A Pennsylvania state senator was busted Tuesday on child porn charges, the state Attorney General announced.

Republican Sen. Mike Folmer, 63, was charged with sexual abuse of children, possession of child pornography, and criminal use of a communication facility after law enforcement found images of child pornography on Folmer’s cellphone when they executed a search warrant at his Lebanon home.

Officials said an investigation into the matter began after authorities received a tip that a user of the microblogging site Tumblr uploaded an image of child pornography to the site.

The investigation led officials to Folmer’s home.

“This defendant serves as a state Senator and was entrusted to honor and represent his community in the Pennsylvania Capitol,” said Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a statement announcing the charges against Folmer.

Pennsylvania state Sen. Michael Folmer was arrested after allegedly uploading child pornography online, the state's attorney general announced Tuesday.

Folmer, a 63-year-old Republican who represents Lebanon, Dauphin and York counties, was taken into custody after he allegedly uploaded the illegal photos to social networking website Tumblr.

The website reported the photo upload to authorities, which led to an investigation at Folmer's home, a press release from Attorney General Josh Shapiro's office said. While there, investigators allegedly found photos of child porn on his phone.

Folmer allegedly told investigators he was working through "some personal problems" and admitted to receiving the child porn through his Tumblr account, PennLive.com reported, citing charging documents.

“This defendant serves as a state Senator and was entrusted to honor and represent his community in the Pennsylvania Capitol,” Shapiro said in a statement. “I will continue to say it — no one is above the law, no matter what position of power they hold. I will continue to work to protect children and hold those who abuse them accountable.”

Democratic Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf on Wednesday called for Folmer's resignation, calling the charges filed against him "disgusting and beyond comprehension."

“We elect leaders to serve as a voice for those who do not have the ability to advocate for their own needs, demanding that they will protect our children, families, and communities," Wolf said in a statement. "[The charges] show he has taken advantage of the trust and privilege afforded by the people of Pennsylvania. He should immediately resign.”

He represents my home county and lives in my hometown (Lebanon, PA). Before becoming a state senator he was very active in county politics. I tend to be automatically skeptical of male GOP politicians and “family values” espousers in general (it’s at a point where I assume all of them are raping kids or hooking up with male prostitutes), so I’m really not surprised by this news. But apparently loads of folks in my GOP-heavy hometown are genuinely shocked by the news!

Republicans: The Catholic priests of politics.

Republicans: Small government loves small children.

Republicans: We'll lower taxes AND the age of consent

Not really an apt comparison since anyone can donate to a political candidate. Someone elected to represent the people (very conservative people in this case) is held to a very high ethical standard. If this child abusing, child porn lover had donated 50k to a Republican candidate it would hardly be news. But since he is elected to promote 'family values' it is pretty big news.
