Verastigui has worked for the Senate Republican Conference until July 2020. And the investigation into his alleged offenses took place while he was still working for the GOP. And  recently he had been working at non-profit Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions, but was no longer employed there as of Saturday as reported by the Daily Beast


Speaking to the Daily Beast, one of the spokespersons from the non-profit said that; ‘The details of the allegations against Mr. Verastigui are tragic and shocking. ‘He is no longer employed by the organization and we are prepared to fully cooperate with law enforcement requests in this matter to any extent needed.’  


 According to court documents, Verastigui’s investigation began when Special agents with Homeland Security were investigating a group of about 18 people who they say were trading child porn. But the website name was not released ‘to protect the integrity of the ongoing investigation.’ 


Investigation also revealed that Verastigui allegedly went by the usernam ‘Landon‘ in the group chat and used the handle @somethingtaken, and he is said to have told another user that ‘babies’ were his ‘absolute favorite.’ 


“Well like I said, babies are some of my biggest turn-ons and beast,” he allegedly said in one of his direct messages. 

 Also he allegedly sent additional messages about wanting to look at ‘hardcore’ videos, responding ‘F**K YES!!!’ to a video he was sent of an adult sexually penetrating a child.
