Rep. Randy Hultgren (R-IL) has fired an aide after he was discovered having a sexual encounter with an underage boy last fall, Politico reports.

Sources told Politico Nick Provenzano was dismissed last weekend; according to police documents, he was investigated for public indecency after he was discovered, shirtless, with a 17-year-old boy in a car. Questioned by police, Provenzano insisted he was “hot.”

As Politico reports, the aide later told police, he “did not want to admit to anything, but stated that contact between him and [the teenager] was consensual in nature, that nobody was forced or coerced each other to engage in any acts they did not want to, and that he believed [the teenager] was eighteen (18) years old.”

No charges were filed.

Asked about the dismissal, Hultgren’s office said “Nick Provenzano is no longer with the office,” but declined to comment on why the aide was dismissed.

In interviews with CNN's Jeff Zeleny, longtime Florida Republicans who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 admitted they have no intention of helping him stay in office when they vote in November.

With polls showing the president trailing in the all-important Sunshine State, where seniors preferred Trump over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by 21 points last election, the president now finds himself bleeding support from a demographic he desperately needs if he wants to stay in the Oval Office after the first of the year.

According to retired banker John Dudley, 77, he voted for Trump last election and the president promptly "blew it."

A woman has inspired an "unmasked shopping event" in Washington state after she was confronted in a grocery store for not wearing a mask. The irate shopper also doesn't appear to be a fan of vaccinations or handwashing.

"It is a private business, would you like to see the law?" the employee, who identified herself as a manager, responds in the video.
