This will be opening the floodgates for much more minor events and we'll probably be seeing this sort of thing much more often, from both sides.
Shows how inexperienced MTG and Gaetz are as legislators. Same thing happened when the flag clothed guy got close enough to put his arm around Gaetz.

Gaetz' wingman used his office to improperly access confidential records on more than 700 people.

I guess he couldn't leave Britney alone.

Quote:
ORLANDO, Fla. — During his time as Seminole County’s tax collector, Joel Greenberg used a confidential database to look up the personal information of fellow elected officials, political rivals, county employees, family members and even celebrities — including Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake — newly released records show.

...

More commonly referred to as DAVID, access to the database system Greenberg used is mostly limited to criminal justice and law enforcement officials, including police officers and deputy sheriffs while on patrol. It allows users to quickly look up a person’s information, such as Social Security number, birth date, addresses, signatures, and medical and disability information.

In Greenberg’s plea deal, he admitted to using the system to “investigate his sexual partners,” including the 17-year-old girl who is the victim in the sex trafficking count. He claimed that he looked the girl up through DAVID in September 2017 “because he had reason to believe” she was underage.

I consider Business Insider a fairly reliable source. They came out with this report today and it links and Gaetz to some pretty sketchy stuff. The highlights:

Quote:
The text messages appear to show Greenberg asking the woman if she was of legal age and whether she would take drugs, ABC reported. He then asked whether she'd like to meet up with him and Gaetz, and he added, "And how much of an allowance will you be requiring ," the report said.

The woman replied that she had a friend who introduced her to the website that she could bring. She also said that she "usually" requires "$400 per meet," the report said.
There wouldn't be a party without the drugs!

Quote:
He then asked her if she had ever tried MDMA.
The ladies LOVE Gaetz:

Quote:
ABC News reported that Greenberg subsequently sent the woman a photo of Gaetz taking a selfie with Pea Ridge Elementary School students in 2017. He wrote, "My friend." The woman is said to have replied, "Oooh my friend thinks he's really cute!"
The man is such a dick whistle.

It's almost like the QAnon stuff about the liberal elites trafficking underage people for sex is a case of psychological projection?

The FBI confirmed its agents had arrested Lazzaro in Minneapolis this morning. And the indictment was unsealed in federal court Thursday afternoon during his initial appearance in federal court in St. Paul, Minnesota, which took place over a video conference.

His personal website shows [Lazzaro] alongside Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and multiple television appearances on Fox News. On social media, Lazzaro shows himself sitting on private jets, waving stacks of cash, and driving shirtless in his red Ferrari.
Shirtless in your red Ferrari is no way to go through life, son.

The real crime is that he didn't buy an American car!

Child molesters should have the good sense to buy domestic.

Why, it's almost as if rich men think they're entitled to sexually harass/assault women or sleep with underaged girls!

Is he planning on running for a Republican political seat? He's a shoe in!

And the noose tightens:

Quote:
A Republican strategist was arrested Thursday on several counts of sex trafficking, conspiracy, and obstruction of justice.

The Daily Beast first reported the news, and FBI confirmed Lazzaro's arrest in Minneapolis on Thursday morning. A ten-count indictment against him was unsealed in federal court in the afternoon.

According to the indictment, Lazzaro has been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of minors, five counts of sex trafficking of minors, one count of attempted sex trafficking of a minor, and three counts of obstruction of justice.
This is the "Big Tent Republicans" guy, according to him.

Ah, the good old whataboutism. Even if the creep ratio was the same between lerft and right pols--and I'll bet it's not--it's the hypocritical chest thumping by these disingenuous poseurs as being of the "Party of family values." With the GQP I see ironclad affirmation of the old saw about "he who crows loudest." Or, "Methinks he doth protest too much."

Did you see me supporting Cuomo? No. I said he needed to resign.

Maybe if the Republicans didn't elect a man to the presidency who was a self-admitted "***** grabber", bragged about hitting on a married woman, and claimed he didn't have to wait for permission to kiss a woman because he was a celebrity, and was accused by 26 women of rape to groping to being pushed up against a wall and kissed while his wife was upstairs with their newborn..then you might have a leg to stand on. Can you name a Democrat who has said such things that were revealed before an election and then been elected? So don't give me this whatabout crap.

Wow. I was agreeing with you about the sense of entitlement among some rich powerful (mostly white)guys. I was thinking of Clinton, Ted Kennedy and maybe Trump, just off the top of my head.

I was not trying to whatabout today’s dems or whatever.

Sorry if I misread your intentions. But there's so much whataboutism in these threads it's easy to do, especially when you added in "dems".

Yet another.... questionable... action by Matt "Is she legal yet? Don't matter" Gaetz...

From: The Daily Beast
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) appears to have committed at least one much smaller but more straightforward federal violation: failure to disclose how much money he made from a book he published last September....Brett Kappel, an attorney who specializes in government compliance...“Filing an incomplete financial disclosure report is a violation of both the Ethics in Government Act and the House rules,” Kappel said. “The fact that Rep. Gaetz quickly filed an amended report, however, likely means he will suffer no consequences.”

Remember folks... the Republicans are the "Law and Order" party.

Yeah, they never get in trouble for stuff like that. Look at Rand Paul, and others, when it comes to stocks. Dem or Repub, they seem to skate without an issue.

And the Gaetz issues keep coming...

From: The Daily Beast
On the day Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial began in the Senate, the campaign for embattled Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL)...made by far its largest ever political contribution: $100,000 to a mysterious nonprofit created to defend the then-president.... the nonprofit appears to have done nothing now for more than a year. And even odder is the Gaetz campaign’s own explanation—which experts say raises questions of legality...The group, “Right Direction America,” is a nonprofit launched in December 2019...A campaign spokesperson told The Daily Beast that the organization supports former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who...had announced her 2022 campaign for governor of Arkansas....But there’s no public record of RDA supporting Sanders...Further complicating the ...explanation that RDA supports Sanders, the group’s nonprofit status bars it from participating primarily in political activity.

So, a huge donation to a group that supposedly did nothing with the money, to help a candidate who wasn't even supported by the group (but if they did support her, it might have been illegal).

That depends on what the investigation re sex trafficking of a minor comes up with. He may be leaving the House for the Big House.

As has been mentioned before, if you swing for the king you better not miss.

Gaetz isn't exactly "a king" but you are going to want an airtight case.
