US Capitol Police: No Charges In Gay Senate Sex Tape

“After consulting with federal and local prosecutors, as well as doing a comprehensive investigation and review of possible charges, it was determined that — despite a likely violation of Congressional policy — there is currently no evidence that a crime was committed.

“Although the hearing room was not open to the public at the time, the Congressional staffer involved had access to the room. The two people of interest were not cooperative, nor were the elements of any of the possible crimes met.

“The Congressional staffer, who has since resigned from his job, exercised his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent and refused to talk to us.

“Our investigators are willing to review new evidence should any come to light.” – Capitol Police, in a statement about the gay sex tape leaked in December and which involved a staffer for Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin (photo above).
