Since in inception the Freedom Caucus has shown to be anything but a good spokesman for Freedom.
It seems that sexual abuse is around for two of the most vocal members of the Caucus….
First there is Jim (Gym) Jordan and the allegations that he looked the other way during sexual abuse on the OSU wrestling team while Jordan was a coach.
A former Ohio State wrestler has accused Rep. Jim Jordan — one of the most powerful conservatives in Congress — of knowingly ignoring sexual abuse allegations while Jordan was a wrestling coach at Ohio State University.
In April, Ohio State announced it was opening an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against its former wrestling team physician, Dr. Richard Strauss.
Strauss, who served as the team’s doctor from the mid-1970s to the late 1990s, died in 2005. Jordan, an Ohio Republican first elected to the House in 2006, worked as an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State from 1987 until 1995.
Jordan has been contacted by officials investigating the abuse allegations but he has not yet responded, according to a spokeswoman for the law firm representing Ohio State.
Now Jordan’s buddy and co-member of the Freedom Caucus, Matt Gaetz has been cited in a sex trafficking case……and of course there is a good excuse…..
Rep. Matt Gaetz has confirmed that he is under federal investigation for “sexual conduct with women”—but he says the allegations “are as searing as they are false.” The conservative Florida Republican confirmed the investigation to Axios hours after the New York Times reported that investigators are looking into whether the 38-year-old had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl and violated sex-trafficking laws by paying for her to travel with him. Sources told the Times that the Justice Department investigation was opened during the final months of the Trump administration. The sources said the Gaetz investigation was connected to the investigation of Gaetz associate Joel Greenberg, a former tax collector in Florida who was indicted last year on charges including sex trafficking of a child.
“I have a suspicion that someone is trying to recategorize my generosity to ex-girlfriends as something more untoward,” Gaetz tells the Times. Gaetz, who has not been charged, tells Axios that the allegations are part of “an extortion effort against my family for $25 million.” He says there are “people at the Department of Justice who are trying to criminalize my sexual conduct, you know when I was a single guy.” He announced his engagement in December. Gaetz says he definitely “provided” for women he dated and paid for flights and hotel rooms, but he is “absolutely confident” none of them were underage. Earlier Tuesday, Axios reported that sources said Gaetz, who was first elected to the House in 2016, was considering leaving Congress before the next election to take a job at Newsmax.
Like all good cowards….he will run for cover in the conspiracy world of NewsMax.
Finally, what fresh Hell is hiding in the membership of the Freedom Caucus?
