Lately Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz has been in a “spot of bother,” as the Brits say.
On Tuesday The New York Times reported that Gaetz is under investigation by the Justice Department for alleged sex trafficking involving a 17-year-old girl.
Now CNN reports:
Gaetz allegedly showed off to other lawmakers photos and videos of nude women he said he had slept with, the sources told CNN, including while on the House floor. The sources, including two people directly shown the material, said Gaetz displayed the images of women on his phone and talked about having sex with them. One of the videos showed a naked woman with a hula hoop, according to one source.”
It was a point of pride,” one of the sources said of Gaetz.
Based on available evidence, it’s reasonable to conclude that Gaetz is an utter sleazeball whom no decent human being would want anything to do with.
So– at a minimum– I hope Congressman Cline will (1) call for Gaetz’s ouster from the House Freedom Caucus, of which they are both members, (2) resign from the caucus if Gaetz remains a member and (3) return the generous $2,000 campaign contribution he received from Gaetz’s campaign committee on September 17, 2020.
