Jeffrey Rosato, Aide To Barbara Boxer, Arrested In Child Pornography Sting
The Washington Post reports that a senior aide to Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) was fired from his post last week after he was charged with distributing and receiving child pornography:
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.
Before joining Boxer's staff, Rosato worked as an aide to then-Sen. Robert G. Torricelli (D-N.J.).
The FBI's investigation of Rosato and subsequent forensic analysis of his computer found that he had been using Google Hello, a photo-sharing service discontinued by the Internet giant earlier this year, allegedly to exchange pornographic images. Investigators were able to link Rosato to his online username by demanding records from Google and Comcast.
Last month, a former Senate aide, James Michael McHaney, was sentenced to three years in prison on a federal charge of possession of child pornography. McHaney, 28, was arrested last year in a sting and fired from his job in the office of Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.).
It's interesting how the Media is so silent in reporting on the Rosato story. Why, it's almost like the MSM is going out of its way to not report on Rosato.
I wasn't able to find a photograph of Rosato, but if you've found one, let me know. I want to include it with this story. Thanks!!
UPDATE: Here's an image of the perverted, Liberal pedophile Jeffrey Rosato:

I noticed some of the leftards commenting on the site are complete tools. Shocker.
It sure seems hard to find a image of him, unlike the photos of Mark Foley that were part of every story (print and MSM internet) about him.
But....see my next comment below:
Gee... he doens't look like a pervert. :o)
Is it just me, or does that photo of Jeffrey remind you of some perv haning around a playground? Ish!
$10 bucks says if convicted, he offs himself before being sent to prison. He looks like the kind that would do that.
