Warning Graphic Image: Was Andrew Gillum naked during drug overdose incident?



When news broke on March 13th  that 2018 Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum was found “under the influence of an unknown substance” during an apparent overdose at the Mondrian Hotel on Miami Beach, there was unsubstantiated speculation that the married father of three was involved in an extramarital gay affair with two men.

According to a Miami Beach police report, one of the three men present during the overdose was Andrew Gillum, and that “three small plastic bags” of “suspected crystal meth” were found in the room. One of the men in the room,  Aldo Mejias, told police that the other man, Travis Dyson,  collapse moments after he opened the door for him and that he witnessed Gillum vomiting in the bathroom.

The Floridian has obtained a picture (above) of a sleeping or unconscious naked black man that eerily resembles Andrew Gillum and is lying on a towel that looks as if it was vomited on.

A day or so after the incident, The Floridian requested the body cam footage from the two police officers that arrived at the hotel room shortly after paramedics began administering first aid.

Miami Beach Police told The Floridian this past Friday that their records division was closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We followed up several times with the Records office but our emails and calls were not returned.

The Daily Mail has reported and published several pictures they say were taken inside of the hotel room. The Floridian went to the Mondrian hotel to confirm the pictures, and after being granted access to one of the rooms (not the same room of the incident) the tile throughout the room appeared to be the same that is pictured above and seen in the Daily Mail’s pictures.

Take a look at the Daily Mail picture of the bathroom. There are towels with yellow vomit stains pushed up against the back wall where someone seems to have taken the picture of passed out black man.
