UPDATE III:  Some here have asked for major-news outlet story links, for veracity, I guess.

Here you go:

CBS

WSJ

NYDN

Detroit Free Press

ABC


UPDATE II:  Here's the actual complaint filed in United States District Court (he's sicker than I thought).  Looks like he texted to the victim that he could reach her Mom's Facebook account, and that he was masturbating to the photos of the victim.  AND contacted the boyfriend of at least one of the victims.


UPDATE:  It gets worse.  Looks like pictures weren't the only things he was after.  I think, given enough time, he would have demanded actual sex.


From SLATE:

In one case he allegedly goaded a subject with "a series of personal questions, relating to sexual preferences, positions, etc," holding out the nude photos as bait.

What do Newt Gingrich, Paul Ryan, and Mitt Romney have in common?

They have in common, one Adam Savader.

Who is Adam Savader, you ask?  Well, he's the very latest, fresh off the indictment list, of "family values" Republicanism.  

Adam Savader has worked for all three human-wannabes listed in my title.  And, he was arrested today (let's just say that he has a little thing for the girl-nextdoor).

On Twitter, Savader describes himself as "Formerly @PRyan's sole intern on @MittRomney's campaign and a @newtgingrich campaign staffer." His Twitter avatar is a picture of him with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI).

Adam Savader, 21, who is also a former intern of Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign, contacted 15 victims between May 2012 and February 2013, according to affidavit by FBI Special Agent Michael T. Garland. Savader would allegedly contact his victims via text message from a Google Voice number, telling them he had nude pictures and threatening to send them to their parents or post them online unless they sent him more.

Many of the victims, some of which have not been identified, either went to the same college as Savader or grew up in the same area as Savader, who is from Great Neck, New York.



Assuming they got the right guy, Adam can now join a very long list of GOP up-and-cummers (sorry) who have cut short their careers with dank proclivities of a sexual nature.
Several of the victims reported that their Gmail accounts had been compromised prior to receiving the threatening messages.

In another example, Victim 4 received the following text message from a Google Voice number on Oct. 30, 2012: "WAIT! Listen to me. If we don't have a deal I will send the pictures to those people. Is that what u want? remember what's at stake. do u want ur family and everyone in DC to see ur tits? Just agree to e-mail me a pic of u in a bra."



One TPM commenter named AlphaDad hit the nailio on the headio with this tart retort:
The thing that makes this really perverse is that he could get nude pictures galore, legally, for free, anytime he wanted to on the internet. What turned his crank was extorting the photos from these young women. He took pleasure in their fear and shame, in his ability to intimidate and manipulate them. It wasn't about the photos. This is one sick bastard.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
