Complaint Filed In Florida House Alleges “Gay” GOP Rep Pressured Two Staffers To Let Him “Bottom” For Them
Florida Politics reports:
A formal sexual harassment complaint against Rep. Fabián Basabe has now been filed with the House. Two male staffers, Nicolas Frevola and Jacob Cutbirth, detailed many of the accusations already described in a lawsuit filed against Basabe in Leon County. Those include accusations the Miami Beach Republican told both men he wanted to have anal sex with them, and expressed he wanted to be a “bottom” while they could be “tops.”
In the new complaint Cutbirth said on Dec. 15, he drove Basabe to a hotel after an event, and the lawmaker groped and tried to kiss the intern. The complaint says the same evening, Basabe “attempted to entice Cutbirth to come up to his hotel room with him to have sex.” Cutbirth refused. The complaint also said Basabe encouraged Cutbirth to break up with his fiancée, now his wife, to explore sex with men.

My first report on the separate sexual harassment lawsuit filed by the two staffers is here.
Basabe first appeared here in May 2023 when he was heckled at Miami Beach Pride for voting for the “Don’t Say Gay” bill despite campaigning as an openly gay man and supporter of LGBTQ rights.
According to the Miami New Times, Basabe has in fact been married to a clothing heiress since 2005. Fashioning himself of a nightlife high roller, also in 2005 he appeared in the short-lived reality series Filthy Rich: Cattle Drivealongside Kourtney Kardashian.
That same year the New York Post reported that he was ejected from a Hamptons nightclub after allegedly hurling the N-word at black bouncers. The “controversies” section of his Wikipedia entry is really something and includes multiple arrests on a range of charges.
