Luke Ball, the Communications Director for GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz’s office resigned “out of principle” after his employer faced a federal investigation for sexual misconduct and allegedly raping a minor.
A person familiar with the matter reportedly disclosed the information to NBCNews Capitol Hill Correspondent Leigh Ann Caldwell.
Ball has not yet made a formal statement regarding his resignation.
Ball was recently asked to show the travel records of Gaetz during a Washington Post fact-checking investigation but failed to do so or give an explanation.
