Andrew Gillum, the Democratic candidate for Florida governor, accepted tickets to the Broadway musical Hamilton from an undercover FBI agent in the summer of 2016, according to documents made public Tuesday as part of an investigation by the state’s ethics commission.
The commission has been investigating a complaint brought against Gillum related to trips he took to Costa Rica and New York City. Gillum claims that he paid for all expenses related to both trips.
The records include text messages between Gillum and former lobbyist Adam Corey. The messages also indicate that the undercover agent booked hotel rooms for Corey and Gillum as well as arranged a private yacht trip around Manhattan Island.
