Hill aide resigns after ex-porn star tweets photo

(CNN) – The chief of staff to Rep. Steve Stivers stepped down after a former porn star tweeted an explicit photo of him.

Adam Kuhn, an aide to the Ohio Republican congressman, resigned Tuesday after the actress posted the picture, which has since been deleted, to Kuhn's Twitter account.

Politico first reported the development.

"Congressman Stivers accepted Adam Kuhn's resignation today," said Stivers spokeswoman Courtney Whetstone in a statement. "The office is not commenting on his personal life."

Kuhn apologized for the relationship with the actress, Jennifer Roubenes Allbaugh, who he said "attacked" him via the social media site over the weekend.

“Over the weekend I was the victim of an attack on twitter from a woman I had a relationship with in my personal life. I realize and apologize that I had used poor judgment in my personal life regarding this relationship," Kuhn said in a statement to CNN, adding that Allbaugh has reached out to him to apologize.

According to Politico, Allbaugh was distraught that Kuhn ended the relationship and sought revenge by sending out a picture of his penis.

Allbaugh has since deleted her Twitter account.

    Those family value people are really dirty deep down, aren't they?
    Before the haters start on the Dems. At least the Democrats, at least not publicly, don't tout the bible as their savior and a book of fantasy they need to follow to the letter or they will burn in Hades.
