Pam Keith is doing something many Americans wish that they could do. The Florida Democrat ran to represent the state’s 18th Congressional District and lost, but that is not it. No, she is doing that would make oh so many lives better.
She has filed a petition to disbar Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL), one of Donald Trump’s most loyal go-boys. When the president’s former personal attorney/fixer Michael Cohen testified against Trump before Congress, Gaetz trotted on over to the hearing room and stood just within Cohen’s peripheral vision.
So why does Keith want to disbar Trump? She is filing over Gaetz’s support for Trump’s challenges to the 2020 election, according to her tweet:
‘This petition to disbar Matt Gaetz has been filed. But you can still sign. I will update the Bar w/additional signatures after the holidays. Whether or not they choose to discipline him (they have censured him in the past), the record of his tenure will have this stain forever’
Even as the Donald has headed toward the door, Gaetz has remained as loyal as any follower. Part of that has been to support POTUS’ attempt to overturn the election aka commit a daylight coup:
‘[Gaetz was] one of the 126 House Republicans to sign an amicus brief supporting Texas’s effort to have the Supreme Curt overturn the election results in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Georgia.’
Her petition had 3,305 signatures by Tuesday afternoon. It claimed:
‘Gaetz acted in sedition designed to “tear apart the fabric of federalism that allows this nation to function and thrive…and violated standards for lawyers licensed in Florida, and should be sanctioned.’
Of course, Gaetz responded with a smarmy tweet:
‘Pam – I’ve never lost an election. Honest questions: How many times have you run? How many wins? (The voters just aren’t that into you…).’
