(Washington, D.C.) U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) says the home of his Chief of Staff is being searched. Alexander says the search is related to allegations involving child pornography with Ryan Loskarn who has been his COS since November of 2011. In a statement, Alexander said he is, stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned. Based on this information, I immediately placed Mr. Loskarn on administrative leave without pay. The office is fully cooperating with the investigation.
