Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) got dealt a gigantic dose of karma when he showed up at a California beach and agreed to pose with a man who called him a pedophile.
Gaetz is in the Golden State with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) for one of their pathetic “America First” rallies, and that’s where the good people at MeidasTouch.com had apparently arranged for a seemingly friendly supporter to approach Gaetz and tell him:
A man who appears to be some sort of security guard then enters the frame and breaks up the fun. Take a look:
Gaetz is indeed suspected of being fond of underage girls and is currently under investigation for sexually trafficking a child across state lines, which is a federal crime. One of his alleged co-conspirators is already cooperating with prosecutors and telling everything he knows about Gaetz’s after hours activities.
If Congressman Gaetz thinks things are bad now, just wait until he’s standing before a federal judge trying to explain why he enjoys hanging out around high schools so he can scope out victims.
Matt Gaetz is desperate, and he’s already acting like a guilty man.
The Florida Republican congressman is facing charges of sexually trafficking underage girls, so he decided he’d hire attorneys who have experience defending others who have exploited young girls in the past, according toThe Washington Post:
“Rep. Matt Gaetz’s campaign paid $25,000 in June to a Manhattan criminal defense attorney who lists Jeffrey Epstein, the convicted sex offender who killed himself in prison, as a notable client, according to a filing Thursday with the Federal Election Commission.
“The Florida Republican and acolyte of former president Donald Trump is under investigation for possible sex trafficking of a minor. A spokesman for Gaetz did not address the payment but touted the congressman’s fundraising haul, which totaled more than $1.3 million in the second quarter of the year.
“The June payment, for legal consulting, went to the law office of Marc Fernich, whose website says he specializes in ‘subtle, novel and creative arguments that other attorneys may miss.'”
Subtle, novel, and creative. Three words that will never be associated with Gaetz, who continues to tour the country with fellow disgraced member of Congress, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who has be stripped of her committee assignments by GOP leadership in the House.
Rather than address the fact that Gaetz is now employing the same attorney that was once on the payroll of Jeffrey Epstein — who was also a longtime friend of failed, one-term former President Donald Trump — Harlan Hill, a spokesperson for the Florida Republican, bragged:
Those same donors are likely to abandon Gaetz just as soon as he’s indicted and charged with crimes that could send him to prison for the rest of his life if he’s found guilty.
So congrats, Matty boy! Your fundraising is going great, and the rest of your life is shit. That’s what you get for hanging out at high schools and paying girls to go on dates with you.
A couple of months ago, if you turned on any of the Fox News primetime shows hosted by Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, or Laura Ingraham, you were almost guaranteed to see Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) holding forth on any number of subjects and proving his own lack of comprehension on an almost nightly basis. In March alone, Gaetz appeared on Fox shows 19 times, an incredible number for a congressman who has made his name almost solely by being willing to praise failed, one-term former President Donald Trump no matter what.
But those days are long gone, and Fox News has essentially “excommunicated” the Florida Republican, according to a revealing article from Business Insider:
“Since news broke that Gaetz is at the center of a federal sex-trafficking investigation — and after an interview with Fox host Tucker Carlson in March that the host dubbed ‘one of the weirdest’ he’d ever done — the Florida Republican hasn’t appeared on the network.
It’s a major lifestyle change for the lawmaker, who was a darling of Fox hosts for years during the Trump administration and early into Biden’s term. He juices ratings with punchy soundbites that trash ‘wokeness,’ ‘cancel culture,’ and the COVID-19 poster doctor Anthony Fauci.”
The allegations against Gaetz have resulted in him having made a total of ZERO appearances on Fox in April, May, and now halfway through the month of June.
Clearly, the Fox-Gaetz love affair is over with thanks, it appears, to Gaetz’s own sick search for love (or illegal one-night stands) among underage girls.
And yes, Fox has indeed pushed Gaetz to the curb because of the baggage that he’s carrying:
“It’s not worth it for the conservative network to risk putting Gaetz on its airwaves while the high-profile sex-trafficking investigation is playing out, according to Republican insiders and media watchdogs.
“Gaetz hurt his relationship with Carlson during his infamous March 30 interview, sources told Insider. Carlson had invited Gaetz on the show to give him a platform to respond to the breaking news about the federal investigation.
“The interview took an unexpected turn when Gaetz said that Carlson, too, had been ‘falsely accused of a terrible sex act.'”
Afterwards, Carlson was said to be “pissed” by what had just transpired, and insiders say the Fox host will never allow Gaetz back on his show no matter how the sex crime allegations turn out:
That’s bad news for Gaetz because Fox was his main platform for spreading his inanity to the right-wing masses. And since he’s up for reelection next year, that could prove to be a very big loss for the congressman.
If Gaetz thinks he’s toxic now, the second he’s indicted, he can count on the vast majority of his GOP colleagues turning their backs on him, too. They might even begin calling for his expulsion from the House.
This is not a good time to be Matt Gaetz. About the only person in as much legal jeopardy as him is none other than Donald Trump himself, and even the Donald has distanced himself from his one-time biggest cheerleader. When you’re too radioactive for Trump, you know you’re screwed.
To put it mildly, things are not going well for Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is under federal investigation for allegedly sexually trafficking an underage girl and other disgusting shenanigans that could send him to prison for 10 years to life.
Recently, we learned that Gaetz’s longtime friend Joel Greenberg has agreed to enter a guilty plea on charges of sex trafficking and was now cooperating with federal prosecutors in exchange for leniency when sentence is handed down.
And then reports came out that Gatez’s ex-girlfriend is also working with the feds to bring the Florida Republican to justice, with CNN reporting:
“The woman, a former Capitol Hill staffer, is seen as a critical witness, as she has been linked to Gaetz as far back as the summer of 2017, a period of time that has emerged as a key window of scrutiny for investigators. She can also help investigators understand the relevance of hundreds of transactions they have obtained records of, including those involving alleged payments for sex, the sources said.”
Clearly, this has been the weeks from hell for Matty, and he probably didn’t think the situation could get any worse or more humiliating for him.
Until it did.
While he was in Ohio trying to pretend he’s not on the verge of being hit with indictments, Gaetz got trolled by some in the audience who began singing:
Now that is some epic trolling, and it set off laughter all over Twitter:
Matt Gaetz is indeed in a world of shit. And he deserves to be laughed at. So let’s make sure we share that video all over social media so it can go viral and humiliate Matty even further.
Based on new information from two reporters working for The Daily Beast, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) might want to get things in order and enjoy the next few days of freedom, because it appears he’s on the verge of being charged with crimes including sex trafficking an underage girl and wire fraud.
Reporters Jose Pagliery and Roger Sollenberger were guests on the “Fever Dreams” podcast and made clear that the days ahead are likely to be very bad for Gaetz, especially since his friend and “wingman,” Joel Greenberg, is expected ink a cooperation agreement with federal prosecutors by May 15, which is the deadline he’s been given, according to Pagliery:
The two reporters also revealed that they’ve been able to source much of their reporting from people who had ties to Gaetz and Greenberg and are now spilling their guts on Instagram:
All of this comes as CNN is reporting that prosecutors are indeed looking at those who have connections to Gaetz and flipping them for testimony against the Florida Republican:
“The cooperation of Greenberg and the former girlfriend could be among the final steps in the probe of Gaetz. Investigators view both as crucial to understanding the relevance of hundreds of transactions they have obtained records of, including those involving payments for sex. The ex-girlfriend could also be questioned by investigators about a second woman as they try to determine whether Gaetz may have slept with that woman when she was only 17.”
Gaetz, who has repeatedly denied that he did anything wrong, is facing more than just a slap on the wrist if he’s found guilty of sexually trafficking a minor. That crime alone could earn him a life sentence in federal prison.
