The "No" votes ultimately didn't matter, since the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act of 2022 was approved in the House for reauthorization with a 401 votes to 20.
The act, which has been renewed multiple times since its inception with very little opposition, focuses on severe penalties for perpetrators, particularly involving sex trafficking, and also bolsters support services for victims.
The investigation into Gaetz began back in 2020, and his former "wingman" and former Seminole County Tax Collector, Joel Greenberg, has already plead guilty on six charges of sex tracking.
Currently, the District 1 Panhandle Republican has not been charged with any crimes. But it's worth pointing out that Greenberg had his sentencing delayed in order to further the investigation into Gaetz, according to Politico.
This actually isn't the first time Gaetz has voted against a sex trafficking-related measure. In 2017, Gaetz was the only "No" vote on a bipartisan human-trafficking bill that passed unanimously through the U.S. Senate and House by a count of 418 to 1.
