Not sure why we have “ethics” standards in Congress. His douchebro partner in slime is in prison for precisely the same trafficking/sex crimes as his boner-buddy, Gaetz engaged in. The same parties, the same underage girls, the same Venmo payments. But Gaetz is a congressman with connections. No charges filed. YEARS of ethics committees looking at the same evidence that convicted his pal. If Trump believes officers of the U.S. government should be entitled to immunity, some might say they already are.

I read that in relation to Matt Gaetz, and my balls didn't shrivel up. They threw all their things in a bindle and got the fuck out of Dodge.

A bindle!

My wife and I love the word “bindle” for some reason. We always packed cans of baked beans or Beanie Weenie when we went camping, which we affectionately called “bindle beans.” In the movie Of Mice and Men, as they rest along the riverbank for the night, Lenny asks George “ain’t we gonna get no supper?” George replies, “sure we are, I got 3 cans of beans in my bindle.” But sadly they had no ketchup for their beans.

Ta, Robyn. The last thing I ever want to consider is intimacy with the likes of Gaetz. Let's see whether or not Daddy's money can effect a rescue.

There’s a reason a young man, a sitting congressman even, needs to pay for sex. Gaetz isn’t gonna find many enthusiastic takers unless they are getting paid for that considerable sacrifice. Yuck.

It did last time, they got him married off and got a highly-paid lawyer, and the case disappeared. And his underage sister-in-law said he kept trying to get her to 'date' all these older men friends and colleges of his.

"Photos" ? Maybe some dick pics need to be entered into the house congressional record.

Look, my moral compass has plenty of space on the dial for idea that sex is just sex and if you can make a buck...?

I'm more perplexed by the women who may have slept with this man FOR FREE. That is a thing I will not understand.

Regardless, they will not expel him. They learned their lesson with Santos, even though Goatse's seat is safely Republican.

You are, of course, correct.

At least they’re going to have embrace the slime.

Yes, but he's a role model for every male MAGAt and Trumpetoon in America.

Pretty much...I read somewhere that the late and unlamented Eliot Rodger has big fans on the internet.

Figures.

"...While prosecutors decided to just let this one go a while back, the House Ethics Committee has recently reopened its own probe (ew, probe) into Gaetz’s sex-trafficking activities and has been in touch with several witnesses including this woman’s attorney as well as the 17-year-old that he and Greenberg allegedly paid for sex."

One can only hope that the Ethics Committee publishes it findings, which might lead "prosecutors" to discover a newfound interest in charging ( and convicting ) Gaetz. And face it, no matter hated Gaetz is by the other Republicans in the House, there's no way they will vote to expel him. He needs to go to jail ( altho' I'm sure there'll be lotsa of right wing pundits who will claim it's okay for a convicted felon to vote in the House )

No doubt all the ones he hooked up with paid escorts will defend him. Remember when he threatened Tucker that one time?

Honestly, DOJ has a lot to answer for as to why they dropped this case. I know Greenberg is a shitty witness but there seems to be a lot more evidence against Gaetz than just his former wingman’s word.

Supposedly there were so many pictures and videos he got two extensions.

Because Garland is a Republican. His job is to protect Republicans not prosecute.
