Law enforcement agents have searched the home of Sen. Lamar Alexander’s (R-TN) chief of staff as part of an investigation into child pornography.

“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,” the Republican senator said in a statement.

“I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned.”

Alexander said he immediately placed Loskarn on administrative leave without pay.

Politico reported that Loskarn also had worked for former Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ), Reps. Wally Herger (R-CA) and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), and the House Rules Committee.

He was named Alexander’s chief of staff in 2012.
