ERROR ALERT! I noted upthread that Joel Greenberg is in prison; he has not yet gone to trial. 

 But yes, Gaetz is torched and no one (except Gym Jordan and Marjorie Failure Greene) is speaking up for him. 

There is a great deal of chortling over Gaetz using Apple Pay and hotel ATMs to pay for sex. IF there is hotel security footage of Gaetz withdrawing cash to pay for sex AND there is an underage girl with him in that security footage, he'll be doing hard time in prison. 

There is also the likelihood that campaign funds were misspent because when you're as corrupt and careless as Gaetz...

Quote

These were specific ways now-US Rep. Matt Gaetz and other Florida lawmakers could earn "extra points" in a sex competition in which Gaetz is accused of participating when he served in the state's House of Representatives

Gaetz is a frat boy, a 38-year-old probably sociopathic frat boy.  That's it. 

I add in the sociopath aspect because he's shameless, and closely associated with criminal and sociopath Joel Greenberg.

Fox News Issues Brutal Statement that It Has 'No Interest' in Hiring Matt Gaetz

Quote

As one of the most far-right members of Congress, Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) became notable for his viral defenses of former President Donald Trump, whom he's hailed as one of the greatest Presidents in American history.

Earlier this week, the New York Times reported that Gaetz is under federal investigation for the sex trafficking of a minor, whom he may have paid to travel and lodge with him.

Since then, news has only gotten worse for Gaetz, with CNN reporting that he showed nude photos of his sexual conquests on the House floor and the Times reporting that Gaetz allegedly took ecstasy, an illegal drug, before having sex with the women he paid.

As more salacious and disturbing details continue to surface, Gaetz's future in Congress is being called into question.

Just before the initial report of the investigation broke, Axios reported that Gaetz was considering an early exit from Congress for a job at the ultra-right media outlet Newsmax.

In a Wednesday comment to the Daily Beast, Gaetz said he'd spoken with other right-wing networks as well, including the most famous one of all: Fox News.

"I've talked to either executives, producers or hosts at Newsmax, OAN, Fox, Fox Business, Real America's Voice and probably others I'm forgetting in this moment as I focus intently on refuting false accusations against me."

Gaetz has appeared on Fox News frequently, and even took to far-right Fox host Tucker Carlson's broadcast earlier this week in his first appearance after news of the investigation broke.

But with things looking bleaker for Gaetz, Fox News scrambled to distance itself in a statement:

"No one with any level of authority has had conversations with Matt Gaetz for any of our platforms, and we have no interest in hiring him."

Of course he did.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) reportedly sought a blanket pre-emptive pardon from the White House during the final weeks of President Trump's administration, a revelation that comes as the lawmaker finds himself the subject of a federal sex-trafficking investigation. 

Gaetz asked Trump for a pardon for him and unidentified congressional allies, two people familiar with the discussion told The New York Times. The conversation came at roughly the same time that Gaetz publicly called for Trump to pardon GOP allies and as the Justice Department investigated the Florida Republican over an alleged relationship with a 17-year-old that violated sex trafficking laws.

It was not immediately clear if Gaetz was aware of the federal inquiry when he asked for a pardon, according to the Times. The request from Gaetz was communicated to a Trump aide, and it was also not clear if Gaetz requested a pardon directly with the then-president, the newspaper reported.

The pardon power is in need of major reform.  Fuck sticks like Gaetz shouldn't be able to go running to the likes of OFM for pardons for their offenses.

I think this was around the time Gaetz tried to woo Tiffany Trump. Could the wooing be related to the hoped-for pardon?

Now that I think of it maybe that's why he was saying that he was going to resign from Congress to defend fuck face in his second impeachment.  Maybe he figured that the offer would make the orange fuckopotomus so grateful that he would give Matty the pardon he wanted.  Some of Matty's past actions make more sense now that we know what we do about him.

There are several details of the Matt Gaetz story that keep sticking in my head, but the one that sticks in it most is the report that the Florida Republican used to wander around and show his colleagues nude photos of people he had slept with. There’s a kind of grim weirdness to the idea of these interactions (which Gaetz denies) — a very “I Read On eHow.com That Men Bond Over Conquests” bewilderment. The callousness and the violation involved are enough of a sock to the gut. But the fact that this was allegedly known about him is what keeps getting to me. The fact that this, or something in this neighborhood of bad, occasioned senior staff from then-House Speaker Paul D. Ryan’s (R-Wis.) office to have a talk with Gaetz about professional behavior.

Over all of this I keep hearing the uncomfortable laughter of Billy Bush. I keep coming back to the fact that it takes two to make a locker room.

I keep coming back to the detail in CNN’s report that this wasn’t something Matt Gaetz did a single time, but repeatedly. Because if it happened more than once — if it happened twice, even — that is because the first time went better than it should have.

"Gaetz fought revenge porn bill, saying ex-lovers can use photos as they see fit, sponsor says"

Quote

When Florida legislators passed a bill aimed at preventing people from sharing sexually explicit photos of their ex-partners online, then-state Rep. Matt Gaetz cast one of just two House votes against it.

Six years later, with the now-congressman accused of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl and sharing photographs of nude women with fellow lawmakers, the sponsor of the Florida legislation says Gaetz opposed it because he believed recipients of such images could use them however they wanted.

Tom Goodson, a Republican who retired from the Florida state House in 2018, told the Orlando Sentinel on Monday that Gaetz was the leading opponent of the nonconsensual pornography bill he spent years trying to pass. He described a meeting in which Gaetz said that if a person gives an intimate photo to a romantic partner, the image becomes the property of the recipient.

“Matt was absolutely against it. He thought the picture was his to do with what he wanted,” Goodson said, according to the newspaper. “He thought that any picture was his to use as he wanted to, as an expression of his rights.”

Representatives for Gaetz, who burnished an image as a Trump loyalist after his 2016 election to the U.S. House, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The Panhandle Republican is being investigated by the Justice Department over allegations that he had an intimate relationship with the 17-year-old and paid for her travel. Investigators are also looking into whether he paid for sex with women in violation of federal sex-trafficking laws.

After news of the probe broke last week, two people told The Washington Post that Gaetz had boasted to people in Florida political circles about meeting women through a former county tax collector who is now charged with sex trafficking of a minor. Gaetz has denied the allegations, claiming the Justice Department is attempting to criminalize legal conduct and his family is being extorted.

Goodson could not be reached Tuesday. An email from his company, Goodson Paving, said the former lawmaker would not be providing further comment.

“The Orlando Sentinel quoted him exactly and he has nothing else to add,” it said.

During his six years in the Florida Legislature, Gaetz, the son of a former Florida Senate president, saw his profile rise quickly. He was, the Orlando Sentinel reported, “a powerful opponent to legislation he didn’t like — like the bill to outlaw nonconsensual porn.”

Efforts to pass legislation tackling what is sometimes called “revenge porn” dated back to 2013, the newspaper reported. In 2014, a bill cleared the Senate, but the House version, which Goodson sponsored with 17 other legislators, died in a criminal justice subcommittee. At the time, the subcommittee was chaired by Gaetz.

Speaking anonymously, lawmakers and lobbyists involved with the bill pointed to Gaetz as one of the chief opponents, Florida Trend reported around that time. But they would not say so publicly.

“If you crossed him, he was after you,” Goodson told the Orlando Sentinel on Monday.

There was bad blood between the two lawmakers over other issues, as well, according to Florida Trend. A microphone caught Goodson using an expletive to describe Gaetz in 2014 after Gaetz questioned him about an arcane piece of legislation in what the outlet described as an apparent effort to make him look “unprepared or foolish.”

In 2015, the nonconsensual pornography bill finally passed. Besides Gaetz, the only other no vote in the House came from then-Rep. John Tobia, his former roommate in Tallahassee. Tobia, now a Brevard County commissioner, did not respond to an email seeking comment on the legislation.

The bill signed into law was a watered-down version of what was first proposed, the Orlando Sentinel reported. While the Senate version would have made it illegal to text or email explicit photos without consent, the House narrowed the scope to images posted online. Emails and texts remained legal.

The Senate had to accept the weaker version when the House’s speaker suddenly ended its session early during a fight between the two chambers over Medicaid legislation. Lawmakers who supported the legislation were critical of the changes, with Republican state Sen. David Simmons telling Florida Trend the bill that passed had “major defects.”

Florida legislators ultimately strengthened the law in 2019, three years after Gaetz departed for Washington, updating it to include photos shared through text messages and “other electronic means.”

"Amid federal probe, Matt Gaetz will speak to conservative women’s group at Trump golf course"

Quote

In the week since news broke that the Justice Department is investigating claims that Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) paid for sex with multiple women, including a 17-year-old girl, the Trump ally has largely stayed out of the public eye save for an interview on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show to deny the allegations.

Now, Gaetz is planning to take center stage later this week as a keynote speaker at a conservative women’s group’s conference at former president Donald Trump’s Miami golf course.

Women for America First, a nonprofit organization of Trump loyalists, orchestrated and publicized a rally on Jan. 6 before the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, and also led bus tours nationwide spreading unfounded claims of election fraud.

“We know firsthand what it is like to be treated unfairly by the main stream media,” Amy Kremer, the group’s chairwoman, said in a statement to The Washington Post that defended Gaetz as “innocent until proven guilty.”

The event, called the “Save America Summit,” begins Thursday at Trump’s Doral golf resort and also includes appearances from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.).

Gaetz’s appearance comes as he faces an ongoing Department of Justice investigation into accusations of sexual relationships with underage women in violation of sex trafficking laws. The probe began after Joel Greenberg, a former Florida tax collector now charged with stalking and sex trafficking of a minor, told investigators that Gaetz had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old and paid for her travel with him.

On Friday, The Washington Post reported that Gaetz repeatedly bragged to several Florida politicians about meeting women through Greenberg. The Post also reported that on multiple occasions Gaetz showed colleagues images of naked women.

Gaetz has denied any wrongdoing and claimed his family is being extorted. The FBI is separately looking into those allegations.

Women for America First called Gaetz a “fearless leader in DC” in a tweet Tuesday announcing his appearance at the conference. Kremer suggested the allegations against Gaetz were a partisan plot.

“We know that partisan political witch hunts are standard operating procedure for many in the media,” she said in a statement to The Post.

Kremer’s group organized a “Stop the Steal” rally in the Washington in November that drew thousands. In December, it planned a “March for Trump” in D.C., that devolved into violence as extremist groups, including the Proud Boys, brawled with anti-Trump protesters. By the end of the night, there were four stabbings and nearly three dozen arrests.

In the weeks leading up to the Jan. 6 insurrection, Women for America First held a cross-country bus tour. During the stops in 20 cities, the group held rallies where speakers repeated Trump’s false claims of a stolen election, according to a BuzzFeed News investigation.

On Jan. 5, the group received a permit for a rally the following day on the Ellipse, just outside the White House, and for an another “March for Trump.” Speaking to a crowd the morning of Jan. 6, Kremer repeated Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud, saying, “You guys, we cannot back down.”

At my previous job we had to do the harassment training and one of the scenarios they presented was a douche cannon sharing photos of his female coworkers that were offensive, leading to him being summoned to a meeting where it was implied he was going to be invited to work elsewhere.

In a lot of private companies or government bodies CongressBro would have been fired the first time he did that.  If he was in charge of a publicly traded corporation he would have been ousted a long time ago.  Even a family business might have ousted him to keep their business from going to shit.  

If someone waddled up to me at work to show them "their conquests" I would have reported it without hesitation up the chain because I wouldn't want to work with someone like that.

Like I've been saying, so much of CongressBro's past behavior makes a lot more sense now that we know all these things about him.  Whether it's voting against human trafficking measures or against this revenge porn bill it makes more sense knowing that CongressBro is a douchey pervert that would give Caligula a run for his money.

I know it rhymes well with his name, but could we stop calling him Matt the brat? I don't usually comment on these things; Rufus knows I've coined a few choice names myself. I don't mean to offend, but this one bothers me somehow. A brat is a child-- at most a teen. Calling Gates that equates him to a much younger age than he actually is. Dude is a grown ass man who's near forty who likes to bed teenage girls more than half his age.

He's not a brat. He's a disgusting, creepy adult.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
