Four-term Republican state senator Mike Folmer has been arrested after agents searched his Lebanon home Tuesday.

It follows an investigation that began march 4th into a tip from Tumblr.

The social networking site reported at least one image containing suspected child porn that was eventually linked to the 63-year-old Folmer.

He told investigators that he “had been dealing with some personal problems/issues and that he had received child pornography through his Tumblr blog.”

Senator Folmer has been immediately removed as chair of the Senate State Government Committee.

And GOP leaders say "further action will be taken by senate leadership in the coming days.”
