Why Was Florida Gubernatorial Candidate Andrew Gillum Partying With a Hunky Male Escort?

The Miami Herald and other outlets are reporting that rising Democratic star Andrew Gillum, who in 2018 came within 34,000 votes of becoming Florida’s governor, was discovered by police at a South Beach hotel early Friday morning in a room with bags of crystal meth and in the company of a man who appeared to have overdosed. Police say they were called to the Mondrian South Beach and found paramedics treating Travis Dyson, a 30-year-old Miami man, for an apparent heart attack. They say two other men were in the room: Aldo Mejias and Gillum.

What they aren't saying is why Gillum -- a 40-year-old father of three who has been married to his wife since 2009 -- was partying with Dyson, a nurse practitioner in training slash 'ROIDY RENTBOY, although I can think of a few reasons.

Come out, come out, whoever you are

Gillum, who is also a CNN contributor, had this to say about the incident: “I was in Miami last night for a wedding celebration when first responders were called to assist one of my friends. While I had too much to drink, I want to be clear that I have never used methamphetamines, I apologize to the people of Florida for the distraction this has caused our movement.”

He continued, without even a hint of irony: “I’m thankful to the incredible Miami Beach EMS team for their efforts. I will spend the next few weeks with my family and appreciate privacy during this time.”

Miami New Times reached a recovering Dyson by phone just after noon. Asked about the wedding celebration referenced by Gillum, Dyson seemed confused.

"I personally was not celebrating a wedding. I don't know if [Gillum] was in town for a wedding. He did not mention that," Dyson said. Dyson said he has known Gillum since around last spring. "We've been friends for a while," Dyson said. He then went silent on the phone and did not answer subsequent calls from New Times. No arrests were made.


At least former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist -- the personification of a messy closet case -- won his election.

First, rentboy is hot AF . Second , guilty people don’t usually stick around to try to clean up the mess. If it wasn’t too expensive I would tap that. If there is a serious issue , the Gillum wife will tell us about it with a divorce lawyer. All consenting adults , no compromising photos . Everybody move along here , unless you can prove something. He certainly is no Lindseybelle, like Charlie Christ.

I’ve stayed several times at the hotel in the Palm Springs pic. Didn’t see him there though!
