Updates on the New York Times’ story about sexual misconduct allegations against Rep. Matt Gaetz, which he denies and says are part of a blackmail attempt:
Former Democratic Rep. Katie Hill penned an op-ed calling on Gaetz to resign “if there is even a fraction of truth to these reports.” Ironically, the two had been friends in Congress, and Gaetz defended her when she was caught in a sex scandal that ended her career. The difference in this case is that Gaetz says the charges are false and refuses to resign.
One person alleged to be part of the extortion attempt all but admitted in an interview Monday that he did try to get Gaetz’s father to pay him $25 million but insists it wasn’t an extortion attempt. He must think he's awfully persuasive! Details at the link.
