GOP Florida Rep Accuses Matt Gaetz Of Creating Game In Which Lawmakers Got Points For Bedding Interns

Mediaite reports:

Florida state representative Chris Latvala accused Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) of creating a game “where members of the FL House got ‘points’ for sleeping with aides, interns, lobbyists, and married legislators,” Tuesday.

After Gaetz called out Latvala for posting a photograph with Al Sharpton on Twitter, Latvala replied, “And you created a game where members of the FL House got ‘points’ for sleeping with aides, interns, lobbyists, and married legislators. Hope DC is treating you well, Comgressman.”

The Tampa Bay Times reports:

Gaetz, in a Tuesday text to the Tampa Bay Times, said he had “no idea what Chris was talking about” before referencing Latvala’s father.

“I know Jack Latvala has to resign in disgrace over demanding sexual favors from lobbyists in exchange for appropriations, so it was likely Chris projecting,” Gaetz told the Times. “I don’t start conversations with people on Twitter about their sex lives. Especially Latvalas.”

Gaetz also referenced the sex and corruption scandal that resulted in the elder Latvala resigning from his state Senate seat in his online response to the younger Latvala.
