Republican Lawmaker Accuses Matt Gaetz Of Creating A Game Where Politicians Got “Points” For Sleeping With Their Co-Workers

Well, that escalated rather quickly.

Quite frankly, the entirety of the Republican party under the reign of Donald Trump has fallen into a deplorable shamble of fuckwits and disgustingness that I’m honestly not sure if they’ll ever truly recover from — even once the days of “He Who Must Not Be Named” are long behind us.

However, a select few members of the GOP are just a bit extra disturbingly disgusting than the rest. And leading the pack of Alpha Beta Fuckboys Supreme is none other than Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz.

Gaetz has a nasty little habit of reminding the masses that he’s nothing more than a fratboy who hit a big enough lucky streak to land his ass in Congress by regularly picking fights with not only whatever Democrat he’s plucked out of his MAGA hat that day, but members of his own party, as well.

But it seems ol’ Matty may have bitten off more than he can chew with this last little feud of his he ignited with Republican State Rep. Chris Latvala after Latvala tweeted a photo of himself with the well-known Rev. Al Sharpton.

“It was an honor to meet @TheRevAl today,” Latvala captioned the image of himself and the Reverand during their meeting.

But instead of adhering to the general rule of, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all,” it seems Gaetz just simply couldn’t resist the urge to do a bit of mouth running when he came across the picture.

“Sharpton has called Cops ‘pigs;’ Whites ‘interlopers;’ Greeks ‘homos’ and Jews ‘diamond merchants. So that is pretty disgusting,” Gaetz shot at his fellow Republican Rep. in a Twitter response.

And while we’re sure Matt is pretty accustomed to people just brushing him off or simply taking his abuse, Latvala gave this spoiled, waste of a good trust fund, Congress brat a run for his money when he busted the Florida GOP Rep. out for something far worse than calling a cop a “pig.”

“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, Congressman,” Latvala shot back at Gaetz.

Back in 2013, Politico’s Marc Caputo actually reported on this little alleged game and even explained the point system:

Gaetz responded to the bust much the same way he does everything else he’s busted on — completely denying any knowledge of pretty much anything. Telling the Tampa Bay Times the he “had no idea what Chris was talking about.”

“I know Jack Latvala (had) to resign in disgrace over demanding sexual favors from lobbyists in exchange for appropriations. So, it was likely Chris projecting. I don’t start conversations with people on Twitter about their sex lives, especially Latvala’s,” Matt continued in an attack against his fellow GOP member to the local FL publication.

But, of course, once he was back behind the safety of his keyboard, Gaetz fired up once more, writing, “Just because I own you on Twitter, don’t confuse me for your daddy when it comes to abusing power for sex. Also, I missed the defense of Sharpton in your reply.”

Before it was all said and done, Latvala made sure he didn’t leave out that pesky little DUI of Gaetz’s. You know, the one where his mugshot is plastered on a Florida billboard?

Frankly, Matt, I’d make sure my closet was clean next time before picking another petty Twitter fight. Keep that shit up and someone’s going to air some dirt on you that’ll land you in the same hot water as one of the last Trump-sympathizers.
