Former Ryan campaign intern charged with nude picture blackmail scheme
Adam Savader, a former campaign intern to Paul Ryan and Newt Gingrich, was arrested and charged with "Internet extortion and cyber stalking," for an alleged scheme to blackmail women with naked pictures of themselves.
From the FBI's press release on the arrest:
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.
