Hardly A Shocker: Trump Delegate Indicted On Child Porn Charges

Charges brought to a Donald Trump delegate in Maryland continue the pattern of his delegates emerging as extremely unsavory individuals.

Donald Trump has had his fair share of issues with delegates already—one of his California delegates is a proud white nationalist—but this newest development truly speaks to the sort of individuals who are die-hard Trump supporters.

Caleb Andrew Bailey, a 30-year-old Trump delegate from Waldorf, Maryland, was indicted by the Department of Justice on Thursday on charges of “using a minor to make child pornography, illegal possession of a machine gun and illegal transport of explosives,” according to the Huffington Post.

The release from the U.S. Justice Department details that in February, Bailey was caught attempting to send explosives and weapons via postal mail to Wisconsin, which alerted ATF agents. 

They later found and seized a machine gun in his home and discovered that “from March 2015 to January 2016, Bailey attempted to use and did use a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct to produce child pornography.” He also possessed child pornography.

Trump previously tried to claim that the inclusion of a white supremacist as a California delegate was simply a “database error,” but there’s no way to weasel his way out of this one.

Trump’s delegates are indicative of the campaign he has run: hateful, offensive, derogatory, and unrepresentative of Americans.

Bailey won’t be serving as delegate for Trump anytime soon (he’ll be serving jail time instead), but it begs the question: How many other Trump delegates have similarly grotesque backgrounds?
