Posted on 02/25/2020 10:39:12 AM PST by newfreep
Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz hired away a staffer from Texas Democratic Rep. Sylvia Garcia, who served as a Democratic impeachment manager.
Isabela Belchior, who served as a staffer for Garcia throughout the impeachment hearings, accepted the position for Gaetz shortly after the Senate voted to acquit President Donald Trump, Politico first reported. Garcia was one of the few House Democrats who had the chance to argue their case for impeachment on the Senate floor.
We are happy to welcome Isabela Belchior to our team. Our office believes in second chances, Gaetzs office told the Daily Caller in a statement when asked about the new hire. Gaetzs office confirmed that she accepted the position on February 14.

Something’s up with him ...
(Scratching head ...)
If he has, he will confirm my reluctance to trust him completely. He comes across as smarmy to me.
I didnt mind what he said to Joy Behar about wearing black and being in mourning about the dem debate, but I did not like the way he said it. Way too sarcastic.
I don’t think there is another FReeper with more disdain for POLITICIANS than I. However, the permanent “Congressional staffer” cadre that shuffles through DC from one administration to the next and from one party to the other is probably our biggest problem.
Wish I had a method to exterminate ‘em all, but I do not.
Because there no other qualified Republican candidates to hire? She will end up being a mole, leaker.
The way to do something about it is to bring your own staff and only keep on the best of what remains. Until new congressmen and senators start doing thatthe problem will continue.
A betrayer. A leopard can’t change its spots and a snake is still a snake. Be very leery of Gaetz.

hard to find good congressional staffer hep in DC now that the Awan gang has moved back to pakistan
Any Republican that even talks to Joy Behar...is an idiot.
Doubt that FRiend....
If I had to guess, Isabella is using her "attributes" and "taking one for the team" to get info on Gaetz and GOP.
This is a BAD idea...
Couldn't it also possibly be the other way around -- Gaetz getting inside information on them now that tables appear to be turning ?
Scratch ANY republican hard enough, and you will find a dip wad, servile, quisling, patsy. Remember this each time you hear one actually saying something true or worthy (cue Linda and the rest . . .)
[Has Matt Gaetz officially gone t the dark side?]
He already lost me when he voted against POTUS re: War Powers resolution.
This crap just solidifies that.
NEVER TRUST A DEMOCRAT.....NEVER.
He’s been compromised. He seemed “different” since the impeachment farce, whenever I’d see him on Fox News. He now has this smug look about him I never noticed before. Deep State got to him. Another one bites the dust.
First thought in my mind. She must be a looker. He will be another Murkowski/Collin.Romney.
Is he married?
She's very pretty ....
..... accept the position.
