    All in all, a lot more interesting than I wish it was.
    There's a lot of things they didn't tell me when I signed on with this outfit....

    I feel kinda like I did when it was the Stormy Daniels saga. The sordid, really seedy, grimy content of the stuff is only the vehicle to carry the issue that I mostly care about.

    Though in this case, where we're talking about what amounts to inducements to enter prostitution ... even before we get into the underage = statutory rape issue ... oy. There's been reporting in the past couple of days in which the journalist interviewed a dozen or so women who'd been involved in this stuff with Greenberg, and an assortment of other Florida Republican types. With allegations of using "massive" access to drugs (sometimes bullied into taking them) in addition to financial inducements to get the women to do a variety of sexual things - in groups and otherwise. With some women refusing and leaving the parties, some women breaking down into tears during the interviews, etc etc.

    I want to know which disgusting SOBs were involved in this stuff, right up the line. And if Gaetz cuts a deal in order to enable convictions of Governors, Senators, etc etc, so be it.

    Not so sure about that:

    https://www.fpa.org.uk/factsheets/law-on-sex
    “It is an offence for a person aged 18 or over to have any sexual activity with a person under the age of 18 if the older person holds a position of trust (for example a teacher or social worker) as such sexual activity is an abuse of the position of trust.”

    I rather think that these creeps were in a position of trust.

    If you trust Gaetz you deserve to get screwed.

    Details of Greenberg's expected plea deal are starting to leak. Quite a bit of cooperation required to shrink 33 felony counts down to merely 6.

    Should I be ashamed that I am enjoying this so much? I want to watch him fall.

    No.

    We've been saying that this time the ratfreakers will surely plummet to their political deaths for going on six years now, and each time they just ignore the accusations and move on to the next crime.

    I'm pretty sure I could live on schadenfreude and cheap beer for several years.

    Well, counting on the rich, deep, savor of the schadenfreude to carry the tune, you know.

    On Oct. 26, 2019, Gaetz attended the “Trump Defender Gala” fundraiser as the featured speaker at the Westgate Lake Resort in Orlando. Two witnesses present recalled friends reconvening at Gaetz’s hotel room for an after-party, where Zalonka prepared lines of cocaine on the bathroom counter. One of those witnesses distinctly remembers Zalonka pulling the drugs out of her makeup bag, rolling a bill of cash, and joining Gaetz in snorting the cocaine.

    Family values strikes again. Remember when the Reps use to claim to be the party of them? Now they're the party of sleaze sex.
