Matt Gaetz was just dealt a double whammy of no good, very bad news

It’s already shaping up to be another no good, very bad week for Matt Gaetz.The antigay congressman from Florida put on a big show last week when he picked a fight with Attorney General Merrick Garland during a congressional hearing. But his theatrics were clearly just a thinly veiled attempt at trying to distract from the far more serious issues going on in his personal life.The New York Times reports that the Department of Justice has added not one but two top prosecutors to its ongoing teen sex trafficking investigation into Gaetz, “a sign of the complex and high-stakes nature of the inquiry.”One of them is a public corruption investigator who deals specifically with child exploitation crimes.
