And Matt actively reported it at the time (there's tweets from years ago) so this was a slow-rolling clusterfuck. And it is absolutely nowhere close to being over yet. This thing's still going to take some turns.

quote:

Gaetz’s romances with younger women have attracted some scrutiny. In 2018, a college student confirmed to HuffPo reporter Matt Fuller—who is now a Daily Beast editor—that she was dating the congressman. “Matt Gaetz is my boyfriend,” she wrote in an email, after Fuller got a tip about a young woman shadowing Gaetz.

In 2019, Mother Jones reported that a staffer admonished Gaetz via text about his relationship with a camera-happy 21-year-old: “Don’t be surprised if many of the conservatives and competitors, like Cris Dosev in Florida CD1, may frown upon her sexually explicit images, her videos showcasing her multiple capabilities to smoke weed, and her flagrant application of language as antithetical to the values of Northwest Florida.” According to Mother Jones, Gaetz called the publication “pleading” not to release the identities of the women he was dating.

We thought he was a purely partisan hack, but it looks like he is a true believer in his bizarre world view. It's still a right-wing world view, but it does mean his rulings are much, much more than the blind "R's always good, D's always bad" we feared.

Conservative judicial philosophers were always made up bs to justify doing what they wanted, and abandoned whenever they got in the way. During the Trump admin one of the leading architects of said philosophies straight up published an article saying "these were just political ploys but now that McConnell and Trump stacked the judiciary we can impose fascism from the bench".

But a generation of conservative lawyers have grown up studying these interpretation philosophies and taking them at face value. So sometimes they'll miss the part about being a fig leaf and apply them in ways that are not immediately what conservatives want. That's why on one hand you have Alito nakedly choosing the most conservative position possible but Gorsuch giving half of Oklahoma back to the tribes because that's the literal wording of the treaty.

But this is exactly what I mean. Because they are actual believers in the ideology instead of being partisan, it sets the GOP back because the ideology allows for progressive steps to be taken. They aren't obstructionist, they actually want whats (they believe) is best for the country. Its not ideal, but otoh it's handed the transgender movement a bigger win than we ever got under a progressive court.

Alito is easily the most disingenuous one on the bench, he's basically Scalia but with no charisma.

I can actually respect that in a way while I can't respect someone like Alito.
