Rep. Matt Gaetz’s future sister-in-law has reportedly taken to TikTok to describe the embattled Florida congressman as “weird and creepy” and said she was “unfortunately not surprised” he is under federal investigation for alleged sex crimes.
Roxanne Luckey, the sister of Gaetz’s fiancée, Ginger Luckey, slammed the Republican congressman in a series of three TikTok videos over his alleged treatment of young women, according to the Daily Beast.
On Monday, the 20-year-old alleged that Gaetz pressured an older man to court her when she was 19 — calling the move “weird and creepy” and claiming he yelled at her and her mom and went “full lawyer” when confronted by her, according to her TikTok video.
“I saw the character and type of person he is, and when everything came out about him, I honestly, unfortunately, was not surprised,” Roxanne, who worked as a White House intern last year, revealed on TikTok.
“As someone who has personally experienced a ton of creepy old politician men hitting on me when I was underage and experiencing sexual assault at that age by people of power, it’s very disheartening and I have zero tolerance of people like [Gaetz],” she said, adding that she was “tired of them getting away with this type of stuff.”
Roxanne said she decided to open up partly because of her interactions with powerful men and her belief that it is important to “hold people accountable to whatever extent we can.”
“There is so much more to the story and about what I know about Matt Gaetz. It is definitely a serious situation,” she said.

In a video she posted Sunday, she was seen dancing and lip-synching to Lana Del Ray’s “Jealous Girl” with a New York Times headline in the background reading “Matt Gaetz Is Said to Face Justice Dept. Inquiry Over Sex With an Underage Girl.”
“When a creepy old man tries to hit on you at the bar but your sisters [sic] engaged to a literal pedophile,” wrote Roxanne, who the following day apologized for using the term “pedophile” and changed her description to “ephebophile.”
The term refers to someone who is sexually attracted primarily to those in mid- to late adolescence — mostly ages 15 to 19.
She also said she heard “through the grapevine” that Gaetz “had a reputation of prowling after college girls when he’s a grown man, and to me that’s just kind of weird.”
“There’s two sides to every story and I acknowledge that, but this is what I experienced,” Roxanne added, acknowledging that “everything is hearsay.”
The Daily Beast said it has verified with a former Trump official that Roxanne had worked as an intern during the summer of 2020.
Ginger claimed to the Daily Beast that she and her sister have been estranged.
“Matt and I are enjoying our engagement and are deeply in love. My estranged sister is mentally unwell,” Ginger told the outlet in a text message.
“She has been in therapy for years and our family hopes that after receiving in-patient mental health treatment, she will overcome the tendency she has repeatedly shown to engage in destructive behavior,” she added.
Gaetz is allegedly being investigated by the feds over potentially violating federal sex-trafficking laws.
Joel Greenberg, a former Seminole County tax collector and close Gaetz ally, has already pleaded guilty to federal sex-trafficking charges and is reportedly cooperating with authorities.
