The Gateway Pundit reported earlier on Thursday, Patrick Wojahn, the Democrat Mayor of College Park, Maryland, resigned just one day before being arrested on 56 counts of possession and distribution of child pornography.
The Prince George’s County police department arrested Wojahn soon after they discovered he was allegedly operating a social media account distributing pornography.
Before his arrest, Wojahn had friendships with high-profile Democrats such as Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.
The Washington Blade in 2019 reported, “Pete Buttigieg has mentored Patrick Wojahn over the years.”
Local College Park news outlet the Diamond Back would go further and reported Patrick Wojahn received important advice from Buttigieg and the two even went out for beers once in Riverdale, Maryland.

Several pictures of Buttigieg and Wojahn were discovered on Wojahn’s social media pages.
"If you notice a pattern across all of my policies, it’s this: The answers don't all have to come from Washington, but more of the resources should. And on my watch, they will, to support American mayors and cities."

Per Diamond Back:
When College Park Mayor Patrick Wojahn attended his first United States Conference of Mayors in January 2016, he received advice from another mayor: Pete Buttigieg.
Buttigieg gave advice on how to incorporate a university into city politics, since both cities are college towns. Wojahn also sought advice on how a city with different ideas and neighborhoods could “come together on a common vision and common plan” — a challenge for him when he started as mayor.
Wojahn and Buttigieg have kept in touch over the past few years. When Buttigieg held a July campaign event in Riverdale, Maryland, the two went out for beers.
Besides rubbing elbows with Buttigeg, the disgraced mayor was also invited to the White House alongside his husband.
Wojahn was invited to the White House by the Biden admin to celebrate the signing of the Respect for Marriage act.
Per WTOP News:
President Biden signed the Respect for Marriage Act into law on the White House’s South Lawn on Tuesday, and among the many couples who gathered to witness and celebrate the signing was a couple from College Park, Maryland.
“It certainly is a momentous occasion,” said College Park Mayor Patrick Wojahn, who attended the event with his husband, Dave Kolesar.
