Gaetz Crony Is “Cooperating” With Federal Prosecutors

Politico reports:

The legal peril Rep. Matt Gaetz is facing appeared to increase sharply after a court hearing indicated that one of his close friends, former Seminole County, Fla., tax collector Joel Greenberg, is likely cooperating with federal prosecutors.

The federal probe looking into whether Gaetz had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl and paid for her travel began last year and grew out of the Greenberg case. Gaetz has not been charged and has denied any wrongdoing.
