Sen. Lamar Alexander's top D.C. aide under investigation for child porn

Posted by William Douglas on December 11, 2013 

Sen. Lamar Alexander's chief of staff, Ryan Loskarn, is under investigation for child pornography, the Tennessee Republican senator said Wednesday.

"I was just informed by the United States Senate legal counsel's office that law enforcement agents are conducting a search of the personal residence of Ryan Loskarn, the chief of staff of my Washington, D.C., office regarding allegations involving child pornography," Alexander said in a statement. "I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned. Based on this, I immediately placed Mr. Loskarn on administrative leave without pay. The office is fully cooperating with the investigation."
