Officials in Florida on Monday said that an elected Florida Republican Party committeeman had been arrested on multiple charges of possessing and transmitting child pornography.

Walton County Sheriff Mike Adkinson confirmed to The Northwest Florida Daily News that Lane Rees, a former Walton County Commissioner, was taken into custody around 5 p.m. on Monday after a month-long investigation.

Deputies recovered “multiple images” of child pornography after serving a search warrant on his home in Santa Rosa Beach.

Rees was elected to the Walton County Commission in 2000, where he served until being defeated by 23-year-old Republican Scott Brannon four years later. He has served as Walton County’s Republican state committeeman since being elected by party members in 2008.

In 2001, Walton County named Rees “Man of the Year.” According to his bio, Rees is President of the consulting group Human Resource Solutions, Inc. and serves on the board of the United Methodist Church’s Foundation for Evangelism.

Rees faces up to 10 years in prison and $10,000 in fines if convicted on all charges.

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
