U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) suspended the chief of staff of his Washington office Wednesday as law enforcement official searched the staffer's home on allegations of child pornography.

Alexander said he learned about the search and the allegations against his chief of staff, Ryan Loskarn, Wednesday morning, according to a statement on Alexander's official Senate website.

He told the Journal at the time that his hobbies included home improvement projects, reading and "trying to force myself to go to the gym."
