    He and his buddy were going on escort sites. It may be that one of the escorts was a mature looking 17 year old. Whatever, this is another spoiled entitled rich boy who buys whatever he wants to buy.

    From NYtimes.com "One of the sites the men met women through was called Seeking Arrangement, which describes itself as a place where wealthy people find attractive companions and pamper them “with fine dinners, exotic trips and allowances.” The site’s founder has said it has 20 million members worldwide. The F.B.I. mentioned the website in a conversation with at least one potential witness, according to a person familiar with the conversation."

    No charges have been brought against Mr. Gaetz, and the extent of his criminal exposure is unclear. Mr. Gaetz’s office issued a statement on Thursday night in a response to a request for comment.
    “Matt Gaetz has never paid for sex,” the statement said. “Matt Gaetz refutes all the disgusting allegations completely. Matt Gaetz has never ever been on any such websites whatsoever. Matt Gaetz cherishes the relationships in his past and looks forward to marrying the love of his life.”

    He may find that love in prison.

    ANY 38 year old man that is with a seventeen year old beyond like mentorship or just a simple friendship is a fucked up dude. I've been friends with teenagers before. But the last time I fucked a teenager was when I was a teenager.

    BTW, now they're talking about MULTIPLE Women, not just one. And that other Republicans wouldn't go to events Gaetz went to for fear of being pictured with him in light of the inevitable scandal that would come out of this. This thing just gets worse and worse. How in the fuck can this guy be that stupid.

    No. Gaetz's story is that someone named McGee , a former DOJ official, told him and his father that $25 million would make the allegations go away. Both Gaetz and his father say that they cooperated with the FBI and that his father wore a wire and recorded conversations with McGee and others. When asked about these and other claims by Gaetz the FBI declined comment. McGee also supposedly wanted Gaetz's help to free someone named Levinson, an American charged with spying by Iran who has been declared legally dead. Trump's State Dept. told the Levinson family that he was dead last March. McGee has represented the Levinson family before.

    Why did Elliot Spitzer use wire transfers to pay for his escorts ? I think we all know that sex can make people behave in irrational ways and do foolish things.

    The latest is that some REPUBLICAN Congressmen are claiming that Gaetz showed them photos of naked women on his phone that he claimed to have had sex with . Who knows ? Wait and see , wait and see.

    Well, Jerry Springer, when he was the mayor of Cincinnati, paid with a personal check at a Brothel (I had no idea Brothels took checks). That's a pretty stupid thing to do. Yeah, people do dumb stuff for sex, but if you do you'd better be prepared for the consequences. Just "I did something dumb" isn't enough.

    Now, look, have I ever hit up an escort? Yup. Haven't in a long time, but yeah. But never a kid.

    I’ve been trying to be detached from this crazy shit going on in the world, but this one hit home. I’ve almost grown numb to the insanity of people in power being so evil and corrupt. As well as my fellow citizens being bat shit crazy themselves.

    For sexual abusers, sex is about power and control rather than about sexual pleasure.

    I hope the young lady gets justice and the help she needs.

    Everyday it’s something on the news. I kinda wonder if this isn’t like the story of the frog boiling to death because it jumps into warm water and slowly the heat is turned up and the frog doesn’t realize it’s boiling to death. I feel guilty for being so detached, but I have to save my sanity.

    My Daughter is a fifteen year old girl, and it would seem that she knows the entire United States. I have like FOUR FRIENDS, but Kaytlyn seems to know everybody and they're all trucking into this house pretty often. I try to be cool with them, most of them anyway. She's brought home a few that I was a little iffy about. But all in all, they were just normal girls. Kaytlyn's at the stage of her life that she's going to be dating soon, and I'm not sure how I'm going to deal with that. She's gone on a few dates before and she's probably kissed a boy or maybe two. I understand that this is natural for her. Doesn't make me like it. But it is OK, she needs to find her own way.

    But that's one of the reasons why this story gets me so badly. I have a Daughter literally two years younger and if someone trafficked her I would probably kill them. Most likely.

    Now they're saying Gaetz asked for a preemptive pardon from Trump for himself and a bunch of other allies in the last month or two of Trump's presidency. Now why would he have to do that I wonder. This is Slimy. I wonder about the other allies, were they doing it too?

    Trump categorically denied that Gaetz ever asked him for a pardon.

    The NYT is hardly a paragon of virtue and integrity. Not when their STATED editorial and reporting policy is to support progressives and their causes and to bash conservatives at every opportunity.

    Whether you like it or not, it's a good source. And I'm seeing it elsewhere as well. When multiple media outlets are saying the same thing...

    A source of what ? Democrat talking points ? Biased coverage ? Factually delinquent and slanted articles ? Socialist and statist editorials ?

    How do you know it's biased? How do you know it's socialist. This is beginning to be pointless. That is the talking point of the far right. Everything they don't like they call "Socialist." It's like they don't even understand what Socialism is!

    All right, lets just agree to disagree. I'm not interested in getting in trouble again, OR getting Genoveve or Arialbrand on me again.

    So we disagree, and that's that.

    Dude I am a socialist, trust me the NYT is not socialist. I can cite 4 articles I read today that were definitely filled with neoliberal ideas and dance around even acknowledging a socialist position. And have these reporters been proved wrong about anything...? They are good reporters with solid sources even if you or I don’t agree with them.

    Oh please. The Times ended up with plenty of egg on its face . Especially under its current editor, Dean Baquet. The whole Trump - Russia Collusion farce ; the failure to cover the Hunter Biden Messes ( please note the plural ) , Paul Krugman ( no economist is so consistently WRONG ! ) etc. etc. yada , yada. The Times has publicly stated which side it is on ; what their mission is and it is NOT to impartially report facts. Twer it only true. They have openly abandoned the old ethics of Abe Rosenthal and Punch Sulzberger to advance their favored political agenda. They have explicitly said so. And they doubled down after Trump was elected.
