U.S. Congressman Steve Stivers’ office confirms Chief of Staff Adam Kuhn resigned Tuesday afternoon.

Stivers’ spokeswoman Courtney Whetstone said in an email the office is not commenting on Kuhn’s personal life.

In a statement to The Associated Press, Kuhn said he was the victim of an attack on Twitter from a woman with whom he had a personal relationship.

In the last week, the woman tweeted at least one photo of Kuhn’s penis to Stivers’ Twitter account.

“I realize and apologize that I had used poor judgment in my personal life regarding this relationship,” he said.

Kuhn is a long-time Stivers aide, rising to Chief of Staff last year. Legislative records indicate Kuhn made $130,000 in 2013.

  • Let Stivers Know

    I think everyone should know that Sen Stivers office as well as the Ohio Republican Party were contacted 2 years ago regarding other improprieties of Mr Kuhn to no avail. Nor were calls regarding a Public Records Request never answered. Instead Mr. Kuhn was promoted and paid by Ohio taxpayers for such improprieties which occurred on the job. All the while Mr. Stivers is fully aware of such acts yet running on a platform of family values. Mr Kuhn is not a victim in this case but many others are as well as the taxpayers of the Great State of Ohio!
