Noted Florida Republican Eviscerates ‘Shameful’ Matt Gaetz For Using Supporter’s Money To Exploit Underage Girls

A noted Florida Republican politician used an op-ed to destroy Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) for allegedly engaging the “shameful” crime of sexually trafficking underage girls.

Writing in The Pensacola News Journal, Mark Lombardo notes that his father gave money to Gaetz, only to see it used for defense attorneys the congressman had to hire in order to try and fend off allegations that he slept with underage girls and then paid them:

“Like all of Matt Gaetz’s donors, my dad trusted him to use that money to further conservative ideals. Had my father known that Gaetz would use his money to pay pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s attorney, he would have never given him a penny.”

Yes, Gaetz did indeed hire an attorney who once worked for Epstein, as The Washington Post reported in June of last year:

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 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.”

Lombardo goes on to explain that many voters feel betrayed by Gaetz:

“Gaetz broke my dad’s, and thousands of other donors’ trust when he used their money to pay the attorney most known for defending the world’s worst child-sex trafficker. To think that money my dad earned as a decorated combat veteran on the field of battle went to Gaetz’s sex-trafficking defense infuriates me and my family.

“In addition, knowing Gaetz raises money from elderly and working-class people under the deception of making America great and then uses that money for defending himself against charges that have nothing to do with his work in Congress or campaign, is shameful. It’s a total betrayal of trust.”

Perhaps most troubling of all, Lombardo says, is that Gaetz serves on the House Armed Services Committee, and his alleged illegal sexual predilections made him susceptible to blackmail by a hostile foreign government:

“An even bigger betrayal is that Gaetz put himself into a position that he needed a sex-trafficking defense attorney while serving on the Congressional Armed Services Committee.

“As a member of the Committee, Gaetz has access to Top Secret, classified information. Anyone who has worked in national security or for the military knows that engaging in prostitution, orgies, sex trafficking, and illegal drug use while holding a security clearance leaves them vulnerable to blackmail by foreign intelligence agents. This is especially true for senior government officials who partake in illicit activities on foreign soil – like Gaetz is reported to have done.”

Even though Gaetz is likely headed for re-election in November, his days in Congress are probably limited, as the Justice Department is expected to file charges against the congressman that, if he’s found guilty, could send him to prison for the rest of his life.

GOP WTF?!

WATCH: Petulant Ted Cruz Slams His Boot On The Desk At Senate Hearing With FBI Director

In his effort to keep his #1 ranking as the most hated person in the United States Senate, Ted Cruz (R-TX) used a boot as a prop at a hearing on Thursday with FBI Director Christopher Wray, slamming it on the table as he asked a question.

Cruz had his panties in a wad over what he claimed was an FBI memo that identified some symbols being associated with violent militias that were seen on display during the January 6 Capitol insurrection.

Some of those symbols included the Gadsden “Don’t Tread on Me” Flag and the Gonzales “Come and Take It” Flag, that most of us have seen.

That led Cruz to tell Wray:

“Also included on this is a text that I was particularly struck is the Gonzales battle flag, ‘come and take it,’ as indicative of being a violent extremist militia. Well, I will self report right now that every day in the Senate I wear my boots that have the Gonzales battle flag on the back.”

With that, Cruz slammed one of the boots up on the table and continued his petulant rant:

“Director Ray, what are y’all doing? This makes no sense. Do you agree with this FBI guidance that the Betsy Ross flag and the Gadsden flag and the Gonzales battle flag are signs of militia violent extremism?”

Wray told Cruz:

“Well, Senator. I’m not familiar with the particular document you have behind you.

“And I’m not in the practice of trying to comment on documents that I haven’t recognized, but I will tell you that when we put out intelligence products, including ones that reference symbols, which we do, across a wide variety of contexts, we usually make great pains, take great pains, to put caveats and warnings in the document to make clear that a symbol alone is not considered evidence of violent extremism.”

However, one good thing did come out of today’s hearing: We now know that Ted Cruz is also the biggest, whiniest little baby in the Senate, too.

David Hogg Slam Dunks MT Greene After She Whines About His Refusal To Meet With Her

Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg expertly clapped back at Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) after she whined about his refusal to meet with her when he’ll be in Washington, D.C. later this week for a protest to call for sensible gun control legislation.

Greene attacked Hogg on Twitter:

“I hear you & your girls are funded to come to town this week to once again try to manipulate some of my gutless weak colleagues to vote for gun control that will violate our freedoms and leave Americans defenseless.”

That was all Hogg needed to masterfully destroy the Georgia Republican, reminding her that she only wants to meet with him so she can draw attention to herself and her extremist position on the issue of guns in the United States.

“Congresswoman Greene, I’m more interested in protecting children and meeting commonsense people who are looking for reasonable solutions to stop children from dying. Don’t really have time to help you go viral for attacking survivors so you can fundraise. Respectfully, David.”

Newsweek reports that Hogg and Greene have engaged in a social media debate before on the issue of guns:

It’s not the first time the pair have sparred on Twitter. The Georgia Republican harangued Hogg in April about his stance on guns.

Hogg tweeted on April 3 that he believes it should be a requirement to have a license to purchase a gun.

Greene responded by suggesting Hogg hang out “with actual deer hunters” because it would help him “learn to be more masculine and you will appreciate how we will get our food supply when Biden’s inflation makes buying food unaffordable.”

Others on Twitter also had some choice words for Greene, who has been known to raffle off semiautomatic weapons in order to draw attention to herself. Considering that Greene is facing an uncertain bid for reelection, she’s likely doing the same thing with her jabs at Hogg.

Ted Cruz Says Disney Will Soon Have Cartoons Of ‘Mickey And Pluto Going At It’ In The Bedroom

It’s a given that Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz is a human hemorrhoid who just so happens to wear a suit and tie and grow a grubby looking beard that seems more suitable on a serial killer or perverted neighbor who likes to steal women’s underwear off the nearest clothesline.

But now we know what a sick, twisted, and downright demented excuse of a person Cruz is as a result of remarks he made in a disgusting attack on the Walt Disney Company, which has made it clear they don’t support the controversial “Don’t Say Gay” legislation that was recently signed by Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis.

On his “Verdict” podcast, Cruz launched a demented and downright disgusting attack on Disney, telling listeners:

“I think there are people who are misguided, trying to drive Disney stepping in saying, you know, in every episode now they’re going to have, you know, Mickey and Pluto going at it.”

The Texas senator then added:

“But it’s just like, come on, guys, these are kids and, you know, you could always shift to Cinemax if you want that. Like, I’m a dad, it used to be that you could put your kids on the Disney channel and be like, all right, something innocuous will happen.”

So just because Disney doesn’t support state-sanctioned discrimination against LGBTQ Americans, that means they’re suddenly going to start showing smut on their channels? That’s almost as absurd as the rumor that Ted Cruz is an adult when he’s actually little more than a adolescent with the brain of a seven-year-old boy in desperate need of some Adderall.

Twitter wasted no time letting Cruz know that his remarks sounded more like a reflection of his own fantasies than something Disney would produce:

Former Aide To Madison Cawthorn Excoriates Her Ex-Boss: ‘Bad Person – Habitual Liar’

A former aide to embattled Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC)  has filed an employment-related complaint about her ex-boss, calling him a “bad person” who is also a “habitual liar.”

The Smoky Mountain News reports:

“What he’s done to me was illegal, morally wrong, you name it, it’s been done,” Wiggins said in a phone call to David Wheeler, co-founder of nonpartisan advocacy PAC American Muckrakers, more commonly known as Fire Madison Cawthorn.

Wiggins added that Cawthorn seems unwilling to meet with his constituents unless its reelection time and he needs their votes:

“He doesn’t care about his constituents. He does not care.

“If you come from Cherokee County you’re driving five hours to see your congressman. But you can’t see your congressman anyway when you go to the office. There’s no way you can get a meeting with him unless he’s trying to pull some votes and that’s about the only way.”

Additionally, Wiggins noted that not only is Cawthorn bad at the job he was elected to do, he’s also a terrible human being:

“As far as the candidate himself, I mean, he’s just a bad person. He’s a habitual liar and he’s going to say and do anything he can to your face but behind your back he’s completely opposite. There’s some good stories I have – a lot of good stories.”

Will Cawthorn survive the upcoming GOP primary in North Carolina? Wiggins says she’s hopeful he won’t and is backing one of his challengers, retired Army Col. Rod Honeycutt:

“The main goal here is that he does not get that 30 plus 1 percent. I don’t feel like he’s gonna get it. I just don’t feel like he’s gonna run away with it on May 17.”

Cawthorn has fallen out of favor with his fellow Republicans in Congress for claiming that he had been invited to orgies hosted by other members of the GOP where cocaine was used. He later walked back those comments, but not before he was slammed as an “embarrassment” by North Carolina Republican Sen. Thom Tillis.

The congressman is also facing a severe shortage of cash to run his campaign. A recent financial filing shows that Cawthorn only has $115,575 on hand and is spending more than he’s taking in.
