A legislative aide for Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) is no longer employed by the Senate, according to Politico, after he was publicly connected to an explicit video that emerged Friday of two men having sex in a congressional hearing room, and after he admitted on social media he had shown ”poor judgement.”

Cardin’s office said in a statement to Politico that Aidan Maese-Czeropski was no longer employed by his office, but did not provide additional details on the “personnel matter.”

A graphic eight-second video of the Hart Senate Office Building sex scene was published Friday evening by right-wing outlet the Daily Caller, which said the tape had circulated in private group chats.

The Daily Caller did not identify either of the men in the video and blurred the face of one person it identified as a Senate staffer, but Maese-Czeropski’s name was shared on social media and later repeated by conservative outlets like the New York Post (most major news outlets haven’t confirmed he was in the video).

Hours before the Daily Caller story broke, the Spectator reported an unnamed Cardin staffer had posted on social media a nude photo of himself in a Hart hearing room.

Capitol Police said in a statement to the Washington Examiner they are looking into the incident.
