US Rep Gaetz Under Fire…Grandson Of Rugby ND Mayor?
Benefit of the doubt with United States Representative Matt Gaetz. He's in a storm of...jeez, maybe we don't even want to know.
Like all these types of stories, I think to myself- get back to me when you actually know something. But the array of "somethings" is alluring in all the backstories being reported. Let me give a few angles here... Failing New York Times, CNN, and Fox News.
So that will go down as it will...in a ridiculous way it seems.
But let's see how it turns out that US Republican Representative Matt Gaetz has a grand dad that was once the Mayor of Rugby, North Dakota.
This blurb from a generally "meh" news source- The US Sun
Don Gaetz is 74 years old and a former Republican member of the Florida State Senate.
He represented District 1 from 2006 to 2016 and served as President of the Senate from 2013 to 2014.
Gaetz did not seek re-election to the Florida State Senate in 2016.
His dad was Jerry Gaetz, a former mayor of Rugby, North Dakota, and a state legislator.
And it seems Jerry was also a Lieutenant Governor candidate at the 1964 North Dakota Republican Party state convention. I was born in 1964. So, this is an old timey story rooted in a North Dakota political family that took their show to Florida.
Now that show is about to take a national stage.
I have no idea how Representative Gaetz's story will end, but it seems there's gonna be a ridiculously chippy narrative that will get us there.
Grab some popcorn y'all!
