First GOP Rep. issues public call for Matt Gaetz’s resignation

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) became the first Republican to publicly demand Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) resign from office following allegations of a sex trafficking scandal.

Kinzinger’s tweeted the demand Thursday alongside a link to an article from The Daily Beast documenting the allegations.

The Daily Beast account describes $900 in cash transfers made between Gaetz and Joel Greenberg. Greenberg, the former Seminole County tax collector, currently faces his own scandal, including one case involving a 17-year-old girl.

Greenberg’s lawyer announced on the same day that Greenberg intends to take a plea in the case.

The federal investigation into Greenberg’s allegations led to concerns regarding connections with Gaetz. The congressman has refused to admit any wrongdoing, and no charges have yet been filed.

Kinzinger’s action is not his first criticism of leaders in his own party. He also voted to impeach former President Donald Trump following the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol building riot.

He stated following the events, “There is no doubt in my mind that the president of the United States broke his oath of office and incited this insurrection.”

Gaetz will likely continue to face calls for his resignation, though Kinzinger may be one of few Republicans. The ongoing investigation will certainly be important as the GOP seeks to win back the House in the 2022 midterm elections.

You are a fraud. The only difference between you post and a few others I’ve seen is the number 91. The others have been works88 and 98. The only one who makes any money on this scam is the person posting this garbage. They get paid for every gullible person who rushed to connect to the web address posted.

You should be required to pay advertising fees for your post.

They can’t rush to a conclusion. There has to be an investigation which may prove that Gaetz is not guilty of anything. They are always ready to throw out a Republican but when it is a democrat that is being investigated (like Cuomo), they give them lost of time and rope before they make any move against them.

Is it possible that Kinzinger is nothing more than a RINO? Gaetz is a ‘wait and see’ ‘innocent until proven guilty’ but, when he attacks his own party’s President for something we have all seen with our eyes, and know not to be true, it supports the RINO label.

Also, they are hoping that if they were to get Matt Gaetz to resign, a Democrat would be appointed to complete Gaetz’s term. That could help throw the balance in the House in their direction.

Today’s “guilty until proven innocent” concept provides convenience to the Dems, especially when purported by a GOP(?) member. It fits right in with the B/H administrations desire to have ultimate, unquestioned power over the United States populace. We have certainly received our deserved outcome for allowing the election of such a left-leaning, Constitutional rejecting pair. I only hope that there is sufficient time remaining until the next election to see enough lazy Republicans get over their dislike of the Trump personality and vote for a desirable and competent candidate that has to be out there somewhere. Finding said candidate is of much more than the utmost importance. If Trump is the best we can do, so be it. He’s a damn sight better than what we’ve got now.

Like Rush once said; “the longer a politician stays in office the more likely it is that they will become liberal.” Adam Kinzinger is a brain dead liberal, it’s easier, liberals never get criticized or accused of any wrong doing. Kinzinger is a liberal coward, they are perfect don’t you know?? And more than willing to point their finger at the other guy and betray their own! Ever heard of Judas?

Once again the left is out to destroy another republican. Charges without proof or an actual person coming out to admit to these charges. Yet that slug on the Intelligence Committee…..(what’s his name that slept & had the affair with the Chinese spy Fang Fang)…..they do nothing about and keep him on this committee!! Such hypocrits!!

Accusations have been an important agenda of the Democrats for years. They use these tactics against their Republican opponents. Maybe Gaetz’s Democrat opponent should be investigated. Also, Kinszinger is not a true Conservative or he would not demand Gaetz’s resignation without any proof of guilt. Rhinos, like Kinszinger, are traitors to our Country.

Amen, Kinzinger is a traitor to the conservative cause and hopefully he will be unseated in the election and replace by someone loyal to Trump and his policies!!
