that Matt Gaetz would get caught going something sleazy?
Even the most pro-Trump figures of the Republican Party have, in the past, been hesitant about associating themselves with Matt Gaetz. Considering that these are many of the same people who believe that the presidential election was stolen from Trump, that should tell you just how lowly regarded Matt Gaetz is.
Before the allegations came out in the New York Times, Gaetz just happened to mention that he was thinking of resigning his seat so he could get a job as a commentator with Newsmax. Gaetz apparently thought this would keep everyone from assuming that he was retiring because he was being investigated for a federal crime. Matt Gaetz is not only sleazy but stupid.
I have my doubts that Gaetz will actually retire, though. He enjoy playing the martyr and the victim. It’s seem more likely he’ll end up being expelled from the House, Jim Traficant-style.
Gaetz’s district, by the way, is so red that it even elected Matt Gaetz three times. So, don’t believe the hype when the media starts telling you that it might flip blue during a special election.
