Gaetz Ex-Girlfriend Talks to Federal Grand Jury

The ex-girlfiend of Florida Man and well-known congressional sleazebag Matt Gaetz (R, FL-1) testified to a federal grand jury investigating him on underage sex-trafficking and other charges. The young woman has been in talks for months with prosecutors about an immunity deal, NBC reports, hoping to avoid prosecution for obstruction of justice in return for testifying as to whether Gaetz paid a 17-year-old female for sex and violated a federal law prohibiting people for paying for prostitutes overseas. This testimony is seen as a sign that the grand jury is moving closer to indicting Trump idolator Gaetz.

Shocker: Matt Gaetz Marries Adult Woman

Shocker: Matt Gaetz Marries Adult Woman
Florida Man and well-known congressional sleazebag Matt Gaetz (R, FL-1) took a break from dodging a Justice Department inquiry into underage sex trafficking and traveling across state lines with a married woman to wed 26-year-old Ginger Luckey, merely 13 years his junior, in California. The couple met last year at Mar-a-Lago, of course. The bride markets preservatives you spray on fruits and veggies, and the goateed Gaetz brother-in-law founded a virtual reality company. As to the rest of family, his new sister-in-law called Mr. Gaetz a weird and creepy pedophile.

Congressman Gaetz wanted an Elvis imitator to officiate, but settled for former Rand Paul staffer and Trump fundraiser Sergio Gor, who has the power to marry people because he’s a Libertarian minister or something. It was a small ceremony on Catalina Island. In lieu of gifts, send weird conspiracy theories via Twitter, if you’re not banned.
