Matt Gaetz Story Turns Stranger Still with Prostitution and Drug Use Now Involved

This Matt Gaetz story just keeps getting weirder.

There have been plenty of wild and absurd stories peddled around Washington DC in recent years, some of which are just too convoluted and complex to even believe.  Scandals are normal for The Beltway, sure, but they usually remain humming along in the background, known to exist but only spoken about when someone has made an enemy of someone else.

But not in the case of Congressman Matt Gaetz, who is in the middle of the sort of scandal that would put M. Night Shyamalan to shame.

It all began when the nation found out that Gaetz was under investigation for having a sexual relationship with an underage girl.  Then there was talk about possible sex trafficking charges.

Gaetz, looking to clear his name, appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show, but even the host seemed to think that the Congressman’s story about some wild extortion plot and an “ex-girlfriend” created more confusion than it erased.

Then came some side-bits about the search for a long-missing American military member.

And, as if there was no way that the story could get weirder, Gaetz is now said to be partaking in popular party drugs while he cavorts with prostitutes.

A New York Times report about a Justice Department investigation into GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida includes an allegation that the lawmaker took the drug ecstasy before sexual encounters.

The Times report, published Thursday, described several unnamed sources as saying Gaetz had paid women for sex. Two sources told The Times that some of the people involved, including Gaetz, had used ecstasy beforehand.

Gaetz has denied ever paying for sex and has said that all the allegations against him are false.

During his time in Florida’s Legislature, Gaetz advocated requiring recipients of public assistance to pass a drug test.

Gaetz has vehemently denied that these claims are true, and has lashed out at those perpetuating the tales as looking to sully his name.
