Social media users are slamming GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz for posting a picture of his fiance that he took of her as she was sleeping, calling his behavior “typical of a sex predator.”
The Florida Republican, who is already under investigation at both the federal and state level for allegedly paying under-aged women for sex, thought that it was a good idea to humiliate his fiance Ginger Lockey by taking a selfie with her as she slept with her head back and her mouth wide open, and then posting the photo on Twitter.
“So blessed to be with the beautiful @LuckeyGinger,” he wrote as he shared the photo.
Stunned critics responded by trashing Gaetz over his “predatory behavior.”

Having Congressmen who behave like this and post these kinds of pictures make me rethink being a part of this group. This is so beneath dignity.

A selfie with an unconscious woman?
Nothing screams predator more than a selfie with an unconscious woman. Except maybe having duct tape, plastic, rope and a shovel in the picture too

Bill Cosby didn’t even take photos of his victims.

Your act of posting a pic of her captured while she was sleeping, without her permission, particularly in a position which she would not approve, is further testimony to your misogyny, objectification, crassness, oafishness, and complete lack of empathy.

This is such disgusting predatory behavior. I'm sure you have a gallery full of them.

It looks like you Bill Cosbyed her.
Frankly, no surprise there.

This photo will be a prime exhibit at your trial. Ginger clearly did not consent to this act.

You look high AF, and this image appears to be taken mid abduction. Also, where the eff is her mask?

Looks like Matt Gaetz just had a Bill Cosby moment. Clearly not his first selfie beside an unconscious woman.

Why do I feel like you’re used to being with women with this expression? pic.twitter.com/PhXYnUub8b

It's hard to believe that a so called Representative would post a picture of his fiance in that manner. The immaturity is unbelievable. @LuckeyGinger not so Luckey.

Wow, is she drugged? Is that part of the Venmo service?

This is after you slipped her the rohypnol I’m guessing? You are human garbage who needs to resign and be prosecuted.#ExpelGaetz
