Donald Trump Delegate Charged With Child Porn, Illegal Gun and Explosives Possession

Caleb Bailey “will be replaced immediately,” Trump spokesperson says

Caleb Bailey, a Maryland man elected as a delegate for Donald Trump to the Republican National Convention, was indicted this week on charges of creation and possession of child pornography, illegal guns and explosives.

The indictment alleges that between March 2015 and January 2016, Bailey used a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct to produce child pornography, per CNN.

An ATF investigation that led to the charges began this past February, when a package shipped by Bailey ruptured open at a Maryland postal facility, revealing 119 rounds of .50 caliber cartridges with incendiary projectiles — regulated as explosives — and 200 rounds of spotting projectiles, also considered explosives.

During a subsequent search of his home and computer, authorities found the child pornography, as well as hundreds of illegal weapons — including machine guns — mostly in an underground bunker.

The Maryland Board of Elections lists Bailey as a District 5 delegate to the RNC supporting Trump, the cable news channel specified.

“We strongly condemn these allegations and leave it in the capable hands of law enforcement,” Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks said. “He will be replaced immediately.”
