The U.S. Capitol police decided that they won’t bring charges against the former Congressional staffer and his lover filming the notorious Senate sex tape.

Staffer behind gay Senate sex tape

In December, The Daily Caller obtained video footage of two men having a naked romp on the dias of a hearing room in the Hart Senate Office Building.

The video was “shared in a private group for gay men in politics,” then leaked to the news outlet. Shortly after, The Spectator in a published a report revealing that the man on all fours was Democrat Senator Ben Cardin’s aid.

After the scandal broke, Cardin’s spokesperson announced that 24-year-old legislative aide, Aidan Maese-Czeropski, was “no longer employed by the U.S. Senate.”

In a statement posted to LinkedIn, Maese-Czeropski said he showed “poor judgment,” then claimed he didn’t make the video with the feeble excuse that he would never “disrespect” his workplace.

“This has been a difficult time for me, as I have been attacked for who I love to pursue a political agenda,” he wrote.

“While some of my actions in the past have shown poor judgement, I love my job and would never disrespect my workplace.”

At the time, it was speculated that charges would be filed for the after-hours act, but the U.S. Capitol Police said that they wouldn’t pursue criminal actions on Thursday.

Charges not filed against staffer for filming Senate sex tape

“For now, we are closing the investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding a sex video that was recorded inside the Hart Senate Office Building on the morning of Wednesday, December 13,” their statement read.

“After consulting with federal and local prosecutors, as well as doing a comprehensive investigation and review of possible charges, it was determined that – despite a likely violation of Congressional policy – there is currently no evidence that a crime was committed.”

They justified not charging Maese-Czeropski because as a Congressional staffer at the time, he had access to the room, despite it being closed to the public.

“The two people of interest were not cooperative, nor were the elements of any of the possible crimes met. The Congressional staffer, who has since resigned from his job, exercised his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent and refused to talk to us,” the statement continued.

“Our investigators are willing to review new evidence should any come to light,” Capitol Police concluded.

Social media fumes over lack of charges for Senate sex tape

Social media users were left stunned that recording a sex act in a Senate hearing room does not constitute a criminal act.

“It is officially legal to have recorded sex in US Senate hearing room,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton tweeted.

“Let me get this straight… merely walking through the capitol unauthorized is a felony,” Real Clear Investigations Writer Mark Hemingway wrote.

“But having public sex in the building, filming it, and putting it online doesn’t merit a public lewdness charge?” He questioned. “Please tell why I am supposed to respect rule of law in this country.”

“Of course,” another added. “Democrats can do just about anything without consequences.”
