63-year-old senator arrested on child pornography charges

A Pennsylvania state senator arrested on charges of child pornography resigned Wednesday.

Sen. Michael Folmer, 63, was charged with sexual abuse of children, possession of child pornography, and criminal use of a communication facility after child pornography images were found on his phone, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced Tuesday.

On Wednesday, Gov. Tom Wolf called on Folmer, a Republican representing Lebanon County, to resign, calling the charges against the lawmaker “disgusting and beyond comprehension.”

Later on Wednesday, leaders of the state Senate said in a statement that Folmer resigned, NBC Philadelphia reported.

A criminal complaint on Folmer said that the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received a tip in February from the social media site Tumblr that a user had downloaded at least one image containing child pornography in late 2017.

An investigation began in March and eventually led to the home of Folmer.
