vindicate and add more evidence that at every turn I was paying my own way or was with my family, for all trips, including picking up tickets from my brother, Marcus, who was with a group of his own friends,” Gillum said in a statement.”
Paying my own way?? Isn’t that a capitalist motto?
The FBI sure handed out a lot of swag during the 2016 election, didn’t they?
And not one Dimm will change their vote despite this evidence.
Except when they were on the receiving end from friendly “journalists.”
This entire story strikes me as being racist. If you look hard enough in the story you can find the letters “M” “O” “N” “K” “E” and “Y.” Racists are trying to frame poor Gillum by implying with a code that he is Monkeying things up. Im telling ya!!!
He’s a crook.
Pansy ass DeSantis didn’t even bother to meet up with Trump when Trump visited Florida. The week-kneed GOPe Bush Clown still refers to Gillum as a “Liberal”.
Did they bug his house while he was at the show?
The stories I heard before this were about the FBI receiving gifts
Gillum, despite being a Democrat, is not part of the establishment. This is a reminder that the FBI doesn’t go after the establishment.
Gotcha. Thanks for the clarification.
But perhaps this went both ways more than we knew.
Stop repeating yourself.
