Senior Official in the State Department Arrested for Allegedly Soliciting Sex from a Minor

ZRosenThe Obama Administration already has a serious problem with integrity; the last scandal by a senior official in the Obama State Department is sure to cast an unwelcomed pall of distrust upon the administration that has so routinely lied and cheated. According to Fox News’ James Rosen, who’s targeting by the Obama Justice Department served as a separate scandal, the senior official allegedly sought underage sex from a minor online.

“Fairfax County Police officials say Daniel Rosen was arrested by a county detective about noon at his Washington, D.C. home after he allegedly sought to arrange sex with a minor. The detective, a female officer working in the county’s Child Exploitation Unit, had been posing as the minor in online exchanges with Rosen, police said.

Rosen, who is the director of counterterrorism programs and policy at the State Department, was arrested and transported to a D.C. jail and charged with one count of Use of a Communications Device to Solicit a Juvenile.

County police said typically, employers are notified of an arrest like this, and the State Department was indeed notified in this case. The department was moving to put Rosen on leave after the arrest.

Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said late Tuesday, “We are aware that a State Department employee has been arrested and charges have been issued.

‘For issues related to Department personnel and for privacy reasons, we are not able to confirm the identity of the individual or specific charges. His security clearance will be suspended and he will be put on administrative leave while this proceeds to its end through any judicial process. We are following standard procedure in this case.’”

Though, of course, the accused has the presumption of innocence until proven guilty, the last thing this administration needed, amidst countless scandals deriving from an apparent lack of standards or ethics, is a heinous sex scandal.
