Kise Comments on Corruption Probe Involving Democratic Nominee for Florida Governor

31 August 2018 The Washington Post News
Partner Christopher Kise was quoted in a Washington Post article, “Corruption probe looms over Democrat’s historic campaign for Florida governor,” about an investigation by state ethics officials and the FBI into possible corruption by Tallahassee city officials.

Kise, who represents lobbyist Adam Corey, a longtime friend of and former campaign treasurer for Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, the Democratic nominee for Florida governor, accused Gillum of “throwing (Corey) under the bus.”

“The best thing that has happened to Andrew Gillum is he’s now the Democratic nominee for governor of a major state,” Kise said. “But maybe the worst thing that has happened to him, in terms of the ongoing investigation, is that he is now the nominee.”

When Gillum was an “also-ran,” Kise added, nobody pressed him on the hard questions. “Now, as is ultimately true for all of us, there comes a day of reckoning, and he is going to come under far more scrutiny.”
