In the realm of a “couldn’t happen to a nicer guy” category of reports, this one really blows my mind.
U.S. Rep Matt Gaetz, a Florida Republican and staunch culture warrior along with being a strident supporter of Donald John Trump, is now being investigated for engaging in a sexual relationship with an underage girl. What’s more, Gaetz is being looked at in a case of sex trafficking.
This is according to the New York Times. Other media have picked up the story.
Gaetz denies the accusation. That’s to be expected.
What is astonishing in the extreme is that this case involves a loudmouth TEA Party/Freedom Caucus conservative who holds himself up as a champion of old-fashioned cultural standards.
This guy is a standard, run-of-the-mill chump. Pure and simple. Now he might be a criminal … allegedly.
