During the high profile Kavanaugh hearings last week, someone in the House of Representatives doxxed three Republican Senators, sharing their home addresses and private phone numbers on the internet.
Now we know who it was. Jackson Cosko, an unpaid intern for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee was arrested Wednesday.
Roll Call reports:
Suspect in Congressional Doxxing Cases Arrested
Capitol Police have arrested a suspect in the doxxing of senators and releasing personal information onto the internet.
Jackson A. Cosko, 27, of Washington, D.C., was charged Wednesday with “making public restricted personal information,” witness tampering, unauthorized access of a government computer, identity theft, second degree burglery, unlawful entry and threats in interstate communications.
Cosko is in police custody pending his first appearance, which is scheduled for Thursday at 1:30 p.m. in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, according to U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesperson Bill Miller…
Cosko was recently an unpaid intern for Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee. He no longer works there and the office is “cooperating with law enforcement.”
He previously worked for Democratic Sens. Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire and California’s Barbara Boxer, who has since retired. Cosko was most recently listed in the Senate directory phone book as Hassan’s “legislative correspondent/systems administrator.” His LinkedIn profile says he left Hassan’s office in May 2018.
This young man is in a world of trouble. Republicans are tired of the viciousness of the left, which means Cosko will probably be prosecuted.
