House Ethics Committee gives update on Matt Gaetz probe

by ian

Congressman Matt Gaetz is still in hot water as the House Ethics Committee says it’s continuing its investigation into the Florida Republican’s alleged misconduct.

The committee said yesterday it’s done investigating whether Gaetz accepted bribes or converted campaign funds for personal use. But it’s still looking into much more serious allegations – including sexual misconduct and illicit drug use.

As you may remember, Gaetz was the congressman who led the ouster of Speaker Kevin McCarthy last October. McCarthy claims Gaetz wanted him out because of these ethics investigations.

Gaetz denies any wrongdoing and accused McCarthy’s allies of targeting him with “frivolous investigations.”
