On September 17th, 2019 Republican Pennsylvania state congressman Mike Folmer was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography and criminal use of a communication facility.
Police traced a sexually explicit image of an underage girl to Folmer’s computer; Folmer had uploaded it to his Tumblr blog in December 2017. Two more such images were found on his cell phone. Folmer resigned from office the day after his arrest.
We previously received an alert to these events by way of a comment:
“I know you guys are looking for members of Civil Air Patrol who are democrats getting caught in crimes. This story won’t help you there, but our Republican Pennsylvania State Senator Mike Folmer has been charged today with sexual abuse of children, possession of child pornography and criminal use of a communication facility.”
Mike Folmer had been featured with a Civil Air Patrol cadet in October of 2017.
