Earlier this week, College Park mayor Patrick Wojahn, aged 47, was arrested on 56 charges related to possession and distribution of child pornography.

The mayor abruptly resigned after the criminal charges were publicly announced, which included  40 counts of possession of exploitative child material and 16 counts of distribution of exploitative child material.

Images and posts from social media indicate that Wojahn and Biden Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg enjoyed a somewhat close relationship.

Wojahn spoke positively of Buttigieg on multiple occasions and the two were pictured together at multiple events throughout the last few years.

At one point, Wojhan went so far as to describe Buttigieg as one of his ‘mentors’, saying that he received a government post due to the former South Bend mayor’s mentorship.

“I now serve in a leadership role as vice chair of city livability and bicycling in part due to his mentorship,” Wojahn said.

Wojhan visited the White House and met with high-profile Democratic officials on a somewhat regular basis, including former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.), and attended events at the White House during pride month.

Wojhan attended pride events both in and out of College Park regularly.

A spokesperson for Buttigieg has denied that the two had a close relationship, though they did admit that the two have met ‘multiple times’.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg reportedly mentored the disgraced former College Park, Maryland, mayor facing 56 child porn-related charges, and, according to the accused, they even enjoyed a beer together.

Patrick Wojahn, the 47-year-old gay Democrat arrested on a slew of child porn possession and distribution charges Thursday, has known Buttigieg for seven or eight years.

“I actually met Mayor Pete Buttigieg shortly after I was elected mayor in 2015,” Wojahn told the Washington Blade in a 2019 interview when Buttigieg was a presidential candidate. “I went to the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ Winter Meeting in D.C. in January and he was assigned to be my buddy.”

“Just two mayors, grabbing a beer together,” wrote Wojahn.

In a June 2021 Instagram post boasting selfies with Pete and Chasten Buttigieg, Wojahn wrote it’s “[a]lways great to see these guys at the White House!!”
