Just in case anyone forgot, Matt Gaetz took a moment this week to remind everyone about his creepy obsession with teenage girls.
On Tuesday, the antigay lawmaker tweeted, “#FreeBritneyNOW” along with an article published by Variety about the latest development in the former teen pop idol’s legal troubles.
Prior to the teen sex/prostitution scandal he’s currently wrapped up in, Gaetz made it his personal mission to help Spears escape her court-ordered conservatorship after watching the Framing Britney Spears documentary.
He talked about her during interviews with Fox News, Newsmax, and TMZ, and tweeted incessantly about her for over a month. He also repeatedly called on Rep. Jerry Nadler to allow a hearing on conservatorship and guardian abuse. And he attacked her father, Jamie Spears, for being a “grifter” and an “abuser.”
As a “Millennial and a huge Britney Spears fan,” @RepMattGaetz is among the group of lawmakers who want to help ‘Free Britney.’ @seanspicer @LyndsayMKeith https://t.co/VlT7z8drtO pic.twitter.com/ozIym0wOQA

Now, most people would agree that tweeting about someone who dressed up as a sexy school girl when she was 17 is probably not the best way to make people forget that you yourself are under investigation for allegedly raping a 17-year-old school girl. Then again, most people aren’t like Matt Gaetz.
And now, the responses…

You’re really reaching in desperation for anything to avoid the fact that you are under investigation for paying for sex with an underage girl.
