Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Florida), now embroiled in a Justice Department investigation to determine if he had a relationship with a 17-year-old girl, showed naked pictures of women he claims to have slept with to colleagues in Congress.

Gaetz allegedly showed several pictures to fellow lawmakers of women he said he has slept with, even showing the pictures on the House floor. According to CNN, two sources who were directly shown pictures by Gaetz explain that the Florida representative showed the images and subsequently bragged about having sex with the women. One video showed a naked women with a hula hoop.

There is no indication Gaetz’s pictures will be part of his Justice Department investigation, but Gaetz has since said that “no part of the allegations against me are true,” and claimed that he and his family are victims of extortion by a former Justice Department official.

“Over the past several weeks my family and I have been victims of an organized criminal extortion involving a former DOJ official seeking $25 million while threatening to smear my name. We have been cooperating with federal authorities in this matter and my father has even been wearing a wire at the FBI’s direction to catch these criminals,” said Gaetz in a statement which has been shrugged off by the former DOJ official.
