Breitbart: Jeff Bell, president of the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association, slammed Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum over his reported signing a radical organization’s “Freedom Pledge” that contains anti-police rhetoric.
“By signing the Freedom Pledge, Mr. Gillum has made it clear that he supports and is willing to defend anti-law enforcement, anti-government radical groups like the Dream Defenders,” Bell told Breitbart News. “The true agenda of Mr. Gillum wanting to become the next Governor must be questioned if he is so willing to support radicalization over the rule of law.”
Under Mayor Gillum’s leadership, Tallahassee (191,000 residents) and Leon County continue to lead the state of Florida with the highest crime rates. Florida thrives on its tourism industry. It is unfathomable to think that our next governor would support abolishing ICE and strip funding to law enforcement budgets which will certainly leave our communities and visitors vulnerable.
Florida needs a strong leader who is willing to make the right decisions under pressure, which may not be the popular choice at the time. That leader is not Andrew Gillum.
