18. I think you have touched on an important point

In any culture, any society, there are those who would use their political/economic power for taking sexual conquests that they are not entitled to (usually with minors or unconsented adults.) Meanwhile there are others who refuse to see what is happening, or they see it but decide it's in their best interest to pretend it's not happening.

The measure of the culture or society is in how it protects or fails to protect the weakest who are being preyed upon. Examples would be Catholic priests, athletic and Olympic trainers, southern slave owners, unscrupulous teachers.

Whether Matt Gaetz used his political power for sexual conquest is perhaps beside the point. Apparently he was already doing it when he didn't have political power.
