1.“What if I could get you on a private trip to Bahamas next week w/congressman #MattGaetz & #HalseyBeshears,” Pirozzolo wrote in a msg reviewed by @Jason_Garcia

“Obviously this is a very very private deal,” Pirozzolo wrote to the investor. “No pictures. Etc. Very private.”
2.That September 2018 getaway is now reportedly part of a federal investigation into allegations of sex trafficking and public corruption that has its sights on Gaetz, Beshears and Pirozzolo.
3.According to a report by CNN, investigators with the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section are examining the trip as they hunt for potential “pay-to-play” arrangements involving the trading of gifts for influence over medical marijuana policy. cnn.com/2021/04/23/pol…
4.Five young women reportedly joined the 3 men on the trip. @CBSNews has reported Pirozzolo paid for escorts & travel expenses, w/investigators probing whether it may have been part of an attempt to curry favor w/Gaetz on marijuana policy. cbsnews.com/news/matt-gaet…
5.Pirozzolo’s messages shed new light on how he viewed the trip, revealing that he explicitly touted Gaetz & Beshears’ power in the area of #medicalmarijuana & suggested that access to them in a private setting would be valuable.
9.Investigators are believed to have learned about the trip as part of their probe into former Tax Collector #JoelGreenberg, a close Gaetz ally who pleaded guilty to paying more than $70,000 to young women & a 17yo girl to have sex with him & his friends. orlandosentinel.com/politics/joel-…
13.Gaetz was elected to Congress in 2016. 2y later, as one of new FL Gov. Ron DeSantis’ closest advisors, Gaetz helped Beshears get appointed sec of the DBPR, a state agency that regulates everything from alcohol to timeshares.
14.Gaetz and Beshears then helped persuade DeSantis to put Pirozzolo on the board that runs Orlando International Airport, where the three men were part of an effort to oust some of the agency’s existing leadership.
18.Pirozzolo was a prominent (R) fundraiser, hosting receptions at his Winter Garden home & personally flying politicians on private planes. In Aug 2018 — 1 mo before trip to The Bahamas — #Pirozzolo hosted a fundraiser for #RonDeSantis w/Gaetz & Beshears.
20.Pirozzolo tried raise money for Gaetz by leveraging Gaetz’s influence on marijuana policy. 2017, Pirozzolo pressed execs at marijuana tech hoping to do business in FL to donate $10,000 to Gaetz’s campaign while arranging a call between Gaetz & the CEO.
21.Let's not forget that #JoelGreenberg also hired "consultants" that would have come directly from #JasonPirozzolo, like #MeganZalonka
22.#JoelGreenberg also hired #ShawnRichmond $24,000 unnecessary/no work contract. Shawn used to work at #AMMPA according to his LinkedIn. He's also buddies with #ErnieFalcoIII #WadeVose and the Red Carpet Monday crew.

Alvarado really shouldn't act so confident... but the #darkmoney in Florida game has played fine a long time.

Here's the problem now; #JoelGreenberg knows & no one is #manafort enough to protect each other. H/t @LeaLovesUSA
@Jason_Garcia I guess your article was boring for him. Image

HI - Question here

Are we curious at all about this Liberate Florida PAC & it's potential #MedicalMarijuana connections? Because maybe we should be curious about that.
@Jason_Garcia @JeffWeinerOS @LeaLovesUSA ImageImage
Particularly because:

Liberate Florida PAC, run by Andrea Roca signed paperwork on 06/29/2020, and was received on 07/06/2020 & created.

While Liberate Florida, Inc. was effective w/Corp Div on 07/06/2020
LiberateGLV, Inc. was set up 06/08/2020
@Jason_Garcia @JeffWeinerOS ImageImageImageImage
Or possibly that #AMMPA, the co. that #JasonPirozzolo started, (when his friends in legis wrote a last min amendment to require an MD so he could start AMMPA) had #liberatewpb #liberatefl at Cannabis Conference in Miami w/#MattGaetz? or #BrianMast & celebrating the legis? ImageImageImageImage

1/ Florida legislators’ PACs amass hundreds of millions of dollars
By Mark Harper By Abigail Brashear
Dec 28, 2019 @dbnewsjournal

Article: news-journalonline.com/news/20191228/…

Video 1: PACS • How do they affect spending?
2/Direct donations to campaigns are limited to $1k. Lawmakers have a way around that: their own PACs. Allows big$ contributions, lavish spending & curious exchanges between lawmakers.

Video 2: PACS • How do they affect the relationship between lobbyists and legislators?
3/There's limits on amounts of 💲 corps & ind can give directly. But thanks to (R)-led legislation 2013, lawmakers now control their PACs. The amount that can be donated to a legislator's PAC= LIMITLESS.

Video 3: PACS • How have they affected the amount of money in politics?
