GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz Paid Women for Sex Using Cash App and Apple Pay, Receipts Exist: Report

The New York Times reports that Rep. Matt Gaetz allegedly paid women — whom he met through sugar daddy websites — to have sex with him, and the transactions were documented on receipts from Cash App and Apple Pay:

Investigators believe Joel Greenberg, the former tax collector in Seminole County, Fla., who was indicted last year on a federal sex trafficking charge and other crimes, initially met the women through websites that connect people who go on dates in exchange for gifts, fine dining, travel and allowances, according to three people with knowledge of the encounters. Mr. Greenberg introduced the women to Mr. Gaetz, who also had sex with them, the people said...

The Times has reviewed receipts from Cash App, a mobile payments app, and Apple Pay that show payments from Mr. Gaetz and Mr. Greenberg to one of the women, and a payment from Mr. Greenberg to a second woman. The women told their friends that the payments were for sex with the two men, according to two people familiar with the conversations. Some of the men and women took ecstasy, an illegal hallucinogenic drug, before having sex, including Mr. Gaetz, two people familiar with the encounters said.

In some cases, Mr. Gaetz asked women to help find others who might be interested in having sex with him and his friends, according to two people familiar with those conversations. Should anyone inquire about their relationships, one person said, Mr. Gaetz told the women to say that he had paid for hotel rooms and dinners as part of their dates. The F.B.I. has questioned multiple women involved in the encounters, including as recently as January, to establish details of their relationships with Mr. Gaetz and his friends, according to text messages and two people familiar with the interviews.

One of the sites the men met women through was called Seeking Arrangement, which describes itself as a place where wealthy people find attractive companions and pamper them “with fine dinners, exotic trips and allowances.” The site’s founder has said it has 20 million members worldwide. The F.B.I. mentioned the website in a conversation with at least one potential witness, according to a person familiar with the conversation.

  1. A very close friend of Matt Gaetz, Joel Greenberg, is accused of embezzling more than $400K, fraudulently obtaining more than $432K in loans meant to help small businesses and 33 federal counts in all (as of April 1, 2021, they may have gone up in the meantime as today is April 2, 2021). As for Matt, the soon to be “Former Congressman” apparently, along with Mr. Greenberg (a now former Tax Collector for Seminole County, Florida) had some “funny business” trips with girls who may have been around 17, but not yet quite 18. Even I was surprised that in fact, the age of Consent in the state of Florida is in fact 18. This could be one of many stumbling blocks for Matt Gaetz and Joel Greenberg in the coming months. There are also allegations (nothing is verified) that the “Congressman” may have had some shenanigans with some boys who may have also been on the south side of 18. Warrants, indictments and even jail and a trial do not prove guilt. Now if a judge and/or jury says one or both are guilty of one or even 33 counts, we may call them criminals! We shall see! BTW, earlier on Facebook I said the the 17-year old girls were allegedly paid with hotel rooms, airfare, carfare, some less than legal drugs (Ecstasy) and dining. I apologize for my error but it is supposed to be “fine dining!”
