Feds told that Gaetz, lobbyist discussed running sham candidate in state Senate race: report

Source: The Hill

Federal investigators were told that Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) discussed running a sham candidate in the 2020 state Senate race with a lobbyist, two people familiar with the matter told The New York Times.

The Times reported that the Florida Republican discussed the possibility of running a sham candidate with lobbyist Christ Dorworth to help Jason Brodeur, an associate of Gaetz's, win an open seat in the Florida state Senate.

A third-party candidate named Jestine Iannotti was on the ballot in that election, according to the Times. The candidate did not raise much money for her bid and did little campaigning, according to the paper.

Fliers sent to voters depicted her as a Democrat, though she had no party affiliation. One flier portrayed a Black woman and said "Jestine Iannotti will always be there for us."

1. Republicans find every way possible to cheat.

Itís all they have since their policies are harmful and have been rejected by all but the white supremacy and evangelical extremists.
