Gaetz’s letter was prompted by a recent report that he and his allies in Congress may have committed crimes during their time in office. According to The New York Times, Gaetz wrote: “I am writing to ask you to consider granting me a pardon for any crimes that I may have committed during my time as a member of Congress.” The letter went on to list some of the accusations against him, including “the allegations that I used my position as an elected official to obtain sex from women working in my district office.”
When asked about whether or not he planned on seeking a pardon, Gaetz told the New York Times: “I don’t know if I will or not, but I probably will. It’s something that I think we should all consider because there are so many people out there who do things like this and get away with it and they should not be able to do that. You know what I mean? And so, it’s something that we all need to be cognizant of and think about because it does happen all over this country every single day and we need to make sure that these people are held accountable for their actions.”
Happy Friday! Started the day in Bettendorf to meet with city leaders about issues facing the Scott County area. We discussed the need for the Biden Admin to come back to the table & work on a bipartisan bill focused on true infrastructure, not liberal wish lists. #99CountyTour https://t.co/WIRt9tyrIQ
