Seriously can someone explain to me how this isn't a story? How the hell does a 30 year old single dude with DUIs adopt a kid from Cuba and it not be suspicious?

Why would that be suspicious, by itself?

Not suggesting it is wrong, but want to state isn’t it normally a requirement that adopting father is free of crime etc? I feel like if illegal jumped through the hoops and paid all the fees etc, if they tried to become a citizen and had dui, they’d be denied.

But someone with same issue could get a kid? Idk i might be totally wrong

So many questions.

Florida Republicans are always chasing the “Cuban vote,” you’re telling me that Gaetz didn’t find a politically convenient time to bring up his adopted Cuban son until.........now?

Adoption isn't like going to the pet store and picking which one you want. There are loads of waiting periods, interviews, character screening, etc. A single man with potential drinking issues wouldn't be at the top of the list

First time DUI in Florida is a misdemeanor. I doubt he even needed to disclose it. If he did disclose it, I doubt they gave it much weight.

Nothing says "I love you" like announcing your son's existence as a gotcha to own the libs.

It is likely more than a father-son relationship, at least that's what the interwebs is suspecting.

Let’s keep the high ground a little bit here, less we want to be known for sending in freedom fighters into Floridian Pizza parlors to free locked up Cuban boys in a nonexistent basement.

Nothing says class like yelling at your underage rape victim for being underage.

I'm way too tired/lazy to actually Google/read anything about it, but if these are state charges, he's probably going to get away with it and not really face any meaningful consequences. If they're federal charges, he's less likely to weasel his way out of it, but I think a lot of people forget how many wealthy white men routinely get away with shit like this.

I watched a few minutes of the rally he an Marjorie Taylor Greene held at the retirement community in Florida on C-Span, and it was terrifying. Seriously. They and their "fans" are nuts.

^ not exactly an encouraging sign for Gaetz, but I actually still think he's going to skate/get away with it, either by taking a ridiculous plea deal that only rich white dudes would ever be able to get (inappropriate contact with a minor/community service/bs slap on the wrist), or by having the gaul to actually take it to trial and turning it into a slut-shaming spectacle, attacking the character/reputation of the underage females, resulting in a hung jury/mistrial/acquittal/whatever other "miscarriage of justice" can be made into a Netflix docuseries.


I really WANT to be wrong and for to him to have the book thrown at him, but I've seen guys just like him get away with so much worse that I just have to assume he's no different

He's gonna go full "Political persecution! They're smearing me because I'm the one who tells the truth and fights for you!"

Something will drop at some point and the GOP will instantly forget Gaetz even exists.

If we're lucky, we'll get a quote from McCarthy about how he hasn't read any Gaetz related news because he's too busy fighting Biden's Communist far-left Socialist agenda and isn't that the real threat to our children?
