Some other Representatives for Florida include John Mica, assigned to Oversight and Government, along with Transportation, Bill Posey, assigned to Financial Services and Science, Space and Technology, and Alan Grayson, also assigned to Science, Space and Technology, as well as Foreign Affairs.

Ander Crenshaw represents Florida's Fourth Congressional District and in the 113th Congress chairs the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Subcommittee.

Crenshaw describes the scandal as a waste of taxpayers' money.

Another Florida Representative praised for defending taxpayers is Ron DeSantis, who also advocates reforming Congress, supporting veterans and holding the Internal Revenue Service accountable.

Representing the other 17 districts as of 2015 are Daniel Webster, Richard Nugent, Gus M. Bilirakis, David Jolly, Kathy Castor, Dennis Ross, Vern Buchanan, Tom Rooney, Patrick Murphy, Curt Clawson, Alcee L. Hastings, Ted Deutch, Lois Frankel, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Frederica Wilson, Mario Diaz-Balart, Carlos Curbelo and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
