A man who worked as a researcher for President Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity was arrested last week after police said they found child pornography on his cellphone, according to The Washington Post.
Ronald Williams II, 37, who is from Maryland, was charged with 11 counts of possession and distribution of child pornography.
The Maryland State Police department’s task force on Internet crimes against children raided his home after they were tipped off by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
State police told the Post that a preliminary forensic look at Williams’s cellphone found “multiple files of child pornography.”
A Trump administration official told the Post that Williams was fired this week.
Trump launched the voter fraud commission after making unfounded claims that millions of fraudulently cast ballots cost him the popular vote in last year’s election against Democrat Hillary Clinton.
The commission is chaired by Vice President Pence and co-chaired by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R).
