Matt Gaetz Flame Wars With Republican State Rep

TALLAHASSEE and WASHINGTON -- A full-on Twitter flame war broke out between a Northwest Florida congressman, who used to serve in the state legislature, and a former colleague still in Tallahassee.

Pinellas state representative Chris Latvala posted a picture of himself with Rev. Al Sharpton, activist and former MSNBC host:

 

... which led to a response by Gaetz, who served in the state House with Latvala in 2015 and 2016:

 

Latvala answered with this...

 

Touchy territory, as Latvala's father, former State Senator Jack Latvala, was forced to resign in 2017 after six women accused him of sexually harassing them... Yes, Gaetz went there...

 

Latvala responded by aiming at one of Gaetz's sore spots... a 2008 DUI arrest...

 

... and this is how the exchange wrapped up...

 
 

We have not been able to independently verify any of these claims made on social media.
