The mayor of a small city in Maryland today was arrested and charged with 50 counts of distributing revenge porn on Reddit, the Maryland state prosecutor’s office announced.

Cambridge Mayor Andrew Bradshaw, 32, “created multiple accounts on the public Internet forum ‘Reddit,’ employing public usernames consisting of permutations of the name and birthdate of a person, identified as Victim-1, who had a past romantic relationship with Mr. Bradshaw,” the announcement said. Bradshaw allegedly “posted nude photographs of Victim-1, captioned with racial slurs and sexually explicit language, on those ‘Reddit’ accounts and various ‘Subreddit’ forums that were related to sexual activity, humiliation, degradation, race, and other topics.”

Each of the 50 counts carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison and a fine of $5,000. Police had executed a search and seizure warrant at the mayor’s office in City Hall on August 4.
