Gillum Signed Dream Defenders' Pledge, so Broward Deputies Group Backs DeSantis

Jeff Bell, president of the Broward Sheriff's Office Deputies Association, told Palm Beach County radio host Brian Mudd during a WJNO interview Friday that he has endorsed Ron DeSantis for Florida governor. He does so, he said, with the overwhelming support of his association.

"When you look at Mr. Gillum's track record, and with his association with groups such as the Dream Defenders, which is an anti-law enforcement, anti-government radical group, which calls for Andrew Gillum to sign a pledge, which he did, to promise if he is elected governor of the state of Florida to divert money away from law enforcement and away from prisons in the state of Florida ...," Bell said. "Now, taking away money from law enforcement does not protect the citizens of Florida. It weakens the ability of law enforcement to actually protect the innocents.

"[Gillum] is doing everything he can to strip money and strip powers away from law enforcement and give it to these radical groups that create the discourse between the community and law enforcement, which leads to further assassinations of deputies and police officers that are on the street protecting everybody. So we can't support a candidate like Andrew Gillum, we must get someone like Ron DeSantis in office," Bell concluded.

Bell gained national attention for his biting and frequent criticism of Broward Sheriff Scott Israel after 17 were shot to death at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Valentine's Day.

I downloaded the Pledge they say Gillum signed. The Pledge does not say any of the things the above article claims.

The pledge states that the candidate who signs it pledges their support to the Freedom Papers. The Freedom Papers is the Dream Defenders document stating all of their views and beliefs and goals. Gillum signed a pledge that contained a statement saying he pledges his support to the Freedom Papers, meaning he supports the views and goals expressed therein. Thus, he has aligned himself with their views.

You obviously didn't read the Freedom Papers on the same Web Site.

Gillum showing his true colors. Can't wait for the debate on CNN 8:00 p.m. and watch him try to weasel out of this one.

This was an awful error for Mayor Gillum. Just an awful error. Nearly disqualifying in and of itself.

Absolutely, these views are absolutely not what most Americans espouse.
