Gustavo "Gus" A. Barreiro (July 12, 1959 – August 16, 2019) was a Republican politician from Florida. He served four terms in the Florida House of Representatives, representing the 107th district in Miami-Dade County from 1998 to 2006. His district encompassed parts of Miami, Miami Beach, and Coral Gables.[2][3]

In 2012, Barreiro ran for the Florida House again, but lost the Republican primary in the 112th district to Alex Díaz de la Portilla, 59 to 41%.[4][5] He died after a heart attack in 2019.[1]

Controversy[edit]

Barreiro was terminated from his position as director of residential facilities for the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice in 2009 after an investigation revealed that he had downloaded 300 to 400 sexually explicit adult porn images onto his state-issued laptop. He also used his computer to log on to the sex hookup site adultfriendfinders.com using the screen name "CubanCigar107." Barreiro claimed he was set up.[6][7][8]
