GOP lawmaker accuses Rep. Matt Gaetz of creating 'a game' where politicians get 'points' for sleepin

Source: Raw Story

In Florida politics, Rep. Matt Gaetz is not only known for getting into bitter arguments with Democrats — he is also known for his feuds with fellow Republicans. And this week, things turned ugly after Gaetz attacked Republican State Rep. Chris Latvala for tweeting a photo of him meeting with the Rev. Al Sharpton.

Monday on Twitter, Latvala wrote, “It was an honor to meet @TheRevAl today.” And when Gaetz (who serves in the U.S. House of Representatives via Florida’s 1st Congressional District) saw the tweet and the photo of Latvala with Sharpton — who hosts “Politics Nation” on MSNBC — the 37-year-old far-right Republican responded, “Sharpton has called Cops ‘pigs;’ Whites ‘interlopers;’ Greeks ‘homos’ and Jews ‘diamond merchants. So that is pretty disgusting.”

Latvala (the 38-year-old son of former Florida State Sen. Jack Latvala, now 68) responded by accusing Gaetz of inventing a sleazy game for Florida legislators that included a sexual scoring system. In 2013, Politico’s Marc Caputo reported that according to the rules of the alleged game, legislators received one point for sleeping with a lobbyist, two points for sleeping with legislative staff, three points for sleeping with another legislator and six points for sleeping with a married legislator.

1. I find this totally believable.

Gaetz is a sophomoric lowlife.

6. Money and/or power. Thats how MANY men get women. Look at Trump

Would he have been with the women he's been with if he worked at kroger stocking shelves? NO
And they dont even care that the women dont actually like them. That would bug the hell out of me, but it matters not to these guys

7. Did Gaetz run on "family values?"

I can't bring myself to do an online search regarding this ahole but wanna bet he represented himself as some sort of Xtian values promoter?
