Matt Gaetz Scandals And Controversies: Facts You Need

Tracking scandals and controversies involving Rep. Matt Gaetz, Republican from Florida.

Gaetz said that Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) was unable to do his job as a congressman because his son committed suicide: “I think that he takes that trauma and he associates it now with his work in the Congress to such an interwoven way that he’s unable to do the congressional experience outside of just the dungeon of that personal trauma.”


Gaetz said in a speech on the floor of the House that the solution to gun violence is a national “stand your ground” law or national concealed carry legislation.
