Rep. Steve Stivers' (R-Ohio) chief of staff resigned Tuesday after an ex-girlfriend tweeted a photo of the aide's penis to the congressman's Twitter account on Saturday, according to Politico.

Adam Kuhn, the now-former staffer, told Politico that he "was the victim of an attack on Twitter from a woman" with whom he'd been in a relationship.

“I realize and apologize I had used poor judgement in my personal life regarding this relationship. The woman who posted this has reached out to me to apologize,” Kuhn said.

The woman, Jennifer Roubenes Allbaugh -- who happens to be a former porn star -- was apparently upset about the ending of her relationship with Kuhn, which led her to tweet, “I hate you, AJK, you selfish pompous a—hole ... Now we’re even.”

This news comes a day after an apparent NSFW selfie surfaced from a Naval War College professor and little over a week after a picture of a man wearing a giant penis costume was posted on Missouri state Rep. Mark Parkinson's (R) Twitter account.

Allbaugh, who calls herself the “Pornstar Pundit and debate lover" and has made over 200 adult films, told Politico that she “just wanted to teach the pompous a— a lesson.”

This is not the only time a politician has been embroiled in an internet scandal.

Former member of Congress Anthony Weiner embarrassingly admitted in July 2013 that he had been caught sexting for a second time. And former Rep. Chris Lee (R-N.Y.) resigned from Congress in February 2011 after he sent a shirtless photo of himself to a woman on Craigslist.
