Sen. Lamar Alexander's Chief of Staff Ryan Loskarn is under an investigation involving child pornography.

A statement from Alexander:

“I was just informed by the United States Senate legal counsel’s office that law enforcement agents are conducting a search of the personal residence of Ryan Loskarn, the chief of staff of my Washington, D.C., office regarding allegations involving child pornography. I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned. Based on this information, I immediately placed Mr. Loskarn on administrative leave without pay. The office is fully cooperating with the investigation.”

More as it develops.

Update (1:15 p.m.): Politico reports that Loskarn was taken from his home in handcuffs a little more than an hour ago. Citing a "Senate source, they report that "Agents put several bags of evidence and a computer in a postal inspector SUV. Agents also went to Alexander’s Senate office and sought access to Loskarn’s work computer."

Along with working under Alexander in the senator's office and at the Senate Republican Conference, Loskarn has also worked for Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn.
