Gaetz and Greenberg are both connected through Venmo to this then 18-year-old woman—who now works in the porn industry, according to a friend of the girl’s.... Greenberg and Gaetz are also connected on Venmo to at least one other woman whom Greenberg paid with taxpayer funds using a government-issued credit card. Seminole County auditors flagged hundreds of those payments as “questioned or unaccounted for,” and in total found more than $300,000 in suspicious or unjustified expenses.... Gaetz and Greenberg share Venmo connections with at least two women who received payments from Greenberg, and both have professional relationships with each other.
At different times during his career, Conyers ran afoul of House ethics standards and rules. In the early 1990s, Conyers was among hundreds of Members who made overdrafts of their accounts with the House bank, an internal financial service managed by a House officer, which allowed Members to deposit their pay checks and provided overdraft protection for Members without penalty. Conyers’s 273 overdrafts were among the highest. Although the repeated withdrawals did not technically violate House Rules at the time, the lack of oversight and accountability generated significant public backlash and led to major institutional reforms.
In November 2003, the Detroit Free Press published an extensive investigation detailing the use of Conyers’s congressional staff in political campaigns for his House races and his wife’s Detroit city council election. Following an Ethics Committee investigation, the committee reached an agreement with Conyers in December 2006 to take “a number of additional steps to ensure that his office complies with all rules and standards regarding campaign work by congressional staff.”
https://history.house.gov/People/Listin ... (C000714)/In fall 2017, news reports revealed that two years earlier Conyers had used funds from his congressional office in a confidentiality agreement to settle a sexual harassment charge brought by a former woman staff assistant. The disclosure came amid the #MeToo movement, as women across the country used Twitter and other media platforms to speak about their experiences as victims of sexual harassment and assault. As a result, Conyers stepped down as Ranking Member of the Judiciary Committee before resigning from the House on December 5, 2017. Conyers died in Detroit, Michigan, on October 27, 2019.

The latter state of affairs particularly applies to Republicans. If they support Trump, the Capitol-stormers and voter suppression, why would these morals-free imbeciles ditch somebody just because he used government money to pay for under-age sex? Seems to me to be right in the middle of the Republican arena - they're only jealous they couldn't do it too.
What slimeballs!Greenberg continued in the handwritten draft that he “confronted” the then-17-year-old and explained to her “how serious of a situation this was, how many people she put in danger.”
“She apologized and recognized that by lying about her age, she endangered many people,” he continued. “There was no further contact with this individual until after her 18th birthday.”But after she reached the age of legal consent in Florida, Greenberg re-established contact.
As The Daily Beast previously reported, about five months after her 18th birthday, Gaetz sent Greenberg $900 in two Venmo transactions—one titled “Test” and the other titled “hit up ___.” The blank contained a nickname for this girl, and Greenberg paid her and two other women a total of $900 about six hours later.
