Rep. Tony Gonzales decried some of his Republican colleagues in the House of Representatives as 'scumbags' with 'white hoods' as he directly targeted Rep. Matt Gaetz in an interview with CNN on Sunday. 

'It's an absolute honor to be in Congress, but I serve with some real scumbags,' Gonzales (R-TX) said on CNN's Face the Nation on Sunday. 'Look, Matt Gaetz, he paid minors to have sex with him at drug parties.' 

CNN host Dana Bash was taken aback by the accusation, reminding viewers that Gaetz had not been prosecuted by the allegations. 

'Wow. Okay,' she replied. 'I should say that the federal government did look into Matt Gaetz and those allegations and they decided not to prosecute.'
