Trump-backed Senate candidate faces GOP worries that he could be linked to adult website profile

March 15, 2024

But ahead of Tuesday’s primary election, there’s mounting anxiety inside the GOP that Bernie Moreno may emerge with the nomination. Trump easily won the state in 2016 and 2020 and the GOP controls top statewide offices along with both chambers of the legislature. That review, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter, linked the profile to Moreno’s work email address. The AP obtained data from the Adult Friend Finder leak as well as information that remains publicly accessible on the company’s website. During his current Senate campaign, Moreno has accused advocates for LGBTQ rights of advancing a “radical” agenda of “indoctrination.” He is endorsed by Ohio Value Voters, a group that opposes LGBTQ rights, including same-sex marriage.
