Gaetz investigated Gaetz was also under investigation by the U.S. Justice Department for allegations that he had sex with a 17-year-old girl and paid for her to travel with him. The DOJ ended the investigation in February 2023 and did not bring charges against Gaetz.

The House Ethics Committee said on Tuesday that it is also dropping its investigation into a series of other allegations against Gaetz. It said it “will take no further action at this time on the allegations that he may have shared inappropriate images or videos on the House floor, misused state identification records, converted campaign funds to personal use, and/or accepted a bribe or improper gratuity

When reached for comment, Gaetz’s office directed USA TODAY to a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, from the congressman on Monday blaming former Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., for the investigation.

Gaetz led an effort to oust McCarthy from the speakership last fall. McCarthy resigned from Congress months later.
