Interesting if true:

This is one of those "future SBA fraud charges" referenced by Joel Greenberg's lawyer. He's a Florida state rep and he introduced the "Don't Say Gay" bill.

Joe-Joe is rocking that high fade haircut so popular with SS members of the Nazi Party, circa 1938. Where's the sprig of edelweiss he picked the morning this pic was shot?

I can't speak to his guilt or innosence on the charges but his support for the "Don't Say Gay" bill convinces me that he is a homophobic hater.

Joe Harding spends way too much time contemplating whether kindergartners are having homosexual sex with each other.

He convinced millions of brain dead conservatives to label teachers, as pedophiles.

It would come as zero surprise to find out he's the pedophile.

And I'll bet dollars to donuts that back when this Florida state Representative was putting together the so-called 'don't say gay bill', that he cited religious beliefs, either his own personal beliefs or those that he felt the community espoused, when he defended the need for this law. However, it now appears that he may have forgotten about 8th Commandment, 'Thou shall not steal',

SBA loan fraud investigations in Florida

Harding's case is not the only high-profile investigation involving SBA loan fraud in the state.

Last week, former Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg was sentenced to 11 years in prison for six federal charges, including a similar scheme to defraud the SBA.

As part of a plea deal, Greenberg cooperated with federal authorities on other criminal investigations, including an investigation into COVID-19 relief fraud.

Greenberg's assistance has led to at least one other arrest.

In court, prosecutors and Greenberg's attorney indicated two other arrests related to the SBA fraud scheme would be coming soon.

However, we do not know whether Greenberg's assistance led to Harding's prosecution.

I'd expect a lot of SBA graft in FLA given the WWE connection of Trump's SBA Czar.
