Gaetz showed lawmakers nude photos of women he claimed to have slept with: report


Quote:
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) showed photos of nude women who he claimed he had sex with to other lawmakers, multiple sources told CNN.

Two sources, who claim they were shown the material directly, said that the photos were "a point of pride" for Gaetz.

The sources also told the news outlet that Gaetz, 38, showed them the photos while conducting business on the House floor, adding that the Florida lawmaker displayed the images on his phone and talked about having sex with the women.

What if the right-wing media wins?




Quote:

It was a sweltering July afternoon in the swamp, and a small group of well-dressed, conservative college students from across the country—the next generation of Megyn Kellys, George Wills, and Tucker Carlsons—was filing into an auditorium at the Heritage Foundation’s Washington, DC, headquarters. They had come to study at the feet of Breitbart News Washington editor Matt Boyle, a zealous prophet of the new right-wing media. Boyle’s sermon was not about how to break into the mainstream media and steer the national news agenda toward conservative aims—it was about the end days of journalism itself. And he was not about to skimp on the fire and brimstone.

barely a peep in the media about Gaetz associate who is charged with so many things. again just another typical right winger elected official barely getting a headline over such serious things. If it was an elected official liberal, it would be all over the media front page but this right-wing hero Greenberg barely a peep for being a pedophile.

Matt Gaetz associate Joel Greenberg has been accused of everything from acting as a vigilante police officer to trying to hack rival politicians


Quote:
Embattled former Florida tax collector Joel Greenberg had a troubled tenure in office, the NYT reports.
Before being charged with federal crimes, Greenberg was accused of abusing his office and wasting taxpayer funds.
Greenberg, an associate of Rep. Matt Gaetz, is now a key player in the investigation against Gaetz.
See more stories on Insider's business page.
Embattled former Seminole County, Florida, tax collector Joel Greenberg, now a major player in the federal probe against Rep. Matt Gaetz, had a long history of being accused of official misconduct, including having complaints filed accusing him of acting as a vigilante police officer and abusing taxpayer funds.


A new examination of Greenberg's tenure by The New York Times on Sunday uncovered numerous warning signs about Greenberg's conduct in office. After a somewhat troubled youth, Greenberg was elected to the position of tax collector in the county in 2016, defeating the longtime incumbent in a primary challenge.

The Times said that Greenberg soon found himself "bored" in his position and sought ways to use it to his personal advantage, a tendency that would lead to his downfall and formal resignation in 2020.

In a complaint filed with the county's sheriff's office and reported by The Times, a woman said that in 2017 Greenberg pulled her over with his tax collector's badge around his neck and yelled at her for apparently cutting him off, saying she drove "like a bat out of hell."

Greenberg was also accused of spending over $1 million in taxpayer funds for gear including weapons and a drone, creating "no-show jobs" for family and members of his wedding party, and of trying to solicit help to hack computers belonging to member of the county commission who had criticized him.

One lawyer who represented one of Greenberg's former employees told The Times: "It's like the Tiger King got elected tax collector."

Greenberg was also accused of stalking Brian Beute, a rival Democratic candidate for tax collector and local music teacher who had advocated against a real estate development supported by Greenberg.

Greenberg's actions, according to the indictment against him, included sending a fake anonymous letter to the school claiming Beute had an inappropriate relationship with a student (and making a Facebook account to perpetuate the same false claims) and creating a fake Twitter account posing as Beutler that posted white supremacist and pro-segregationist content.

Greenberg was first criminally charged with stalking Beute and unlawfully using his identity by federal prosecutors in June 2020.

He now faces over 30 federal charges ranging from sex trafficking of a child, aggravated identity theft, creating fake IDs, wire fraud, illegal monetary transfers, and conspiracy to bribe a public official to defraud the Small Business Administration for COVID-19 relief funds, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The Sentinel reports that Greenberg is expected to strike a plea deal to plead guilty to some of the charges by mid-May. Greenberg faces 10 years to life in prison on the sex trafficking charge alone.

During his tumultuous tenure as tax collector, Greenberg became friends with Gaetz, and was brought into the fray of Republican politics in the state. He even spoke at a rally for former President Donald Trump in 2016.

Gaetz is under federal investigation for possible trafficking of a minor across state lines. Authorities are also examining whether Gaetz and Greenberg paid women for sex. Gaetz has denied the accusations and has not yet been charged with a crime.

Insider's Sonam Sheth recently reported that the extent of Greenberg's current legal woes could up the pressure on him to cooperate against others involved in the charges against him, and potentially cause serious trouble for Gaetz.

A longtime New York Post reporter said she has resigned after being “ordered” to write a false story that claimed undocumented minors were being welcomed to the United States with copies of a children’s book written by Vice President Harris.

“The Kamala Harris story — an incorrect story I was ordered to write and which I failed to push back hard enough against — was my breaking point,” Laura Italiano tweeted Tuesday afternoon, several hours after her viral article about the books had been deleted from the Post’s website and replaced with corrected versions.

Italiano, who has written for the Post since the 1990s, according to news archives, could not be immediately reached for comment.

Since the Post published the story on its front page Saturday, the conservative mediascape has been in an uproar over the supposed distribution of Harris’s 2019 book, “Superheroes Are Everywhere,” at migrant shelters. A slew of prominent Republicans expressed outrage over the possibility that taxpayers were funding the program. Even the White House press secretary was grilled about it.

Oh poor FUX news people ya arn't they still the owners of Fux own that Post rag. The Murdoch's just hate americans... you know they paid and kept a known rapist running one of their networks.. No difference but bet she was not paid the 10s of millions to keep her a lying...

Sounds like another David Brock who started media matters because he too realized his millions he was being paid to lie about Anita Hill, the clintons was eating his soul alive too.

Time for Harris to hire a lawyer to sue that trash paper and the Murdoch's. again we have it all right in the statement to show there was malice and hatred to damage her and the american way.

Number of unaccompanied migrants drops—along with border media coverage


Quote:
Since the middle of March, weekday cable news segments on immigration have plummeted. And so has the number of unaccompanied migrants held by U.S. Border Patrol.
