When it comes to the kinds of crimes the likes of which we’ll never forget, exploiting a minor for sexual gratification ranks right up there near the top of the list. This is why we wrinkled our nose so severely when we discussed Jeffrey Epstein and “PizzaGate”.
Now, Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz is navigating these murky waters, as he is currently under investigation, (but not under arrest), for some despicable crimes.
Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., is under investigation by the Department of Justice for a sexual relationship he allegedly had with a 17-year-old girl, the New York Times reported Tuesday.
The investigation was started in the final months of the Trump administration under then-Attorney General William Barr, the Times reported. The agency is looking into whether Gaetz, a close ally of the former president, violated federal sex trafficking laws by paying for the young woman to travel with him outside of Florida.
Gaetz has denied the allegations.
“The allegations against me are as searing as they are false,” Gaetz said. “I believe that there are people at the Department of Justice who are trying to criminalize my sexual conduct, you know when I was a single guy.”
“I have definitely, in my single days, provided for women I’ve dated,” Gaetz added. “You know, I’ve paid for flights, for hotel rooms. I’ve been, you know, generous as a partner. I think someone is trying to make that look criminal when it is not.”
It will be certainly interesting to see if this one case against Matt Gaetz gets more mainstream attention than the nine accusers who’ve now claimed that New York Government has sexually abused and harassed them in the past.
