Posted this in The Pile thread, but it bears repeating:
Remember when there was such a thing as "values voters" that would have been appalled by this sort of thing?
Turned out "values" was just code for plain old grandpa-at-thanksgiving brand racism.
Wait a second.
QAnon tried to warn us about Pizzagate.
Matt Pizza Gaetz
Matt Gaetz's victim was 17.
Guess which letter of the alphabet is also 17?
Fucked up if true
The only surprising thing here is that it involves a girl.
If you haven't read the full story, be sure to do it. Our boy has been keeping some very bad company. He also may find that his plan to follow in Joe Scarborough's footsteps from Florida's 1st Congressional District (where I grew up) and parlay that into a lucrative media career may not happen. Funny that the Mann Act, which prosecutors used to send Chuck Berry up the river, may trip up Gaetz as well. Although, I'm wondering if that might be the least of his worries.
ETA: When Tucker Carlson doesn't buy your story, you need to come up with a new one.
Shouldn’t the title be: May Gaetz Under Investigation for Alleged Underage Sex.
No, because there is an open question as to whether he is in fact being investigated in his own right. To believe his account, he is not the target of an investigation. So the proper way would be as stated: there is an allegation that he is being investigated for underaged sex.
If it were confirmed that there was an investigation and that the investigation was into he had been having underaged sex, then the formulation "Matt Gaetz under investigation for alleged underaged sex" would be better.
Up until last summer I owned property in his district (see me joking about changing my voter registration for the election).
I still got lots of family and friends down there.
Fuck that D-Bag.
Escambia County deserves better (but unfortunately won’t get it. ).
One of things where you dont want it to be true because there’s a minor involved but you also really really want it to be true because Matt Gaetz
Fuck, this escalated quickly - I read the "Gaetz might resign and go to work for Newsmax" story lying in bed last night and see this stuff (including the bizarre Tucker Carlson interview - "a 17-year old WOMAN!") this morning.
And what is it with these young Trumpista types and the coke-before-TV thing?!
Right, but you should never believe Matt Gaetz's account.
Hell, even Tucker Carlson seemed incredulous.
Yep, that's very much a crime: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mann_Act
If he were still alive you could ask Chuck Berry.
Oh no. Not a good look.
True, but some of the comments in that Tweet thread are odd. Stuff like, "it's creepy for a thirty something year old man to be hanging around a high school". Well, he's a Congressperson who was there to give a talk and answer questions (check the date, the news media supports this), and as far as I can remember that has ALWAYS been considered normal and even went on when I was in high school a billion years ago.
Taking a selfie with some younger ladies to post on Twitter, well, that's questionable, as we all agree.
Jim Jordan has come out in support of Gaetz, because Gaetz needed the optics of support from a guy who ignored systematic sexual abuse for years.
I will have the vagitarian pedo special to go
Waitress: 1 epstein special and give it wings.
Gaetz probably likes to eat at Rasins.
where were girls like that when I was in high school? Oh that's right - mocking, shunning and degrading me for four years of hell.
Matthew McConaughey in Dazed and Confused is probably the reference to go with here.
Yeah, I can absolutely see why he'd be at a high school (really ought to be a requirement for all politicians so they can educate people on how government works) but the all-girl selfie? Not a good look, even if he's not a pedophile (technically an ephebophile, given that he seems interested in teenagers) since you'd expect there to be a number of folks wanting to have their picture taken with him (you know, what with it being a way to boost their social media presence and all).
"15'll get you twenty, but that's all right...rockin' and a rolling on a Livingston Saturday night!" Jimmy Buffett.
Exactly. Nothing specifically wrong with it per se and in its own context, but it really looks bad especially when one is trying NOT to look like a perv years later and this stuff then comes to the public eye.
