image for Gaetz showed nude photos of women he said he'd slept with to lawmakers, sources tell CNN

Behind the scenes, Gaetz gained a reputation in Congress over his relationships with women and bragging about his sexual escapades to his colleagues, multiple sources told CNN.

Gaetz allegedly showed off to other lawmakers photos and videos of nude women he said he had slept with, the sources told CNN, including while on the House floor.

The sources, including two people directly shown the material, said Gaetz displayed the images of women on his phone and talked about having sex with them.

One of the videos showed a naked woman with a hula hoop, according to one source.

"It was a point of pride," one of the sources said of Gaetz.

There's no indication these pictures are connected to the DOJ investigation.

Gaetz, 38, who was elected to Congress in 2016, has been at the center of a number of controversies in his four-plus years in Congress. »

A Trump-era plan to cut food stamps is now off the table after the Biden administration said it is abandoning a previous plan to tighten work requirements for working-age adults without children.

Despite that increase, the Trump administration had told CBS MoneyWatch last year that it believed imposing tighter restrictions on food stamps was "the right approach.".

The restrictions on food stamps were pursued by former USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue, who had said that SNAP should provide "assistance through difficult times, not a way of life.". »
