Illinois state Rep. Nick Sauer has been hit with the kind of complaint that used to be career-ending — but nowadays, who knows?
An ex-GF, Kate Kelly, has accused Sauer of using her privately shared nudes to lure men into sexual conversations online, men who thought they were talking with Kelly.
The complaint spells out that Sauer allegedly messaged men on Instagram and engaged in graphic sex talk. The Republican is currently running for re-election, but this seems to be taking constituent outreach a bit seriously.
Kelly had broken up with Sauer — after relocating to be with him — when she found out he was seeing other women. And, apparently, hearing other men.
According to the complaint Kelly filed with the Legislative Inspector General’s office, a man previously unknown to Kelly reached out to her on July 12 on her personal Instagram account to inform her “he had been communicating for 4 months with someone pretending” to be Kelly.
The complaint says Kelly’s employer helped her determine how long the fake Instagram account had been in use based on when messages were sent, which was close to the time they had started dating.
In her complaint, Kelly writes that Sauer admitted as much. “He came to my house & confessed to catfishing men with my photos for 2 years to at least 8 men. He was unable to provide the names and begged that I let it go,” she wrote.
What a catch.
