Suffice it to say she wasn't happy about their breakup

(Newser) – Today in cautionary tales from the Internet, we have Adam Kuhn, the now-former chief of staff for Ohio GOP Rep. Steve Stivers. It seems that Kuhn stepped down yesterday after an ex-girlfriend and former porn star tweeted a photo of his naughty bits to Stivers' Twitter account, reports Politico. "Over the weekend, I was the victim of an attack on Twitter from a woman I had a relationship with in my personal life," Kuhn said in a statement. "I realize and apologize I had used poor judgement in my personal life regarding this relationship."

Stivers' office confirmed Kuhn's resignation, saying it "is not commenting on his personal life." Kuhn, it's worth noting, is single, while adult film star Jennifer Roubenes Allbaugh, known in certain circles as "Ruby," is married. "I hate you, AJK, you selfish pompous a—hole," she tweeted (her Twitter account has since been taken down). Politico helpfully notes that Kuhn's middle name is Joshua; Allbaugh confirms that she's "a disgruntled former girlfriend" who "just wanted to teach (Kuhn) a lesson." "It seems a little unfair that Kuhn would be asked to resign, assuming he didn't leave under his own will," writes Andy Cush at Gawker, asking, "what exactly did he do wrong here?"
