Just in case anyone forgets, Matt Gaetz took a moment this week to remind everyone of his creepy obsession with teenage girls.
On Tuesday, the anti-gay lawmaker tweeted “#FreeBritneyNOW” with an article published by Variety on the latest developments in legal issues for the former teenage pop idol.
Prior to the teen sex and prostitution scandal he is currently in, Gaetz made it his mission to help Spears escape his court-ordered guardianship after watching the documentary Framing Britney Spears.

He spoke about her in interviews with Fox News, Newsmax and TMZ, and tweeted incessantly about her for over a month. He also repeatedly called on Representative Jerry Nadler to authorize a hearing on guardianship and mistreatment of guardians. And he attacked his father, Jamie Spears, for being a “crook” and an “abuser”.
Now, most people would agree that tweeting about someone who dressed up as a sexy schoolgirl at 17 probably isn’t the best way to make people forget that you yourself are under investigation for allegedly raping a 17 year old schoolgirl. Then again, most people aren’t like Matt Gaetz.
And now the answers …

You are really desperate for anything to avoid the fact that you are under investigation for paying for sex with an underage girl.
