WATCH: ‘Tick Tock Matt Gaetz’ Banner Flies Over Courthouse With Joel Greenberg Plea Imminent
Matt Gaetz is planning a big campaign rally for Friday in Arizona, along with Marjorie Taylor Greene. However, not everyone thinks the Florida Congressman will be free to attend by then.
Gaetz’ friend and ally Joel Greenberg, who he supported for the office of Seminole County Florida Tax Collector, is pleading guilty to charges including sex trafficking a minor. According to WESH, he’s admitted to paying for sex, including with a minor, and providing drugs to said minor. He also admits to introducing the minor to other men, who he says also paid to have sex with her. The names of these other men have not been released publicly.
Now, as Matt Gaetz prepares his plans for next weekend, a plane flying over the courthouse where Greenberg’s plea is to be entered is carrying a banner that suggests those plans could be canceled.

“Tick Tock Matt Gaetz,” is printed in large letters flying above the courthouse, and the sentiment seems to be shared pretty widely.
Matt Gaetz’s former friend Joel Greenberg pleaded guilty this morning.

A PAC called Remove Ron — dedicated to opposing Ron DeSantis as Florida Governor, and supporting his opposition in the next election — says they’re responsible for the message.

While there have been no names publicly released from Joel Greenberg’s plea deal, Gaetz made public nearly two months ago that he was facing allegations, although he wrote them off as a mere blackmail attempt (though he never explained how the extortion was supposed to work if the claims were untrue). Since then, he has continued to deny, but has reportedly been consulting with attorneys, and others who know him have spilled on a long pattern of bad behavior.
