One of the men who U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz accused of being behind a plot to extort $25 million from his family in exchange for having a federal sex investigation into the congressman go away has been indicted on charges of wire fraud and attempting to stop authorities from viewing his IPhone.

A federal grand jury on Tuesday indicted Stephen Alford in Pensacola, Florida.

The indictment doesn’t name the victims or other alleged participants and refers to Matt Gaetz’s father, Don Gaetz, a former president of the Florida Senate, only as “D.G.”

The indictment says Alford was part of a scheme to get $25 million from “D.G.”




PENSACOLA, Fla. – Federal prosecutors have charged a convicted felon with attempting to defraud the family of Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz by offering a presidential pardon in exchange for a $25 million donation, according to an indictment unsealed Tuesday.

Stephen Michael Alford, who is currently on supervised probation in Florida for an unrelated fraud conviction, is accused of making the offer to the congressman’s father, Don Gaetz, a wealthy businessman and former state senator who once served as the president of the Florida Senate.

According to the indictment, Don Gaetz received a text message from an unnamed associate of Alford stating that his partner “will see to it that [Matt Gaetz] receives a Presidential Pardon, thus alleviating all his legal issues.”

Matt Gaetz is not charged with any crimes and has vigorously denied any wrongdoing.

Gaetz still sits un-charged at this point but the investigation is still on-going I believe.

This is damn peculiar.

So it was a convicted felon trying to sell a pardon, for what reason we don't know. Add to that the only person that has ever come forward against Gaetz with anything is a convicted felon that just plead guilty to 33 criminal counts and it gets even more weird.

Either Gaetz is the luckiest idiot on earth that has somehow managed to Forrest Gump his way through very treacherous legal waters or he is a genius.

Or, believe it or not, there is one last option: he is truly innocent and a bunch of criminals are trying to take him down with them to get a lighter sentence.
