Quote :
"Prosecutors said in a grand jury indictment that Greenberg, as tax collector, took surrendered drivers licenses before they were shredded by office staff and created new IDs with his photograph but with the personal information of residents.

When federal agents first arrested Greenberg in the early morning of June 23 at his home in the gated Heathrow community, they said they found on the front seat of Greenberg's SUV, which belonged to the Tax Collector's Office, a backpack holding several fake IDs, according to court records. Agents also found materials used to create fake IDs at Greenberg's office at the Tax Collector's administrative office in Lake Mary."


I'm confused by why this guy would need these fake IDs.

"I believe that there are people at the Department of Justice who are trying to criminalize my sexual conduct, you know, when I was a single guy,” Gaetz told Axios.

“I have definitely, in my single days, provided for women I’ve dated,” Gaetz said. “You know, I’ve paid for flights, for hotel rooms. I’ve been, you know, generous as a partner. I think someone is trying to make that look criminal when it is not."


I'm just a nice guy!

I'd consider running once he's gone, but I have zero chance in a FL-1 GOP primary, or as a (D) in a FL-1 general election.

^^ That's the problem, though...I wouldn't do it if I couldn't stay true to my beliefs, and there is just no way in hell that FL-1 is going to nominate someone who is relatively centrist, vehemently anti-MAGA, and registered Democrat (and for that matter, registered Libertarian for years before that) to be the GOP nominee for Congress.

I met with Congressman Jeff Miller for prob 45 minutes once back in 2014, pre-Gaetz. I ultimately determined, though, that there's just no place for me politically in FL-1.

This past weekend, my next door neighbor, who's in her eighties, told my wife that, even though she doesn't have much money, she continues to give what she has to President Trump, because she believes that he is going to solve all of our problems.

^Yep fucking cults of personality. So many of my conservative family members were all in for Trump, but thank God they at least weren't the in your face, MAGA hat, Trump yard signs and bumper stickers followers. They were full GQP so they largely shut up when he lost and did not buy the whole "election fraud" story that was being pushed by OAN/Newsmax/Trump. They know not to talk politics to me because I live in "libtard central" Chapel Hill, NC and still think Jessie Helms was right when he said to put a fence around it rather than funding the NC Zoo.

Not a Republican but it honestly seems really dangerous. They have politicians at local state and federal levels believing it, they have fundraisers believing it, they have police officers and judges believing it, election officials. Seems untenable that we keep ignoring these ppl encircling our democracy.

Quote :
"House Republicans have removed Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming as conference chair in retaliation for her unyielding criticism of former President Donald Trump, his continued false claims of a stolen election, his role in the Jan. 6 riot and his future in the Republican Party.

"I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office," Cheney told reporters after her ouster, which was done by a voice vote.

^^^I used to be like in high school and early college days but more a libertarian-centrist (I voted for candidates on both sides as well as third party but often leaned right). Past tense now as I was definitely against Trump even in the early primaries as I have never liked him. I didn't vote for him and to see the party just become a bunch of sycophant dogs lapping at his asshole has been abhorrent. At the same time in recent years I had leaned more left-wing (HB2 and other shit at a state and national level really opened my eyes to how "small government/libertarian" the Republican party really is) and in the last election I don't believe I voted for a single Republican. Until they wash their hands of the stain of Trump and the ridiculous fascism/racism they have openly embraced I cannot in good conscience vote for them.

Good for you. I'm about the same. I can't understand why anyone thinks Trump loyalism is a smart idea. He's a total disaster. Sounds like something he'd say, but still true.

Hard to see how I could identify with this party again for a long long time, if ever. They've willfully and cowardly doubled down on the most insane elements. What's the endgame? There is a limited coalition willing to go along with this, although concerningly, it seems to be much larger than I could have ever imagined.

I'm okay with this, let him be the front-runner. He'd get beat again.

I'd be more concerned about a DeSantis, Cruz, or Hawley. They're smart enough to get the Trump supporters without being so incompetent and self-destructive to screw up their own chances.

There's a possibility Trump may not want to run again, although of course he'll enjoy all the attention pretending like he does and toying with the media, the party, and the nation up to the last minute. Mary Trump speculated after the election was finally called that he would never put himself in the position to lose like that again. Maybe it all depends on how successful his lying is over the next few years. So far, it seems alarmingly successful. Now he just needs a few major Biden screw-ups, and especially for white people to think their lives were better off under his reign.
