Republican Representative Matt Gaetz took to the House floor Monday to speak about the importance of holding sex offenders accountable for their crimes.

Let that sink in for a second.Gaetz, of course, is currently at the center of an investigation into child sex trafficking, bribery and obstruction of justice.But that didn’t stop him from being one of the few Republicans to support a bill that would end mandatory arbitration for workplace sexual harassment cases.“Here is the question presented: Should sexual harassers who work for big businesses get to pick their juries in advance?” Gaetz said. “I believe that the populist, nationalist right approach is to believe that the Article 3 courts, that we have set up for any and all, function as the proper venue.

But for tens of millions of American workers, that courthouse door is locked!”He added that corporations’ advantage in arbitration hearings “shouldn’t be a reason that someone is more likely to have to endure sexual harassment in the workplace, or more likely, to evade consequence as a result of predatory behavior.”Earlier this year, Gaetz’s ex-girlfriend testified before a federal grand jury, leading many to believe the Department of Justice is getting close to indicting him.Multiple sources claim Gaetz’s ex tagged along with him and his alleged 17-year-old lover on a trip to the Bahamas in 2018.

CBS News also reports that investigators are looking into whether the embattled lawmaker obstructed justice when he had a secret phone call with the ex and another woman.In January, Florida radio host “Big Joe” Ellicott issued a guilty plea to “pay bribes and kickbacks,” and also to illegally selling Adderall.
