Maryland mayor charged with posting revenge porn on Reddit – New York Post

The mayor of a Maryland city was arrested Monday and charged with distributing revenge porn for allegedly posting nude photos of an ex-girlfriend on the internet, prosecutors said.

Andrew Bradshaw, the mayor of Cambridge, is accused of circulating the images on Reddit without the woman’s consent in April and May, according to the Office of the State Prosecutor.

The pictures were captioned with racial slurs and vulgar language, authorities said.

The 32-year-old elected official allegedly distributed the photos using several different Reddit accounts he created using variations of the victim’s name and birthdate.

The woman discovered the images in May and contacted the authorities — saying Bradshaw was the only recipient of the photos and she sent them when they were in a romantic relationship.

She said they were no longer in a relationship when the photos were found.

Bradshaw was charged with 50 counts of distributing revenge porn. He was released on his own recognizance at a Monday court appearance.

The suspect was Cambridge’s youngest mayor in history when he took office in January, according to a biography on the city’s website.
