Rep. Gaetz (Trump supporter) being extorted
« on: March 30, 2021, 09:29:41 pm »
Oh wait...  no he’s not...  he’s a pervert who is being investigated for messing around with a minor.  The investigation has been ongoing for months, started under the Trump administration.

He only claims he is being extorted.

... the New York Times reported that Gaetz was under investigation by the Justice Department to determine if he violated federal sex trafficking laws and had an inappropriate sexual relationship with a 17-year-old, while paying her to travel with him.

Rep. Gaetz (Trump supporter) being extorted

Oh wait...  no he’s not...  he’s a pervert who is being investigated for messing around with a minor.  The investigation has been ongoing for months, started under the Trump administration.
There is certainly a lot of shadyness going on with Gaetz. In addition to him supposedly engaging in 'sex trafficking' (transporting a minor across borders), there are stories that:
- He was showing **** photos of women he supposedly slept with, right in the congressional chamber
- He had asked for a 'blanket pardon' from Stubby McBonespurs
- He made a trip to the Carribean with a friend who was a doctor and 'marijuana entrepreneur' and some paid escorts
- He and his political buddy Joel Greenberg made a very creepy telephone call to a Florida Democratic politician
- Gaetz and Greenberg have been caught on security video in an area where IDs were kept. (And keep in mind that Greenberg is being accused of stalking and having fake IDs, so the 2 of them being around that sort of thing is.... suspicious)

In all of this, Gaetz has gotten little or no support from Republicans. (Possibly because many recognize the danger someone like him represents to future election success. Doesn't help that he has spent a significant amount of time attacking other republicans.) In fact it is possible that many accusations actually come from other Republicans. Trump's response has been.... limited (just basically said "he claims he didn't do it"). And when Gaetz went on Tucker Carlson's show, Carlson basically called the interview 'weird'.

One of the weird parts of the situation.

Of course, even if there WAS some extortion involved, it would likely only be effective if he actually did the things he was accused of.

By the way, I am sure this is just a co-incidence, but:

Gaetz cast the lone "no" vote on a widely bipartisan human trafficking bill that passed unanimously through the U.S. Senate in September before sailing through the House by a count of 418 to 1.

And things could be getting a bit more... problematic... for Gaetz...

From: https://www.cnbc.com/2021/04/08/matt-gaetz-associate-joel-greenberg-expected-to-strike-plea-deal-in-sex-trafficking-case.html
Joel Greenberg, a former county tax collector in Florida and associate of GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz, is expected to strike a plea deal in his criminal case... The defense lawyer and the prosecutors did not say if Greenberg was expected to cooperate in the Gaetz probe, according to NBC. “I’m sure Matt Gaetz is not feeling very comfortable today,” Greenberg’s attorney Fritz Scheller told reporters Thursday afternoon.

The Republicans have proven themselves to be repugnant grifters. These assholes don't give a **** about public administration. They get into politics to pocket donations and extort people and enterprises for even more money. They stay in power by gerrymandering districts, suppressing the vote, and vilifying their political adversaries to the extent that they call them antichrists. **** the GOP.

It's amazing how bad of a party the GOP is.  The party of redneck backwash and Mitt Romney.

Gaetz just needs to STFU.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

Hopefully there will always be a Gaetz or a Greene on hand to keep the putrescence nice and fresh.
