Another Matt Gaetz Associate Is Staring Down the Barrel of An Indictment
The scandal surrounding Rep. Matt Gaetz (Q-Florida) just grows by the day. Gaetz continues to fight off the seemingly endless new stories breaking about the investigation into his alleged involvement in a sex trafficking ring that involved teenage girls while also shooting down rumors he begged the former guy for a pardon in the waning days of the Trump Administration. And just one day after he was announced as a speaker at the “Insurrection Reunion” this weekend at Trump’s Doral property, reports are emerging that a third man, with connections to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, has emerged as the “third Florida Republican” who was involved with Gaetz and his partner Joel Greenberg.
Peter Schorsch, the publisher of FloridaPolitics.com, tweeted that multiple sources close to Halsey Beshears, the former Secretary of the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) under DeSantis, is also connected to the same sex trafficking ring as Gaetz and Greenberg. Beshears had a chequered past while in the position, getting himself into trouble for trying to push local mayors off of the board that runs the Orlando International Airport and other scandals that made him an unpopular figure in local political circles.
Beshears resigned from the DBPR in January 2021 citing “personal health reasons,” according to an official press release. But Schorsch suggests in his Twitter thread that while Beshears did indeed contract the Coronavirus, it’s most likely the impending legal issues he expected to face that caused him to abruptly leave his position.
Beshears resigned in January citing health reasons, which included contracting the coronavirus.
But, increasingly, sources familiar with his exit process believe that his legal troubles factored in the decision. https://t.co/fi5Oo4uOjD

Meanwhile, Gaetz has been tweeting non-stop in an attempt to gain public sympathy, but that tactic backfires every time he shares more information he shouldn’t be sharing.

The Former Guy just released statement:
"Congressman Matt Gaetz has never asked me for a pardon. It must also be remembered that he has totally denied the accusations against him."
In other words, @mattgaetz begged him for a pardon and everybody knows the accusations are true.

Even Gaetz sounds like he doesn’t believe himself.
Gaetz’s explanation for being on camera looking at ID’s in Greenberg’s office: “I lost my ID, so I drove halfway across the state to my friend’s closed office on a weekend to ask him to replace it. But then I found my ID so actually there’s no proof it was ever gone.” pic.twitter.com/vG58Wz7QLO
