Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., is at the center of an investigation over sex trafficking allegations, which has thrust his fiancée Ginger Luckey into the spotlight. Amid the allegations, there have been no public comments from Luckey, who recently has been the subject of several profiles. 

The 26-year-old became engaged to Gaetz in December 2020, nine months after they met, according to reports. Luckey is the sister of Palmer Luckey, founder of Oculus VR, which he sold to Facebook in 2014 for around $2 billion.

She has worked since June 2020 as a sales analyst at Apeel, a company dedicated to reducing food waste, according to her LinkedIn page. She grew up in Santa Barbara, California.

In 2016, Luckey graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara, with a degree in economics and accounting. She is currently enrolled in online courses at Harvard Business School.

Luckey also runs a food account on Instagram, as well as a fitness page. Although her personal and fitness IG accounts are private, her food page, “Ginge Eats,” is public and features food and drinks from places she has visited. The account has over 1,200 followers.

Luckey and Gaetz are still in the process of planning their wedding. But she previously told the Daily Mail they are “flexible” about wedding planning and could get married in the near future or in a couple of years.

Gaetz is facing serious legal issues. The Justice Department launched an investigation into Gaetz last week to determine if he had a relationship with a woman that started when she was a minor, according to reports.

The investigation will also examine whether his relationships with other young women violated prostitution and sex trafficking laws. CNN reported that he had shown pictures of naked women he claimed to have slept to House colleagues.

Gaetz, 38, who was elected to Congress in 2016, has denied all accusations made against him.
