Matt Gaetz is, to borrow a phrase made famous by a former president, “in deep doo-doo.”
The U.S. House ethics committee is now investigating allegations that the Republican Florida congressman had sex with an underage girl and that he might have engaged in sex trafficking.
Ohhhh, ouch, man!
Gaetz denies it all. He calls it a conspiracy by lefty media types and assorted political opponents.
I happen to think the allegations have enough legs to run a long way. That’s just me.
What needs to happen, though, is if the House ethics panel finds wrongdoing it needs to recommend severe sanctions against Gaetz. Removal from key committee assignments isn’t enough. He needs to get the boot from the people’s House, from my House, your House.
This disgusting individual masquerading as a principled conservative is nothing more than a shill for Donald Trump, the ex-president who continues to pitch The Big Lie about the outcome of the 2020 presidential election … which Gaetz continues to convey to anyone gullible enough to believe it.
Now he’s getting pressure to quit from none other than fellow Republican U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, which isn’t surprising, given that Kinzinger was one of 10 Republican House members to vote to impeach Trump after the then-president incited the Jan. 6 insurrection.
This saga involving Matt Gaetz is only get even more tawdry.
This clown needs to go. As in right now!
