2012 GOP Presidential Campaign Intern Arrested in Bizarre Federal Cyberstalking Case

In what appears to be a truly bizarre coda to the 2012 presidential election, a former aide to Rep. Paul Ryan and campaign staffer to Speaker Newt Gingrich has been arrested and charged with Internet extortion and cyberstalking. Adam Savader, 21, got some unwanted attention from GOP activists on blogs and Twitter as his dirty laundry was discovered. Oh, and was arrested by the FBI yesterday.

A 21-year-old Great Neck, New York man was charged in a criminal complaint in the Eastern District of Michigan with Internet extortion and cyber stalking, announced United States Attorney Barbara L. McQuade.
Joining in the announcement were Special Agent in Charge Robert D. Foley, III, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Chief John Seto, Ann Arbor Police Department.
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.
The case was brought to the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation by detectives from the Ann Arbor Police Department, who received a complaint from a victim stating that she had received threatening messages from a person who had illegally obtained nude photographs of her from her e-mail account. Detectives with the Ann Arbor P.D. partnered with FBI agents to investigate the case and together identified 15 victims in Detroit; Washington, D.C.; and Long Island, New York.
If convicted on these charges, Savader faces a maximum penalty of five years’ imprisonment.
Savader is currently in federal custody in New York awaiting removal to Michigan.
