Matt Gaetz shells out major funds to run one-minute ad defending himself from scandal

Though news of the scandal was buried by recent events in America, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) was the subject of constant news coverage revolving around allegations that he paid teenage girls to travel with him across state lines and in some cases, for sexual favors.

According to the Washington Examiner, Gaetz has firmly denied the allegations and has refused calls for his resignation. His most recent moves indicate that he’s willing to double down on his defense, as the Florida lawmaker revealed on Twitter this week a new ad that aims to defend his name and, instead, flips the script on the mainstream media for attempting to smear him. 

Taking aim at CNN

The ad cuts in clips of a CNN director who was recently exposed by Project Veritas who reportedly admitted in the footage the network’s anti-Republican agenda, including targeting the Florida congressman during the peak of the news of his scandal.

“Big government, Big Tech, big business, big media, they’d all breathe a sigh of relief if I was no longer in the Congress fighting for you,” Gaetz says in the ad. “They lie about me because I tell the truth about them, and I’m not going to stop.”

The ad also included clips of Gaetz’s recent speech at a Republican event in which he passionately tells the audience that big tech and the mainstream media are constantly fighting to keep him down because he claims they’re scared of him.

As any politician worth his or her salt would do, Gaetz includes a call-to-action for donations in order to run the ad as much as possible.

What’s the latest on the scandal?

The 38-year-old politician has repeatedly denied that he was involved in any wrongdoing and has continued to blame the mainstream media and officials within the U.S. Department of Justice for orchestrating the story as a “hit job” aimed at damaging him or forcing him out of Congress.

As any political scandal is subject to, the media — especially left-leaning networks like CNN — dug in and reported additional stories such as one report that suggested Gaetz often showed his House colleagues pictures and videos of the young women he’d been with.

As is standard in these situations, a House Ethics Committee investigation was opened into possible allegations that the congressman “may have engaged in sexual misconduct and/or illicit drug use, shared inappropriate images or videos on the House floor, misused state identification records, converted campaign funds to personal use, and/or accepted a bribe, improper gratuity, or impermissible gift, in violation of House Rules, laws, or other standards of conduct.”

Even with the investigation and media attention, Gaetz has continued to carry on with normal business, even tweeting about the topics and debates of the day on a regular basis.

Only time will tell if Gaetz is telling the truth about the mainstream media and the DOJ’s alleged “hit job,” but even if he manages to do so, his name will likely be forever tainted by the yet-unsubstantiated rumors in the history books.

  1. The left doesn’t care about the truth or facts. All they do is destroy, destroy, destroy and their lemmings antifa, BLM, etc., are just like them.

  2. Congressman Gaetz must have been close to something the Democraps did to break the law or violate the Constitution. Their MO is to start a rumor and then the cable news talking heads are ordered by the DNC to run with it and make it as damaging as possible with their lies. Congressman Gaetz is innocent of ALL charges, rumors, and innuendo. The Democraps have done something AGAIN and he was too close to finding the truth about them. Just like the “Russian Dossier” about President Trump, all lies but it took 2 years to find out.

  5. We must ALL learn to research anyone we want to vote for an office that will regulate what we can/can not do. We need to find out where they went to school and what that school ACTUALLY stands for – liberal, conservative, pro-USA or ANTI USA – and too many of our Universities have professors/teachers that are so left leaning that they teach the next generation to be like them and continue the destruction, slowly, of the US. Please pay attention to the background – and not just recent – but longtime – of ANYONE you use your vote to direct our country.

  6. I know Matt Gaetz is innocent. Democrats are liars, crooked, corrupt, bought and paid for by China. They all have committed treason and should be in prison. Matt Gaetz keep up your good work.

  7. Everyone needs to write or call their Congress or Senate seat that represent their district. Tell them to speak up or you will put someone in their place that will. Remember you pay them
