A Republican New Hampshire state representative was charged this week of attempting to lure a teenage girl for sex and possessing an “enormous amount” of drugs for the purpose of distribution.

The New Hampshire Union Leader reported that state Rep. Kyle Tasker (R) was taken into custody on Tuesday after being accused of trying to use Facebook Messenger to lure the 14-year-old girl with the intent to commit a sexual assault while armed.

Prosecutor Stephanie Ilberg-Lamm said that authorities received reports on Jan. 20 accusing Tasker of sexually harassing an underage girl.

An agent with Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force posing as a 14-year-old girl communicated with Tasker online, and then set up a Tuesday meeting on Lucas Pond Road in Nottingham. When agents arrived, they found Tasker with a loaded weapon.

“During the completion and execution of the search warrant, law enforcement personnel located an enormous amount of controlled substances and it is apparent from the way they were stored, the volume and the type that they were, these controlled or regulated drugs were there for a distribution operation,” Ilberg-Lamm explained.

Authorities also allegedly found other firearms strategically placed throughout the home.

Tasker was charged with four felonies, one count of certain uses of computer services prohibited and three counts of possession of controlled drugs with the Intent to distribute.

The 30-year-old lawmaker currently serves on the House Committee on Children and Family Law, which deals with the legal rights and protections of families and children.

New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn called on the lawmaker to “resign immediately.”

“The charges against Representative Tasker are troubling and disgusting,” she said.

Trasker was criticized in 2014 after he mocked sexual assault survivors on Facebook. Concord Patch pointed out that Tasker recently posted a suggestive photo of Donald Trump’s then-15-year-old daughter sitting on her father’s lap, with a caption reading, “#WhosYourDaddy.”

It's not the first time President Donald J. Trump has acted out his apparent Superman fixation at one of his superspreader rallies - and it certainly doesn't appear it will be his last.

“In several phone calls last weekend from the presidential suite at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Mr. Trump shared an idea he was considering: When he left the hospital, he wanted to appear frail at first when people saw him, according to people with knowledge of the conversations. But underneath his button-down dress shirt, he would wear a Superman T-shirt, which he would reveal as a symbol of strength when he ripped open the top layer,” The Times reported earlier this month.

"The FBI visited my house today," she revealed on Twitter.

"They arrested a man in Idaho on weapons charges who they believe was affiliated with white supremacist groups. They found my name on a list in his home, alongside others," she explained.

"This is why this President is so dangerous," she continued. "He is stoking fires he has no intention of controlling."

"I’m ok y’all, but this sh*t is not ok. Vote this muthaf*cka out," she suggested. "For real."

Did a maskless supporter of President Donald J. Trump really just flash a "white power" sign at his rally at The Villages in Florida?

The sign, with the thumb and index finger’s tips touching while the other three fingers are extended was traditionally known as the okay symbol.

Southern Poverty Law Center said the hand signal is "used ironically by a number of Trump supporters at far-right rallies. It’s been particularly prominent among far-right street protesters such as the Proud Boys and the Northwest-based Patriot Prayer, whose members have prominently displayed the sign in group photos and during street protests."
