Rep. Matt Gaetz’s problems continue to worsen from bad to worse, as a UKTN News report last night revealed federal investigators look into a trip the Florida congressman made to the Bahamas at the end from 2018 or early 2019. Gaetz was traveling with an Orlando-based marijuana. Entrepreneur, hand surgeon and donor named Jason Pirozzolo, who allegedly paid for travel, accommodation and female escorts, multiple sources told UKTN News.

In a rambling editorial on the right Washington Examiner over the weekend, Gaetz wrote that he “never, ever paid women for sex.” But if Pirozzolo paid for the travel expenses to bring escorts across states or international lines for the purpose of having sex with the congressman, it would violate federal laws.

While Gaetz often denounces the “DC Swamp,” his relationship with Pirozzolo springs straight out of the Florida Swamp. For several years, Pirozzolo lobbied Gaetz to pass legislation for marijuana research. According to Files of the Federal Elections Committee, Pirozzolo made several donations to Florida Republicans between 2010 and 2018, including two donations of $ 1,000 each to Matt Gaetz’s campaign in 2016 and 2017, respectively.

“Congressman Matt Gaetz is working on legislation in Washington, DC that will help facilitate research at the national level,” Pirozzolo said in a July 2018 episode of the Ganjapreneur podcast. Pirozzolo invited Gaetz to speak at the American Medical Marijuana Physician Association conference in 2017 and 2018.

Gaetz has always supported research into medical cannabis. He introduced the medical cannabis research law in April 2018 and again in January 2019, but the bill was never put to a vote in the House. Last December, Gaetz was the only Republican co-sponsor of the Marijuana Reinvestment and De-listing Act (MORE), which would decriminalize marijuana federally and remove lower-level federal marijuana offenses.

The favors between Gaetz and Pirozzolo seem to have gone both ways. Gaetz pushed Pirozzolo to be considered Florida’s surgeon general, but instead Florida Governor Ron DeSantis appointed Pirozzolo to the board of directors of the Greater Orlando Airports Authority, which manages the airport. Orlando International. Matt Gaetz provided a reference.

Gaetz is also under federal investigation for allegedly having sex with and traveling with a 17-year-old girl, according to revelations in the New York Times Last week. The Republican Congressman from Panhandle from Florida has confirmed he is under investigation but denies all allegations.

Gaetz told Tucker Carlson on Fox News last week: “People can look at my travel records and see that it isn’t.” But the congressman’s personal and professional travel records are not publicly available, so they don’t reveal information that would exonerate him.
