WASHINGTON--A top aide of Republican Senator Lamar Alexander was arrested on Wednesday in connection with child pornography allegations, the U.S. Justice Department said.
“Jesse Ryan Loskarn, 35, of Washington, D.C., was arrested this afternoon by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service based on probable cause for possession and distribution of child pornography charges,” said Peter Carr, a Justice Department spokesman.
Loskarn, who has since been placed on unpaid leave as the Tennessee lawmaker's chief of staff, will appear at a hearing in federal court on Thursday.
