At just 21, Adam Savader has already served as Paul Ryan’s “sole intern on ’s campaign and a campaign staffer,” as he put it on Twitter. Now that impressive resume is marred with an arrest by the FBI on charges of cyber-stalking and blackmailing. The Long Island college student allegedly obtained nude photos from fifteen women’s hacked online accounts, then said he’d make them public if they didn’t send more naked pictures. Most of the threats mentioned family members, but one promised to report the young woman’s sexting to her parents, her sorority, and the Republican National Committee.
