Long-Time Senate Staffer For Thad Cochran Busted For Dealing Date Rape Drug
A long-time staff member for Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) was arrested this week after D.C. police and the Department of Homeland Security officials charged him with possessing drugs with intent to distribute. Fred Pagan, 49, was found to be in possession of meth and GBL, which is used as a date rape drug. Pagan told officers he distributed the drugs in exchange for sexual favors. Customs officials first detected the drug in a DHL package shipped from China that was addressed to Pagan's D.C. home. Pagan earns $160,000 a year as a personal assistant and office administrator for Sen. Cochran.
