Rep. Matt Gaetz Snorted Cocaine With Escort Who Had ‘No Show’ Gov’t Job
When Rep. Matt Gaetz attended a 2019 GOP fundraiser in Orlando, his date that night was someone he knew well: a paid escort and amateur Instagram model who led a cocaine-fueled party after the event, according to two witnesses.

The Florida congressman’s one-time wingman, Joel Greenberg, will identify that escort to investigators as one of more than 15 young women Gaetz paid for sex, according to a source familiar with the investigation.

But what distinguishes this woman, Megan Zalonka, is that she turned her relationship with Greenberg into a taxpayer-funded no-show job that earned her an estimated $7,000 to $17,500, according to three sources and corresponding government records obtained by The Daily Beast.

On Oct. 26, 2019, Gaetz attended the “Trump Defender Gala” fundraiser as the featured speaker at the Westgate Lake Resort in Orlando. Two witnesses present recalled friends reconvening at Gaetz’s hotel room for an after-party, where Zalonka prepared lines of cocaine on the bathroom counter. One of those witnesses distinctly remembers Zalonka pulling the drugs out of her makeup bag, rolling a bill of cash, and joining Gaetz in snorting the cocaine.

Yep. When we raised goats, they would team up and bend trees over so they could eat the leaves. But not as bad when they step on your foot.
When I was in highschool in the tiny town of Joseph, OR I had a schoolmate who lived on the back side of Mt. Howard in what would now be termed an "off-grid" log cabin with his grandparents who raised goats
It was pretty harsh in the winter when there'd be 2-3 feet of snow and nothing but a fireplace for heat

Joel Greenberg to Plead Guilty & Cooperate with Feds. Who Can He Give Up: Gaetz? Stone? DeSantis?

Matt Gaetz's criminal bestie Joel Greenberg has agreed to plead guilty and cooperate with federal prosecutors. Greenberg got an extraordinarily generous plea offer: plead guilty to just 6 of the 33 federal crimes of which you're indicted and the prosecutors will dismiss 27 counts.

I negotiated countess cooperation agreements as a 30-year prosecutor. Particularly in the extremely busy criminal practice in the courts of Washington DC. But I never negotiated quite so generous a plea agreement.

What can we glean from the Greenberg plea offer? Greenberg must have given blockbuster information about the criminal activity of others. Who might these others be? Here are some leading candidates.

Greenberg To Plead Guilty in 86-page Plea/Cooperation Agreement Implicating Other Unnamed "Men"

Matt Gaetz's criminal bestie Joel Greenberg has agreed to plead guilty and cooperate with federal prosecutors against others. His plea agreement specifically mentions that he provided prosecutors information about other "men" engaging in commercial sex acts with a minor. Not surprisingly, the "men" are not named, which is designed to avoid giving those targets a heads up before arrests are made.

Here are some of the specifics and implications of Greenberg's guilty plea.

I'm naturally a skeptic, but it's looking like some justice is coming. It also looks like just the beginning.

Next up, Matt Gaetz and a few prominent republican men, who are about to become infamous. Now that they've got the plea for 6 charges in the bag, it's time to make the deal pay dividends. It's interesting to note that all the charges are for sex trafficking and the other serious crimes he committed are being dealt away. These particular crimes are tied to the other targets of the investigation, the ones we will soon be hearing about..

Gaetz associate pleads guilty to sex trafficking charges

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Florida politician who emerged as a central figure in the Justice Department’s sex trafficking investigation into Rep. Matt Gaetz pleaded guilty Monday to six federal charges and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors as part of a plea deal.

Joel Greenberg, a longtime associate of Gaetz, appeared in federal court in Orlando. He pleaded guilty to six of the nearly three dozen charges he faced, including sex trafficking of a minor, and he admitted that he had paid at least one underage girl to have sex with him and other men.

Gaetz was not mentioned in the plea agreement or during the court hearing. But Greenberg’s cooperation — as a key figure in the investigation and a close ally of Gaetz — may escalate the potential legal and political liability that the firebrand Republican congressman is facing.

Federal prosecutors are examining whether Gaetz and Greenberg paid underage girls and escorts or offered them gifts in exchange for sex, according to two people familiar with the matter. Investigators have also been looking at whether Gaetz and his associates tried to secure government jobs for some of the women, the people said. They are also scrutinizing Gaetz’s connections to the medical marijuana sector, including whether his associates sought to influence legislation Gaetz sponsored.

The people had knowledge of the investigation but were not allowed to publicly discuss the ongoing investigation and spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity.

Gaetz has denied the allegations and any accusation of wrongdoing and has said repeatedly he will not resign from Congress. A spokesman for the congressman has said Gaetz “never had sex with a minor and has never paid for sex.”

During the nearly hourlong hearing Monday, Greenberg acknowledged he understood the charges he was pleading guilty to and the possible punishment he faced and told the judge he was of a sound frame of mind.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Leslie Hoffman told Greenberg that even though prosecutor may request some leniency from his sentencing judge because of his cooperation, there was no guarantee a judge would agree to the prosecutors’ recommendations and that Greenberg would be unable to change his plea. No sentencing date was immediately set.

Monday’s court appearance marked the first time Greenberg has been seen in court since the Gaetz investigation blew into the public spotlight in March. Outside the courthouse, a plane flew over during the hearing pulling a banner that read: “TICK TOCK MATT GAETZ.”

After the hearing Greenberg was taken back to jail in handcuffs and shackles, wearing a dark inmate uniform and looking worn down.

As part of his plea deal, Greenberg, a Republican who served as the tax collector in Seminole County, admitted he recruited women for commercial sex acts and paid them more than $70,000 from 2016 to 2018, sometimes through online payment services like Venmo. They include at least one underage girl he paid to have sex with him and others, the plea agreement says.

Prosecutors wrote in the plea agreement that Greenberg had introduced the girl to others, who also “engaged in commercial sex acts” with her. The agreement does not identify the men.

Greenberg first met the girl online from a website where she was posing as an adult and first paid her $400 after a meeting on a boat, the documents said. He later invited her to hotels in Florida where he and others would have sex with her and supplied the girl and other people with ecstasy, according to the plea deal.

In total, prosecutors say Greenberg had sex with the girl at least seven times.

Greenberg’s legal scrutiny began when he was arrested last summer on charges of stalking a political opponent, Brian Beute. Prosecutors said he mailed fake letters to the school where his opponent worked, signed by a nonexistent “very concerned student,” who alleged the opponent had engaged in sexual misconduct with another student.

“I wouldn’t want to be him,” Beute, who showed up at the courthouse on Monday, said after the hearing.

Greenberg is also accused of embezzling $400,000 from the Seminole County Tax Collector’s office, according to the indictment filed against him.
