Matt’s out on the house floor showing nudes and videos to other members of congress

And they just shrug their shoulders??

Those members should be reprimanded too, if not expelled (don’t care which party they belong to).

Katie Hill had to resign over her personal life

I get that but at the same time I think it’s a little more complicated than just blowing the whistle. I could see where the reps he showed just rolled their eyes and said “not touching that one” and because of how Gaetz acts not wanting to have their names attached to any scandals. Doesn’t necessarily make it right but I kind of get it.

Under the new rules of Crazytown, I may have been Speaker, but I didn’t hold all the power. By 2013 the chaos caucus in the House had built up their own power base thanks to fawning right-wing media and outrage-driven fundraising cash. And now they had a new head lunatic leading the way, who wasn’t even a House member. There is nothing more dangerous than a reckless asshole who thinks he is smarter than everyone else. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Senator Ted Cruz.

Matty is just a member of the boys club.


There have been reports about sexual harassment in Congress, including on the floor of both the House and Senate. So why would they call out Gaetz for that?

So gross

Insider.com


A New York Times report about a Justice Department investigation into GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida includes an allegation that the lawmaker took the drug ecstasy before sexual encounters.

The Times report, published Thursday, described several unnamed sources as saying Gaetz had paid women for sex. Two sources told The Times that some of the people involved, including Gaetz, had used ecstasy beforehand.

Gaetz has denied ever paying for sex and has said that all the allegations against him are false.

During his time in Florida's Legislature, Gaetz advocated requiring recipients of public assistance to pass a drug test.


"I strongly support drug-testing for welfare recipients," Gaetz said in a tweet in March 2011, when he was in Florida's House of Representatives. "Applying for welfare is voluntary, if you don't want to get tested don't apply."


In May 2011, Florida's Legislature passed a bill to require state welfare applicants to undergo and pass a drug test to be eligible to receive benefits. Gaetz supported the bill, which was signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott.

In October 2011, a federal judge blocked the bill, and it was eventually ruled unconstitutional because it violated the ban on unreasonable searches and seizures. After appeals, the law was dismissed.

Looks like somebody rammed one of the barriers on Constitution Ave. and the person may or may not have been shot by Capitol Police when doing so.

Thus explains the three Metro PD cars doing their best Daytona 500 impersonation past my house a half hour or so ago.

Don't want to make any assumptions, but this is what happens when the guy who incites a riot gets away with it.

The second officer is in critical condition. The attacker was reportedly a 25 year old man.

How traumatic for the Capitol police and anyone there today. Especially those who were also there on Jan 6th.
