Boebert Bestie Matt Gaetz To Bail From Congress?

  • 18 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

UPDATE: Or not, as the New York Times reports:

Representative Matt Gaetz, Republican of Florida and a close ally of former President Donald J. Trump, is being investigated by the Justice Department over whether he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old and paid for her to travel with him, according to three people briefed on the matter.

Investigators are examining whether Mr. Gaetz violated federal sex trafficking laws, the people said. A variety of federal statutes make it illegal to induce someone under 18 to travel over state lines to engage in sex in exchange for money or something of value. The Justice Department regularly prosecutes such cases, and offenders often receive severe sentences.

Somebody inform “QAnon,” their “pedo” may finally have been located.

—–

Reps. Matt Gaetz, Lauren Boebert (R).

That’s the rumor going around via Axios:

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) has privately told confidants he’s seriously considering not seeking re-election and possibly leaving Congress early for a job at Newsmax, three sources with direct knowledge of the talks tell Axios.

Why it matters: Gaetz is a provocative figure on the right who’s attracted attention by being a fierce defender of former President Trump. The Republican also represents a politically potent district on the Florida panhandle.

Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida, as readers know, struck up a fast friendship with freshman Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado on account of their very similar platform of low-information MAGA red meat boisterously shoveled in heaping quantities for consumption by an adoring social/conservative media audience. They also both have what can be best described as a strained relationship with reality.

Gaetz is the kind of politico for whom mouthpiece afforded by serving in Congress is very much an end unto itself, and especially serving in the minority party the actual day-to-day work of serving in Congress just isn’t very satisfying. It’s a bug we could easily see Boebert herself catching in the event 2022 starts to look inconvenient–either from a Republican primary, a Democratic challenger, or any number of other wrinkles that have cropped up in Boebert’s brief tumultuous time in the spotlight.

As for Rep. Gaetz, we wish his face made for radio all the best on television.

    1. This:

      Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz was literally the only person to vote against an anti-human trafficking bill

      Posted By Xander Peters on Fri, Dec 29, 2017 at 5:50 PM

      Following Gaetz's questionable no vote, real estate developer Cris Dosev — Gaetz's challenger in the 2018 Republican primary — raised his own doubts about the congressman's decision.

      "That Matt Gaetz could vote against a law to fight human trafficking and sex slave trade is beyond comprehension," Dosev says in a release. "What was he thinking? … Near unanimous support on this should be a clear indication that the American people will not tolerate human trafficking."

       

    2. Why would Representative Boebert be concerned about Representative Gaetz’s questionable sexual relationship with a minor? Wasn’t her future husband arrested for wagging his dick around in front of a bunch of minors in a bowling alley? Didn’t she marry him soon after?  It is SOP to her. God help their sons.  

      1. Wasn’t her future husband arrested for wagging his dick around in front of a bunch of minors in a bowling alley?

         

        Yup.  And she was one of said minors.

        1. The Boeberts were also dating when she was a 17 year old high school student. (He was 23). She married  Jayson right out of high school. Their oldest was born about 6 months after the wedding. 

          Not to be judgmental here- most people in my extended family were sexually active out of wedlock at least once, or dated someone of a different generation. That includes all the right-wing fundamentalists and Catholics.

          But Boebert is hypocritical if she’s proclaiming her fealty to “family values” while her personal history and allies contradict it.

          At any rate, she may be quite sympathetic to Gaetz’ predicament. 

    3. As seen on the internet, the Party of Lincoln is nowadays very much the Party of I Have No Goddamn Idea How My Dick Ended Up In That Teenager.

  1. Just one of the BeeGees. 

    Lauren Boebert, Ken Buck, Andy Biggs, Mo Brooks

    Louis Gohmert, Matt Getz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Paul Gosar 

    I'm sure there are more. 

  2. He Bobesi, great news:  We found your pedo in Government that your friend Q warned us about.

    Bad News:  He's your best buddy in Congress.  

  3. oF cOuRsE Roger Stone(d) would think Gaetz should be on the VP short-list for 2024! If these two clowns are the brain trust of the Trumplicans I think we have some optimism for 2024. Watch these videos at our own peril!
