Shouldn't Matt Gaetz be dating Claudia Conway? You know, just to keep it in the deplorable family
Claudia has way too much self-esteem.

She wouldn't touch Matt with a 10 foot cattle prod.

He could probably get a blow job from KellyAnn though.

True. Although whether such a pardon would hold up if tested in federal court is another matter.

That seeking a preemptive presidential pardon in itself isn't automatic political suicide is a testament to how f'd up politics are right now.
So, by him seeking a "preemptive" pardon, he's outing himself as guilty, right? To accept a pardon is to acknowledge you are guilty of the crime of which you've been pardoned.

He didn't get awarded a pardon, and he hasn't been charged with anything. So at this time, all that matters is what the people make of the situation.

Technically, there has never been a legal test of accepting a pardon carrying an admission of guilt, and pardon's have been issued and accepted under the premise that it is believed a person was wrongfully convicted. The reference of Burdick v. US (1915) that a pardon carries an imputation of guilt was dictum.

All that said, it's quite an obvious implication to seek a pardon before even being charged with a crime implies that you are guilty of something.

Gotta say it would be epic if when Gaetz ultimately resigns the Governor replaced him with the former President.

I mean assuming what has been reported is true or even remotely true, bitch better.
He is looking at a mandatory 10 year sentence.
I like this line from the lawyer, ""I'm sure Matt Gaetz is not feeling very comfortable today," Scheller said".
