    1. @Erik Rivas Not in today’s political climate. After “Me, Too” and Epstein he won’t be able to get off completely.

    2. @Eric Rivas Epstein was charged in a FL state court. Gaetz will be tried in a Federal court in FL.

    3. @OneThrough8-So if he is convicted he will be sent to a”Club Fed” instead of say a real prison.

    4. @OneThrough8 …. why was Epstein not tried in a federal court, he committed a Federal Crime, did he not???

    1. I don’t understand why Aronberg said/thinks Greeneburg leaked the letter as a way to get a better plea deal. Wouldn’t he have a chance at a better deal if they think there’s a chance Gaetz isn’t aware of the all of the evidence Greeneburg has or, at least, how much of the beans Greenburg is willing to spill? Was that a “Photograph” reference to a song or to something in Greenburg’s possession?

    2. @ROFFLESTOMP I thought Gaetz talked some nonsense but you’re pushing him hard. Rush are the Canadian Rush, nothing more.

    3. @John Smith I remember a congressional committee where Gaetz made a hypocritical crack about Hunter Biden’s addiction ,and someone brought up dui’s which caused laughter to erupt.Not only did big daddy Gaetz get Jr off that charge but the cop actually got fired. Hey that’s Florida.

  1. No, You’re not disliked in some corners of the internet.
    You’re disliked roundly by the internet.

    1. Matt Gaetz does look creepy. Seems like Gaetz’ biggest problem is that he had to pay a girl to get a date, and he still ended up getting screwed worse than she did.

    1. Many people think he’s being setup by “the demon worshiping sexual deviant democrats”

    2. I’m praying for Gaetz to cry out to Jesus while he’s in prison, which is where he’s going..it could teach him quite a bit..maybe he’ll repent,once he has time to slow down and take honest stock of his life.. without Daddy paying for all his crimes..

  2. Joel will flip on Matt in a heartbeat……DOJ pls place Matt in a Florida penitentiary to make homie feel at “home”!!

    1. I can’t stand Gaetz, but I am wondering if this is blown up for publicity. Honestly, he dreams that beautiful women will be flocking by his side. The guy is a dork.

    2. @Debra Deroos Let’s see we have a confession well a snitch letter. You have Stone charging for pardons you have A 17 YEAR OLD GIRL NOT WOMAN A GIRL A CHILD. So nope not blown out of perportion.

    3. Bubba awaits… the door slams behind matty. a deep voice in the darkness “get them panties off”

    1. Maybe Trump can pardon Gaetz? Gaetz believes Trump is still the president right? Maybe if he believes hard enough, the pardon will count?

    2. @Billy Pardew Greenberg, a now-former local GOP official in Seminole County, was under tremendous pressure at the time, as the case against him was building. Greenberg and Gaetz  used gas money, gifts, rent, or partial tuition payments, to several of these girls, including the individual who was not yet 18. They used Venmo, Cash Apps or other payments to send money to the females they were involved with. That situation conjures memories of former Cincinnati mayor Jerry Springer (yes, that Jerry Springer), paying a prostitute with a check. Greenberg also has a history of writing, shall we say, ill-advised letters and perhaps he thought admitting to it while saying they didn’t know the girl was underage might make it seem less bad (though generally speaking, that doesn’t matter from a legal standpoint). All verifiable + traceable…js

    1. He’s got “Foxitis” and now he’s on a WH ite supremacy tour. I hope he gets what’s coming to him. The cold iron bars in his hands and the orange jumpsuit sitting next to Trump and the 13 other seditious GOP members

    1. @John Armstrong you better hope they don’t find fraud oh yeah you will wish they were q

  3. If you ever feel like a loser, remember

    Matt Gaetz didn’t get a high school girlfriend until he was 38.

    1. And now he has cougar Maggot Taylor Greene! I’ll bet their staying in the same hotel having clandestine rendezvous and she’s pretending she’s 17!

    2. Thats because he looks like a cross between a rodant and a Virgle Tracey from the Thunderbirds on a bad hair day

  4. While they messing with Ms cheany they should of had this perv clean out his desk. Such dual hyprocrasy

    1. They think that opposing Trump is worse than messing with underage girls. If a Democrat was accused of this crime, they would not stop talking about it.

  5. He laughing to keep from crying and his man looking friend beside him is mad because she was striped from her assignments just a bunch of criminals

  6. Gaetz was spotted having dinner with his girlfriend, he had the veal oscar and a glass of wine, and she had the chicken nuggets and a snickerdoodle shake with a crazy straw.

    1. When Trump said he was going to drain the swamp, I didn’t realize he was talking about his own party.

  7. I’m so sick of all these lying corrupt politicians. I’ll be glad when indictments start coming down!

  8. Matt Gaetz birthday. As a present to himself he did a line of coke, took some Molly, tried to seduce Molly’s daughter and promised to get her back over state lines before midnight. Therefore, he’s the leader for the Republican nomination for 2024

  9. I wouldn’t be surprised that he’s not hanging out with Marjorie just to spend time with her daughters.

  10. Gaetz messed with a 17 years old minor and Greene messed with Hogg, a kid who survived a school mass shooting. THEY’RE DEPLORABLES.

    1. They have graduated to DESPICABLES. While simultaneously being downgraded to grade A nincompoops.
