Gaetz criticized Shalala, calling her and several other Florida House Democrats who have supported moving forward with the inquiry hypocritical. He says they’re so caught up in investigations and impeachment that they’ve forgotten about their constituents.READ MORE: Hollywood PD Investigating After Body Found In Burning Car
