Florida Republicans Representative Matt Gaetz has found himself in a whole world of trouble over the past week or so, with reports about his possible career change quickly turning into bombshell revelations about his deviance.
Several reports have broken now, lodging some serious allegations against the GOP House Representative, including but not limited to a fake ID scam, potential sex trafficking, revenge porn, and statutory rape — with specific allegations of a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old who he may have paid to travel across state lines with him in violation of sex-trafficking laws, showing nude photos of women he’d had relations with to his colleagues, paying women for sexual acts, and being closely involved with a former colleague who is currently in jail facing similar charges.
Frankly, Gaetz is screwed, and not in the way he wants to be.
As I’m sure you’ve been able to tell over the past few days, the GOP congressman doesn’t have a whole lot of colleagues coming to bat for him. In fact, even ex-President Donald Trump was resoundingly quiet on the matter and only spoke up when reports started to swirl claiming that Gaetz had asked him for a “blanket pardon.” Trump denied these claims and offered up a milquetoast defense of the congressman if I’ve ever seen one.
To say the least, things are bad for the guy, and as reports continue to break, they keep getting worse — we knew it was only a matter of time before MadDog PAC got involved.
MadDog is known for their billboards across the county, shining shame on GOPers who can’t get their act together. This is far from the first time Gaetz has found himself the subject of one of their brutal billboards. However, this is probably the worst, for him anyway.
In Okaloosa County, Florida, you will find a billboard featuring Gaetz’s pouty face and the words, “Matt Gaetz wants to ‘date’ your child.”
Take a look:

That’s about as brutal as they come, folks.
The fact of the matter is, it’s time these people were held accountable for what they’ve done and continue to do. And if that means shaming them with billboards, then I say bring it on.
