Last week Mother Jones reported that the Trump campaign had nominated a prominent California white supremacist to be a national convention delegate. (That individual, William Johnson, has since resigned his spot.) On Thursday, MoJo has another, equally disturbing story: A Maryland Trump delegate was indicted Tuesday on weapons and child pornography charges. From the magazine:

The federal indictment alleges that Caleb Andrew Bailey, 30, of Waldorf, Maryland, illegally mailed a cache of ammunition and explosives through the US Postal service, and illegally possessed a machine gun and child pornography. The indictment further alleges that Bailey “attempted to use and did use a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct to produce child pornography.”

The Trump campaign has not yet commented on the report.
