FALLOUT over admissions in a leaked letter penned by Representation Matt Gaetz’s “wingman” Joel Greenberg that they paid a seventeen-year-old girl for sex has been unforgiving.
The stunning revelations that were brought to light on Thursday evening in a Daily Beast report,has former Seminole County’s tax collector Greenberg and fellow Florida reveler to the pugilistic congressman Gaetz, penning drafts to try to garner a pardon from former President Donald Trump (using Roger Stone as his proxy).
In them, Greenberg allegedly confides that he and Gaetz served as sugar daddies to many girls for “sexual activities” — but thought the minor in question was 19-years-old.
“On more than one occasion, this individual was involved in sexual activities with several of the other girls, the congressman from Florida’s 1st Congressional District and myself.
“From time to time, gas money or gifts, rent or partial tuition payments were made to several of these girls, including the individual who was not yet 18", according to a snippet of the letter in the report by the Daily Beast.
Gaetz is currently under investigation by the Department of Justice over alleged sexual misconduct and claims he broke sex trafficking laws.
The Florida congressman has not been formally charged and repeatedly denied the accusations while he is facing an inquiry launched by the House Ethics Committee to determine the veracity of other claims against him.
Meanwhile, the incarcerated Greenberg is reportedly cooperating with investigators wrote in one of the handwritten drafts that he “called the congressman and warned him to stay clear of this person and informed him she was underage,” the letter, quoted by the Daily Beast, reads.
The backchanneling between Stone and Greenberg that was detailed by The Daily Beast also airs Gaetz’s involvement in the cohorts' alleged sex activities to coax Trump to pardon him.
The commutated Stone was also dangled a handsome sum if he could convince the 45th president to help him dodge prison, according to the report.
“Today is the day,” Stone allegedly wrote in a Jan. 13, 2021 message, reported by the publication.
“We will know by the end of the day…I hope you are prepared to wire me $250,000 because I am feeling confident.”
Since the damning report published, social media folks have been less than kind.
"Matt Gaetz reading his 'wingman’' confession letter,” read television writer Craig Thomas's tweet, captioning a photo of Gaetz in a gas mask from last year when Congress was voting to vote on a bill to deliver financial aid to the Covid-19-stricken country.
"If only we’d known Matt Gaetz, Roger Stone and Joel Greenberg were associated…” posted a tweet by @Claude Taylor, who identifies himself as a former low-level White House staffer during the Clinton administration.
Another tweet compared Gaetz's legal woes to the mobster flick “Goodfellas” where the main character, Henry Hill, is inebriated and paranoid about a law enforcement chopper in the sky.
An account belonging to @padresj takes a potshot at the lawmaker with a haymaker of his own:"QAnon: "In a pizza parlor basement, with blood-drinking Democrats!" Gaetz: "Naw… In Venmo, with a Florida tax collector."
A fellow pizzagate aficionado, @MichaelSalamone also poured on the QAnon comparisons.
"I actually don't mind a "Pizza-Gate? More like Pizza-Gaetz, amiright?" or twelve in my timeline.
