“They’re coming for me because I fight for the people. And I always will.”
You know you’re over the target when insane leftist reporters start harassing everyone in your inner-circle, outer-circle, and those that have simply passed you in the hallway. The relentless and frightening harassment heaped upon Matt Gaetz (R-Fl) and those around him is coming from multiple sources; all lunatic leftists, obsessed with the courageous and effective legislator.
Mr. Gaetz spoke with John Soloman of Just The News: “Time and time again, what a reporter will do is contact someone that maybe I’ve had a relationship with, maybe I haven’t had any relationship with, maybe I’ve only been in the same room with one time,” Gaetz told the John Solomon Reports podcast. “But they’ll say to a person, ‘You know, look, we are going to write your name into a story that will have sex trafficking and Matt Gaetz in the headline unless you provide us some bad information, some embarrassing conduct about Gaetz. And if you do that, well then your name will be protected, your reputation will be protected.’”
Matthew Phelan, a Mother Jones reporter has harassed a number of Gaetz associates demanding they basically make stuff up about Mr. Gaetz to keep their names out of the news and themselves out of trouble with the law.
A lady from Gaetz’s district who was contacted by Phelan, emailed him claiming she has “never been harassed by Matt Gaetz… Any interaction with him or his office has always been respectful and kind. You stated someone told you I received some kind of death threat and that’s just a false accusation.”
Mr. Phelan didn’t like that answer:
Phelan also left a twisted voicemail for a former staffer, claiming that Mr. Gaetz was secretly bisexual, occasionally hooked up with men, potentially accidentally killed someone and that he was being blackmailed with a “handful of sex tapes”:
Days after leaving her the bizarre voicemail, Phelan texted the former staffer this doozy:
Another rabid reporter, Jose Pagliery of the far-left Daily Beast blog has also gotten in on the action, texting a female friend of Mr. Gaetz:
In response to the matter, Rep. Gaetz stated, “The media has bullied people into lying about me, and now we have even more indisputable proof. This is not a free press, it is an army of America-Last operatives. They’re coming for me because I fight for the people. And I always will.”
