Adam Savader, a 21-year-old campaign intern for Mitt Romney's 2012 campaign was arrested in Great Neck, Long Island on Tuesday, charged with cyber-stalking and blackmailing young women online.

A former Romney campaign staffer spoke to BuzzFeed about working with Savader:

He just kind of, like, sauntered around the office a lot in the first floor… He kind of drew attention because he's like a pudgy nerdy kid who walks around the office and he'd always have the top two or three buttons undone on his shirt.

He had, like, a gold Star of David necklace popping out of his chest.
