Report: Dept. of Justice investigating Rep. Matt Gaetz for possible sexual relationship with a 17-year-old

Well this is awkward…

The Justice Department is investigating whether Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl and violated federal laws against sex trafficking in the process, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

The inquiry is part of a larger probe into Joel Greenberg, a local Florida official associated with Gaetz who was charged last year with 14 felony counts related to allegations that he stalked a political opponent, used a state database to create fake IDs, and sex trafficked a minor between the ages of 14 and 17.

Obviously Rep. Gaetz is innocent until proven guilty, but his ties to Joel Greenberg remind me of a saying my grandparents used to say to me: if you lay down with dogs you’re bound to come up with fleas.

  1. Yes, this is an awkward attack, and in the light of Gaetz having just teamed up with Ro Khanna to essentially challenge future war spending, albeit the Defense Dept, their lobbyists and MIC contractors being directly questioned and challenged in a bipartisan manner, I’m waiting before making any judgements on this charge against Gaetz and where these potential smears and attacks on personal moral integrity might be originating from.

    Though I haven’t read the tweets, I understand Ro Khanna is getting serious and heavy flack from the supposed “left” for fraternizing with the ideological “right,” on this legislation.

    51 years of opposing war and US imperialist aggression and murder and regime change, deposing democratically elected rulers from Latin America to SE Asia to the Middle East as our own country and we the people pay the price in income inequality, infrastructure and healthcare neglect by, etc., I’m thrilled to finally see a bipartisan bill to limit our US instigated insistence on pursuing and furthering the perpetual war on terror.
