Democrat Andrew Gillum, the 2018 party nominee for Florida governor and former Tallahassee mayor, was arrested on Wednesday, June 22, according to USA Today. Is the politician still married?

Gillum’s long-time adviser Sharon Lettman-Hicks was also arrested. The two are being charged by the Department of Justice, overseen by the Biden administration.

The indictment alleges that the two conspired to commit wire fraud between 2016 and 2019.

The ongoing controversy is making many internet users throw back to 2020, when the politician opened up about being bisexual. Many are wondering if Andrew is still married to R. Jai Gillum.

Is Andrew Gillum still married?

Yes, Andrew Gillum is still married to his wife, R. Jai.

The pair have been married for 13 years and share three children: Davis Allen, Caroline, and Jackson.

Andrew and R. Jai’s marriage has weathered many storms – the recent arrest arrest being the latest one.

Back in 2020, America was shocked when police reportedly found the former Democratic nominee in a Miami hotel room with a male sex worker.

The scandal took America’s political scene by storm and Andrew soon withdrew from public life.

Six months after the controversy erupted, Andrew did a TV interview with Tamron Hall and revealed that he is attracted to both men and women. This made him the most prominent openly bisexual man in American politics.

In another exclusive interview with GQ, R. Jai and Andrew revealed how their marriage had survived the controversy. The couple revealed that it took “hours of tearful talks, couples therapy and a new policy of “radical honesty,” all of which occurred when they were locked up in quarantine.

“I think that the pandemic probably saved our marriage,” R. Jai said. “In the sense that we couldn’t go anywhere,” Andrew continued.

The statement says: “The Indictment alleges that between 2016 and 2019, defendants Gillum and Lettman-Hicks conspired to commit wire fraud, by unlawfully soliciting and obtaining funds from various entities and individuals through false and fraudulent promises and representations that the funds would be used for a legitimate purpose.”

In a statement of his own, Andrew has denied any wrongdoing.

“I have spent the last 20 years of my life in public service and continue to fight for the people,” his statement read.

“Every campaign I’ve run has been done with integrity. Make no mistake that this case is not legal, it is political.”.
