As expected, Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz’s associate Joel Greenberg plead guilty this morning in federal court. Greenberg plead guilty to six federal crimes including bribery and sex trafficking of a 17-year-old girl.

The Hill reports:

Greenberg, a former Seminole County, Fla., tax collector, is at the center of the legal investigation looking into Gaetz and allegations against him involving sex crimes.

Reports in April revealed that Greenberg was cooperating with federal authorities and had told investigators that he and Gaetz had given multiple women money and gifts in exchange for sex.

Gaetz has denied any wrongdoing.

This story is developing and will be updated as more information becomes available.
