Since federal prosecutors obtained the cooperation of GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz’s as soon as close-ally in Could, sources inform ABC Information the continuing investigation, which incorporates intercourse trafficking allegations involving Gaetz, has engulfed the tight-knit Central Florida political scene as prosecutors proceed their investigation of the Florida congressman.
Former Seminole County tax collector Joel Greenberg, who reached a plea deal final month, has been aiding federal brokers within the sprawling probe that has not too long ago revved up its give attention to alleged corruption and fraud stemming from Greenberg’s time in workplace and past, a number of sources accustomed to the matter informed ABC Information.
Oooh, that doesn’t sound good.
However right here’s the kicker:
Sources informed ABC Information that prosecutors consider a choice about whether or not or to not carry prices in opposition to Gaetz might come as early as July. Sources stated the probe into the congressman has ramped up in latest weeks. Investigators have began interviewing extra girls who have been allegedly launched to Gaetz via Greenberg, who final month pleaded responsible to intercourse trafficking a 17-year-old woman — who later went on to work in pornography — and introducing her to different “grownup males.”
Does Gaetz qualify as an “grownup man”? I assume technically he does.
The ABC story as a complete is a deep dive into the seamy underbelly of Florida’s frat-boy political scene. Greenberg is outwardly an actual piece of labor, and Gaetz seems to have been marching in lockstep along with his BFF. It’s so unhealthy, Gaetz thought touring the country with Marjorie Taylor Greene can be the distraction he must throw the media off his scent. Undecided why he’s doing that, until he thinks faking psychological sickness will someway get him a lighter sentence.
In fact, there’s no assure Gaetz goes inside. I’ve seen loads of scurrilous white males skate by on their privilege. But it surely certain doesn’t look good for him nowadays. And that’s motive sufficient to be inspired. For now, anyway.
