A former staffer for Bill Clinton's administration, Clyde Taylor, started the PAC; he tweeted a photo of the billboard to Gaetz and asked how he liked it, the Northwest Florida Daily News reports. Gaetz lost his communications director, Luke Ball, last week.
Aronberg, who is not involved in the investigation, said Greenberg had every incentive to cooperate in the Gaetz probe "because he is facing a potential life sentence and at least a 10-year mandatory minimum for child sex trafficking related to the same 17-year-old girl in the Matt Gaetz investigation".
"The committee is aware of public allegations that Representative Matt Gaetz may have engaged in sexual misconduct and/or illicit drug use, shared inappropriate images or videos on the House floor, misused state identification records, converted campaign funds to personal use, and/or accepted a bribe, improper gratuity, or impermissible gift, in violation of House Rules, laws, or other standards of conduct", said Chairman Rep. Ted Deutsch, D-Fla., and ranking Republican Rep. Jackie Walorski of Indiana.
Gaetz himself is now being investigated by the Department of Justice under claims of sex trafficking a 17-year-old, which reportedly sprang out of the same indicted friend whom he paid. The allegations have had Gaetz looking for any allies to come to his defense, including former President Donald Trump.
Gaetz previously endorsed Greenberg and the two share political connections in Florida to figures like Roger Stone. It's a significant step in the case and signals that Greenberg could potentially serve as a witness in the Justice Department's investigation into Gaetz. The reports say he used the site Seeking Arrangement, a service that markets itself as a way for wealthy clients to find attractive individuals they want to pamper.
Matt Gaetz's associate Joel Greenberg will likely accept a plea deal, his lawyers said Thursday.
But there's also evidence the women were paid cash at points and had sex with Gaetz.
"Yes, marijuana entrepreneur and hand surgeon, which means he can cure your carpal tunnel and turn your thumb into a bong", Colbert cracked on Thursday's Late Show, later adding that Pirozzolo allegedly paid for the travel expenses, the accommodations, and female escorts.
