U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) suspended the chief of staff of his Washington office Wednesday as law enforcement official searched the staffer's home on allegations of child pornography.

Alexander said he learned about the search and the allegations against his chief of staff, Ryan Loskarn, Wednesday morning, according to a statement on Alexander's official Senate website.

"I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned," Alexander said. "Based on this information, I immediately placed Mr. Loskarn on administrative leave without pay. The office is fully cooperating with the investigation.”

A National Journal profile of Loskarn in 2011 said he is a native of Sykesville, Md. and a graduate of Tulane University. He started working on Capitol Hill in 2000 and worked for a time as communications director for Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn. He told the Journal at the time that his hobbies included home improvement projects, reading and "trying to force myself to go to the gym."
