James McHaney, 28, was nabbed by FBI agents after he arranged the afternoon liaison via a “cooperating witness” working with investigators. According to the below felony complaint and an accompanying statement of facts filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., the CW and McHaney were conversing online Friday afternoon when the CW asked whether McHaney was interested in engaging in anal sex with a 13-year-old boy. “I’ll be there,” McHaney allegedly replied. He later asked for a photo of the child with whom he and the CW would have sex and whether the boy had “any pubes.” When told no, McHaney allegedly replied, “That’s hot.” McHaney was nabbed in the lobby of an unnamed “predetermined location,” where he had arranged to meet CW. Until his arrest Friday, McHaney had worked as the D.C. scheduler for Democratic Senator Maria Cantwell. A caller to Cantwell’s office was told late today that, as of last Friday, McHaney no longer worked for the Washington state politician.

    geeze louise, that is outrageous , How do these pedophiles think are going to get away with this – not get caught these days. I get nervous just thinking the notion of an underage kid or a poser on line in a drag net. Does DC have something in its gotta wonder. What is up with the Foleys and these types. In the public mind , they give us all a bad name. sheesh what a story…it just keeps coming, and Craig is back in the hot seat – though at least he deals with consentig adults and just a malicious closet case. Criminy.

    This has nothing to do with McHaney being gay. Its all about his alleged interests in underaged kids.
