Matt Gaetz and his wingman

Florida has never seen a tax collector like Joel Greenberg.

His Seminole County tax office was the only one in the state where employees were armed with pistols and body armor. He wore his own law enforcement badge and carried a sidearm at tax collector conferences. He let people pay property taxes with Bitcoin. He tweeted Islamophobic comments, installed a remote-controlled sprinkler system to spray petition gatherers he didn’t like and doled out fat contracts to his groomsmen shortly after winning the usually humdrum Orlando-area office with a campaign to stop “crony capitalism.”

Now Greenberg’s in a federal jail, awaiting trial on a wide-ranging 33-count indictment alleging a host of financial crimes, stalking, identity theft and sex trafficking a minor, all of which have become national news because of his close association with Rep. Matt Gaetz, the Florida Republican congressman fighting for his political life.

Their relationship is central to the allegations against Gaetz, a fierce Donald Trump ally who denies having sexual relations with a 17-year-old and prostitutes. Together, the taxman and the congressman shared a life-in-the-fast lane existence that contradicted the staid image that most elected officials are careful to maintain.

1. All of This Is Just a Desperate Ploy To Hide the Fact That Gaetz is Still a Virgin

You heard it here first!

Too bad his best bud had to be jailed to sustain the story.

2. I thought Gaetz represents CD FL-1 in the Florida Panhandle

... which is west of Tallahassee. It doesn't explain why he would have anything to do with this guy from somewhere near Orlando. OK mentally they might be twins, morally they might have a lot in common, but how do they even know each other? Such a weird story.

Also how many people realize that Florida's 1st Congressional District was also represented by Joe Scarborough (Morning Joe) until he resigned in 2001?
