After Senate Democrats requested an emergency ruling from the state Supreme Court to force the House to reconvene in Tallahassee, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, ignited a social media fight, presumably related to misspellings in the document filed with the court.

In a tweet this afternoon, Gaetz singled out Democratic Leader Arthenia Joyner and Sen. Dwight Bullard, both of whom are black.
