Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz — under investigation for potential sex crimes — voted against reauthorizing a human trafficking bill

Matt Gaetz, a Florida congressman who is currently under investigation for possibly having sex with a 17-year-old and then paying for her to travel over state lines, was one of 20 Republicans who voted “No” to reauthorize an anti-human trafficking law on Wednesday. The “No” votes ultimately didn’t matter, since the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act of 2022 was approved in the House for reauthorization with a 401 votes to 20.
