Unfortunately, it looks like it is Paul Ryan’s former intern (and former Newt Gingrich staffer) named in an FBI press release today.
According to the affidavit, from May 2012 through February 2013, Adam Paul Savader sent anonymous text messages using Google Voice numbers to 15 women stating that he had nude photographs of the women and threatening to distribute the nude photographs to the women’s friends and family members unless the women sent him more nude photographs of themselves. Savader sent some of the victims links to a photo-sharing website where nude pictures of the victims had been posted.
Blogger Adam Steinbaugh writes:
He allegedly threatened to send the photos to their family members, sorority sisters, and the Republican National Committee, telling one that everyone in “D.C.” would see the nude photos. The unidentified victims apparently attended the same college as Savader.
In its press release, the FBI says that Savader is in custody. His most recent Twitter post was made yesterday.
Would a little Newt Gingrich humor be appropriate here?
