Rep. Matt Gaetz announces ad buy to 'fight back' against CNN, allegations

Source: Politico

Rep. Matt Gaetz on Wednesday announced a six-figure ad buy for a spot that targets CNN, as he fights to save his political career amid sexual trafficking allegations.

The new 30-second ad will be featured in the Florida Republican’s congressional district and nationally on select cable networks, according to a statement from Gaetz’s congressional campaign. The ad marks the beginning of Gaetz’s counteroffensive, as he “fight[s] back against a multiweek fake news cycle against him,” it said.

“Now we see what’s really behind all of this: Democratic Party and media-driven smears aimed at taking out a Congressman of the United States,” a spokesperson for the Friends of Matt Gaetz said in the statement.

In recent weeks, Gaetz, a firebrand conservative and staunch Donald Trump supporter, has been embroiled in a growing controversy as media reports have detailed a Justice Department investigation into claims against him of a possible sexual relationship with a minor and paying for her to travel across state lines, which would violate sex trafficking laws. One trip that has been under scrutiny is a September 2018 weekend getaway to the Bahamas.

Must be nice to have six figures to burn. If I'm not mistaken the investigation was started by the Trump Justice Department.

1. This will change no minds....but it might expose ignorant folks to Matt's current problem.

Happy that media labels Matt as a "conservative", though. Real political conservatives (if they exist) might take umbrage to this association.

2. "I am not a child sex trafficker, no matter what you may have heard"? Sounds like a winner.

4. But is it?

Overwhelming, that is? I sure hope so. I’m hoping the investigators found kiddie porn on his phone. But so far we haven’t seen a lot. Let’s hope that changes.

6. Greenburg's been spilling his guts for months!

We'll see what's rally behind this sounds like every whiny, delusional paranoid person ever. The grand conspiracy out to take down a congressman...

uh, no, you're not that powerful. No one's trying to take you down, Matt. You venmoed your way into underage girls pants all by yourself. I think you're just mad they said you were trafficking underage girls across state lines. Bahamas is international level trafficking. Get that straight, CNN!

another GOP Sex scandal from the party of hypocritical fake family values and sexual perversion.

8. Sure Mattie, spend daddy's money.

Because daddy's money is all the donations you're gonna get. Especially since Trump has decided you are nobody.

9. Tainting the waters of the jury pool.

If he uses these ads where he will face trial, he'll win some jurors over before they're even seated.
He doesn't care what I think so what other reason would he have to run these ads? I'm pretty sure he can't do this after he's indicted.
