What a little sneaky and perverted weirdo!
Via NY Daily News:
These aren’t the family values Mitt Romney talked about. Adam Savader, 21, a former campaign intern for the Republican presidential candidate, was arrested in his Great Neck, L.I., home Tuesday by FBI agents and charged with cyber-stalking and blackmailing young women online, authorities said. Savader is a political science student at SUNY Farmingdale who’s interned for former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan as well as Romney. He’s charged with illegally obtaining n*de pictures of 15 women and threatening to make them public unless the women sent him more nude pictures of themselves. He preyed on women from Michigan, Washington, D.C., and Long Island, prosecutors said, many of whom he knew from high school.
In one instance, the criminal complaint said, Savader threatened to send n*ked pictures of one of his victims to the Republican National Committee if she didn’t comply with his demands. She sometimes got as many as eight threatening texts a day, the document said. Other texts to women are increasingly threatening and explicit, the complaint said, including one sent in October that said, “Do it from ur phone RIGHT NOW! I swear to God don’t be stupid. U don’t want every1 including your parents seeing your t–s (and) ass.”
He sent some of his victims links to photo-sharing websites where he had already posted their nude pictures without permission, according to the Department of Justice. Authorities were alerted to Savader’s alleged activities after a woman in Ann Arbor, Mich., told cops she was being blackmailed by a cyber-stalker who got into her AOL account and copied 12 nude pictures she’d taken for her then-boyfriend. She got her first anonymous text from “John Smith” last September, demanding she send him n*ked pictures. Savader then sent her a picture of her mother from Facebook to prove he could out her to her family if she didn’t comply, the complaint said. He also posted n*ked pictures of his victim on Photobucket to show her he meant business, the complaint said.
In October, the complaint alleges, “John Smith” sent the victim a text asking about her sexual preferences. He also said he was m*sturb*ting to her n*ked images, the document said. Savader’s lawyer said he’ll ask for his client to be released on bail Friday so Savader can go to Michigan and surrender to face the charges.
“I’ve known Adam his entire life and he has never behaved in a way that would lead me to believe these allegations are true,” said defense lawyer Michael Shoshnick.
