Aide to Senator Barbara Boxer Jeffrey P. Rosato Charged in Child Pornography Sting
Jeffrey P. Rosato, a senior aid to California Democratic US Senator Barbara Boxer has been fired from his position and charged with distributing and receiving child pornography. According to the FBI affidavit, an unnamed person distributed more than 600 files containing graphic images and movies of child pornography to an undercover detective who was believed to be a 13-year-old boy.
Jeffrey P. Rosato, an aide to Boxer and a senior policy adviser on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, was arrested last Friday, the same day he was fired from Boxer’s office, and charged with one count each of receipt and distribution of child pornography. He appeared in U.S. District Court in Alexandria on Wednesday and was released on his own recognizance, but he is forbidden to have access to children or computers.
According to an FBI affidavit, an unnamed person “distributed more than 600 files containing graphic images and movies of child pornography to an undercover detective that [the person] believed was a 13-year-old boy” over the course of more than 15 online chats during a three-week period in January. In that person’s computer, the FBI found information suggesting the person had exchanged pornography with Rosato.
Investigators also found pornographic photos and movies of children on Rosato’s laptop computer during a Nov. 4 search of his Alexandria home, according to the affidavit. “Many of the images and videos depict prepubescent boys engaged in sexual acts,” it said.
There seems to be a disturbing trend in the US Senate as last month, a former aide for Senator Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), James Michael McHaney, was caught in a sting sentenced to three years in prison on a federal charge of possession of child pornography.

I’m sure that tho Billy has not renounced his
hatred for America underscored with bombs
and stuff, that he would be great fiddling with
curriculum choices for our school children.
Saul Alinsky’s influence needs to be ‘redistributed’
to our youthful future leaders. BO himself may agree
with that concept.
Disgusting! Lock them all up and throw away the key
so didn’t ms. boxer have this aide vetted? funny how the government keeps better track of the emails going in & out of military hospitals than they do from the senate. i wonder how much influence over boxer’s work this aide had?
Not only receiving, but also distributing … seems like there’s an opportunity to pursue this.
But instead, he doesn’t even have to post bail.
I guess that’s because, working for someone in Congress, he’s automatically in the ranks of those who deserve special privileges.
Or who get them, anyway.
I wonder if Barbara was watching them with him, wouldn’t surprise me..
