Mayor Patrick Wojahn Arrested for Child Porn, Buddies with Pete Buttigieg
The proudly gay mayor of College Park, Maryland, has been arrested on 56 charges related to child pornography.
Patrick Wojahn, 47, once boasted of his mentor/mentee relationship with Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who is also gay and was the mayor of South Bend, Indiana.
"I actually met Mayor Pete Buttigieg shortly after I was elected mayor in 2015," Wojahn said in a 2019 interview with the Washington Blade, an LGBT outlet. "I went to the U.S. Conference of Mayors' Winter Meeting in D.C. in January and he was assigned to be my buddy."
Wojahn said he attended a White House reception in the Obama era in which his partner and Buttigieg's would meet.
In speaking of his friendship with Buttigieg, he said his status in the conference of mayors was boosted "in part due to his mentorship."
Today, Wojahn reminisces how he was "mentored" over the years by Pete Buttigieg. They met when Wojahn went to the U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting, where Buttigieg "was assigned to be my buddy." Their husbands were introduced to each other at a White House reception under Obama.
