Julianna, who says she’s faced intense harassment from Gaetz’s supporters online, then took the opportunity to fundraise for abortion rights.


As she racked up money for abortion access, Julianna told Newsweek that Gaetz has “just learned a valuable lesson that should be echoed to every Republican who thinks about crossing or targeting me—don’t mess with Texas women. I’m not just a teenager, I’m an abortion rights activist and a political strategist—and a damn good one at that.”

It would be irresponsible not to note, at this point in the story, that this is a very unusual interaction for Gaetz to have with a teenage girl—usually he just pays underage women for sex via Venmo without toggling the “private” button on the interaction. You’d think he’d care a lot about teenagers having abortion rights! Go straight to prison, Matt.
