Former Chris Christie aide charged with child sex abuse

Former Chris Christie aide charged with child sex abuse

A former aide to Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie has been arrested after he allegedly received a photo of a six-year-old girl being sexually abused.

Kevin Tomafsky, 41, was arrested on 15 August after a grand jury indicted him in July on multiple child sex abuse charges, according to news reports.

Mr Tomafsky has been under investigation since October 2022, according toThe New Jersey Globe, after Snapchat reported an incident of alleged child sex abuse being uploaded on the platform to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

A judge authorized a search warrant for the house where Mr Tomafsky lives with his mother.

During the search last December, officers found fewer than 1,000 items of child sex abuse material on devices belonging to Mr Tomafsky.

One other man – believed to be the victim’s father – has also been charged.

British Writer Pens The Best Description Of Trump I've Read

British Writer Pens The Best Description Of Trump I’ve Read

“Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?” Nate White, an articulate and witty writer from England wrote the following response:

A few things spring to mind. Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem. For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace – all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed. So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.

Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable, he has never once said anything wry, witty or even faintly amusing – not once, ever. I don’t say that rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not once, not ever. And that fact is particularly disturbing to the British sensibility – for us, to lack humour is almost inhuman. But with Trump, it’s a fact. He doesn’t even seem to understand what a joke is – his idea of a joke is a crass comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of cruelty.
