Sounds almost exactly like how I got my "daughter" who calls me by my first name. When she talks about me to other folks she calls me her step dad.

Likeliest scenario:

Gaetz is just drastically exaggerating his relationship with this kid. Gaetz dated his mom or sister and has kind of took him under his wing. Maybe once or twice a year they do something together and Gaetz helps him out financially sometimes. So to say "I know what it is like to raise minority children because sometimes I hang out with a Cuban kid" would be very deceitful and fits Matt Gaetz's overall character.

Because nothing says "family values" like claiming you're single until it benefits you not to be and how you're "so proud" of the son you've been calling a "helper" for at least 3 years.

Leaving out whether Nestor is his "son" or whatever, let's at least acknowledge the insanity of all this: Gaetz went batsh!t on a black congressman because that black congressman suggested Gaetz didnít know what it was like to have a black son. So Gaetz revealed his secret "son" Nestor just to own a lib. Reality check: Gaetz still doesnít have a black son.

He has a minority "step son" and the "kid" is not a "kid" anymore.

If he just wanted to bugger a boy he'd find a street urchin and do it anonymously. Has he ever traveled to Thailand? That might convince me he's a pervert and not a hero to a kid who desperately needed a stable father figure.

There's a lot about Gaetz to hate if you're into hating folks, but I think raising an at risk minority child as his own is simply not a reason to hate him. I hate his party and his ideology, me and Matt would probably agree on a lot more things than we disagree about.

There's definitely some weirdness going on in the scenario. The link is from 2014. Six months in the country and already being paraded around. Hmm

Mebbe Matt and Nestor liked to role play the Elian Gonzalez arrest just for fun. smile

Lucky kid! I expect that(although he's an assh*le) Gaetz is a decent and compassionate guy. And that he's not too racist to be dating a brown girl. I get the idea that they lived together for a time and for one reason or another she left the boy behind for a while. A father/son relationship developed and, bob's your uncle, here we are.

Essentially that's how I got my kid. She lived with me for ten years and is no less my daughter for lack of a blood relationship.

Gaetz is well loved by his constituency and if it turned out there was a sexual relationship between the two, they're probably mostly okay with it. I am too. It's odd that you aren't.
He might be queer as a three dollar bill, he might be a boylover. Not everybody can be out of the closet. But his official stance on that is that of his constituency.

Some people are saying the two met when she was a client of Matt's when he was representing her in a court action of some sort. Because dating your client is exactly the type of sound judgement a lawyer should have.

I'm just thinking here: Having a very White Cuban "son" growing up in Florida is NOTHING LIKE the "having a Black son" experience. BTW, I don't have any children, but I do have three Black nieces.
