Looks like Matt is in a bit of a pickle...

From the article:

Joel Greenberg, a former Florida tax collector and close confidant of Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz, formally pleaded guilty on Monday morning to six federal charges in a court hearing, admitting to a federal judge that he had knowingly solicited and paid a minor for sex.

Greenberg spoke sparingly throughout the 45-minute hearing and with a tone of dejection, responding "yes" and "I do" as the judge read the details of his plea agreement. He wore a dark jumpsuit and had his hands shackled in front of him.
The guilty plea from Greenberg, a former Seminole County, Florida, tax commissioner, comes after he struck a deal with federal prosecutors to avoid some of the other 33 federal charges he had faced that ranged from identity theft to fraud and bribery allegations.
