A U.S. Senate aide was arrested Friday after allegedly arranging a lunchtime sexual encounter with a teenage boy, according to federal court records. James McHaney, 28, was nabbed by FBI agents after he arranged the afternoon liaison via a "cooperating witness" working with investigators.
The website reports that until his arrest Friday, McHaney was working as a scheduler for Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Washington.
Cantwell's office just released this statement from Chief of Staff Michael Meehan:
Late Friday afternoon the FBI informed our office that a Senate employee was arrested. The employee was immediately fired. Our office has and will continue to fully cooperate with the ongoing federal criminal investigation. Senator Cantwell has zero tolerance for crimes against children.
McHaney was at work while chatting on-line with the confidential witness who was cooperating with the FBI.
