Adam Paul Savader, the 21-year-old from Great Neck accused of internet extortion and cyberstalking 15 women by the FBI, also happens to have been Paul Ryan's "sole intern" during Mitt Romney's failed presidential bid.
Savader, who describes himself as an "American Patriot. Reagan Republican" on his Twitter bio, also proudly boasts another GOP status symbol: he worked on Newt Gingrich's failed campaign as well.
An affidavit states that 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."
The IP address used to contact Victims 1 through 10 was registered to a home in Quincy, Massachusetts, where Savader lived when the Google Voice account was created.
A tipster sent us the image of Savader, above, from his Facebook page, noting, "The home in Quincy, Mass is the house he lived in while working as an intern on the campaign, specifically in the Ryan VP Campaign's office. So, he was doing the stalking/hacking while working for the campaign."
Update: A commenter who claims to have attended George Washington University with Savader says that "during [Savader's] stint on the Gingrich campaign in 2011, he had the job of dressing up as Newt's mascot, Ellis the Elephant."
