At a minimum, Rep. Matt Gaetz should be thrown out of Congress.

OR charged with witness tampering and attempted obstruction of justice. There should be more outrage by the Democrats in Congress in both Houses. They should be all over the media tonight and through the week-end.

and a rail to ride him out of town on?

2. Lucky for Gaetz, IOKIYAR is officially the law of the land ...

So, nothing will happen.

Well, maybe an ethics violation ...

4. Nah, leave him in Congress, just prosecute and imprison him.

It's a better look for the GOP to have sitting House members in federal prison, rather than have those prisoners be ex-Congresspersons.

But if his sentence is over before the term is up, then sure, kick him out upon parole.

9. He certainly doesn't belong

anywhere near public decision-making or public resources. Maybe he could clean toilets at a motel or something.

I think I would risk getting kicked off of Wikipedia in order to do something like this.

11. I'm sure the outrage will build over the next few hours. He only posted the tweet....

....a few hours ago.

Other Congressmen are just beginning to react to it. He's not going to get off easy on this one.

13. My favorite pix of Gaetz-booking mug shot for DUI




Drunk driving arrest and speeding tickets

In 2008, Gaetz was arrested for a DUI as he was driving back from the Swamp, a nightclub on Okaloosa Island, Florida. While he was arrested and refused to take a breathalyzer test, "he didn't have his license suspended for a year when he refused the breath testóas Florida law dictates. And he didn't have that refusal used against him in a criminal proceeding." Charges against him were dismissed despite the fact that the police reported that "Gaetz fumbled for his license and registration, his eyes were watery and bloodshot, and he swayed and staggered when he got out of the car." Gaetz has cited the dropped charges as proof that he was innocent.[74]

Between 1999 and 2014, Gaetz received 16 speeding tickets in Florida.[75]

18. This is the third on this I have responded to.

All including post insinuating that Speaker Pelosi should do more.

What exactly? She canít kick him out without lots of republican votes. Same with Censure. The ethics committee decides who to investigate

Canít remove him from committee assignments. That up to his party.

So if you have a criticism of our speaker, please inform us of what she should do.
