For Conservative Voters Who Think Rep. Matt Gaetz Is A Great Conservative, Think Again!

By Dave Levine

I have always believed in calling a spade “a spade”. I call things as I see them and I try not to “pedistalize” faux Conservatives and other phoneys.

That applies to Rep. Matt Gaetz who some believe is “a rising star” in the GOP.

Here’s what I wrote today in a Comments section of a piece about Gaetz:

For those here who love Gaetz, keep in mind that he spearheaded National Jailbreak (my term for The First Step Act) in the House. Apparently, he believed that releasing 4,000 federal drug trafficker-inmates from prison to “buy” a few black votes was worth it. Trump got 1% more black votes in 2020 than he did in 2016…Also, at least 1 innocent American died at the hands of one of those released and at least 1 American woman was raped by one of those released. I wonder how the families of those victims feel about Gaetz’s National Jailbreak!

If Gaetz was a true Conservative, he would have joined 36 of his Conservative colleagues in voting AGAINST The First Step Act on December 20, 2018 and he would have told President Trump that The First Step Act sets a terrible precedent and was a terrible idea.
