Key player in federal probe into Gaetz set to plead guilty
[ Editor’s Note: Dear Mr. Gaetz, I hope you’re having fun out on your vanity tour with your cohort in craziness Ms. Margorie. You could have been using your time more wisely. I can’t remember anyone facing indictment shooting themselves in the head so many times by constantly doing interviews.
You must have a freedom death wish, a very crummy lawyer, or…I suspect no lawyer at all, as we probably would have heard of him quitting over your being unmanageable, or could you and Rudy by chance have the same attorney?
That your ‘wingman’ Joel is flipping with 33 charges against him did not take the Oracle of Delphi to help us predict. You both seem to have overdosed on vanity, but at least Greenberg did not continue making a public fool of himself.
I can’t wait until we see who else that Joel might be able to roll on, as the Feds often require a 100% data dump on everything you know about any criminal activity, or, if they catch you holding out they will void your plea agreement. Your attorney is supposed to go over this with you very, very carefully so he does not look like he flubbed.
Excuse me if I am dreaming that maybe you and Mr. Greenberg might be cellmates one day so you can continue being the bad boy Bobsey Twins in the joint. Maybe the blow up doll would have been a wiser choice, and cost less, even for the most expensive ones…Jim W. Dean ]

Joel Greenberg, the disgraced former Seminole County, Fla., tax collector who is facing more than two dozen counts including sex trafficking of a minor, has filed a notice in federal court that he’s changing his not guilty plea.
A key person in the investigation into Rep. Matt Gaetz who had previously signaled he is likely cooperating with prosecutors is set to plead guilty in federal court on Monday.
…The indictment against Greenberg says one girl he enticed to engage in a “commercial sex act” with was under 18. Gaetz has acknowledged sometimes paying for meals and hotel rooms for women he was “dating,” but has said that is commonplace.
At a hearing last month in Orlando, a prosecutor and an attorney for Greenberg told a federal judge that they expected a plea deal for Greenberg rather than a trial in his case. He faces a strong incentive to cooperate with prosecutors since the sex trafficking charge alone carries a mandatory 10-year prison term.
