Therefore, no reasonable player in politics can assert that U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander "should have known" that his Chief of Staff Ryan Loskarn was allegedly in possession of child pornography and distributing it. Moreover, the liberal media, given that the Senator is a conservative, should not orchestrate a pile on against him and his values.
As POLITICO reports, Loskarn had been arrested yesterday "by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service based on probable cause" of those alleged violations of the law. Here is the POLITICO article. The Senator did remove the employee from his payroll and promoted David Cleary to that Chief of Staff position. That means he acted responsibly and quickly. There should be no "guilt by association" here, even in the brutal game of politics.
