Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Second aide to Rep. Matt Gaetz quits amid federal investigation, reportedly saying he didn't want to work at a tabloid”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Another staffer for Rep. Matt Gaetz has quit amid a federal investigation into the Florida Republican, The New York Times reported Thursday night.

Devin Murphy, Gaetz's legislative director, resigned last week, making him the second aide to quit since the investigation was made public. According to The Times, Murphy "told associates that he was interested in writing bills, not working at TMZ."

News for the departure comes the same day that Gaetz's press shop released a statement, attributed to "The Women of the Office," offering support for the beleaguered congressman, who has denied that he engaged in human trafficking, paid for sex using campaign funds, or had a sexual relationship with an underage woman.

Earlier on Thursday, a lawyer for Gaetz's friend and political ally, Joel Greenberg, announced that his client may be close to reaching a plea deal with the US Department of Justice. Greenberg has been charged with sex trafficking, among other crimes.
