'Matt Gaetz Is A Pervert': Florida Rep accused of showing NUDE pics of women he slept with to fellow lawmakers
The Florida lawmaker, who is facing a justice dept sex-trafficking probe, reportedly showed the pictures and videos on House floor and bragged about his sexual conquests
Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz, who is currently battling sex-trafficking allegations, is facing more trouble. The 38-year-old allegedly showed his fellow lawmakers nude pictures and videos of women he said he had slept with and even boasted about his sexual conquests, a new bombshell report has said.
According to CNN that cited multiple sources, Gaetz earned a name in the Congress over his relationships with women and bragging about sexual encounters. The sources told the network that the embattled Congressman allegedly showed the photos and videos to other lawmakers, even on the House floor. The sources, which also included two persons who saw the materials, said Gaetz displayed the images on his phone and talked about having sex with her. One of the videos showed a naked woman with a hula hoop, one of the sources revealed. He even said “it was a point of pride”, according to one of the them that spoke to the network.
While it was yet to be established if the pictures have any connection with the justice department investigation against Gaetz, who was first elected to the Congress in 2016, it surely adds more to his critics’ ammunition. Gaetz has found himself in the middle of controversies during his days in the Congress with the ongoing justice department probe marking his biggest scandal yet. The New York Times reported earlier this week that the investigation was launched in the final months of the Donald Trump administration over whether he had a sexual relationship with an underage girl and paid her to give him company while travelling. Gaetz, along with his father Don, a former Florida Senate member, has denied the charges saying he was the victim of an extortion plot, something the FBI is investigating separately.
Gaetz is engaged to Ginger Luckey, a 26-year-old food analyst and the sister of Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey, who he met in early 2020. Last December, the two got engaged.
Prominent Republicans have largely chosen to remain silent on the issue of Gaetz showing objectionable pictures to his colleagues with sources saying the Florida lawmaker is not too popular among the GOP members because of his self-promotion fervent self-promotion on right-wing news platforms.

GOP lawmaker flayed for targeting Hunter Biden
Ohio GOP Representative Jim Jordan faced the wrath of the Twitterati when he tried to take a dig at Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden amid the Gaetz fiasco, asking: “Will Hunter Biden’s book be a best seller in China?” While one user responded to his tweet saying Hunter isn’t accused of fucking children, another said that best seller “could be but not as much as #MattGaetzIsAPervert tell all book..”
Comedian and Black Lives Matter activist Dante said in a tweet that he could think of at least 17 reasons why Gaetz should be removed from office.

Gaetz also found some sympathizers. Nick Adams, a conservative political commentator who got the endorsement of former president Trump, said over the NYT’s revelations against Gaetz to tweet: “I have a feeling Matt Gaetz could own the New York Times when this is all sorted out.”
Controversial GOP representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has also backed Gaetz. In a tweet posted earlier this week, she said: "Remember all the conspiracy theories and lies like Trump/Russia collusion and propaganda that the media has spread around. Take it from me rumors and headlines don’t equal truth. I stand with @mattgaetz". Her Florida counterpart thanked her for the support.
