Via American Action News:

Authorities arrested a Pennsylvania state senator yesterday on child porn charges, the Keystone State’s attorney general confirmed.

Per the New York Post:
 

Republican Sen. Mike Folmer, 63, was charged with sexual abuse of children, possession of child pornography, and criminal use of a communication facility after law enforcement found images of child pornography on Folmer’s cellphone when they executed a search warrant at his Lebanon home.

Officials said an investigation into the matter began after authorities received a tip that a user of the microblogging site Tumblr uploaded an image of child pornography to the site.

The investigation led officials to Folmer’s home.

“This defendant serves as a state Senator and was entrusted to honor and represent his community in the Pennsylvania Capitol,” said Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a statement announcing the charges against Folmer.

Folmer won re-election to his fourth term last November.
