The New York Post had more on the story:
The mayor of a Maryland city was arrested Monday and charged with distributing revenge porn for allegedly posting nude photos of an ex-girlfriend on the internet, prosecutors said.
Andrew Bradshaw, the mayor of Cambridge, is accused of circulating the images on Reddit without the woman’s consent in April and May, according to the Office of the State Prosecutor.
The pictures were captioned with racial slurs and vulgar language, authorities said.
The 32-year-old elected official allegedly distributed the photos using several different Reddit accounts he created using variations of the victim’s name and birthdate.
The woman discovered the images in May and contacted the authorities — saying Bradshaw was the only recipient of the photos and she sent them when they were in a romantic relationship.

Court records state Andrew Bradshaw, who took office this past January, was arrested on Monday and had his first court appearance on the charges.

The state of Maryland has had a lot of corruption happening lately.
Two months ago a Maryland judge barricaded himself in his house and killed himself after federal agents discovered he allegedly sexually abused boys.
