O'Malley dumps state campaign chair after child porn bust

Washington (CNN)Martin O'Malley's campaign has cut all ties with a state campaign chairman who was arrested on child pornography charges.

"We're horrified by these allegations, and if he is found guilty he should be punished to the full extent of the law. He is no longer a volunteer, and we have severed all ties with him immediately," O'Malley press secretrary Haley Morris said in an email to CNN about the campaign's now ex-Virginia state chairman.
Michael Teegarden, a Richmond-area businessman, was arrested Thursday on two felony counts after being accused of having been involved in the exchanging of online child pornography, The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported.
His Twitter bio lists him as: 'O'Malley for President 2016, Virginia Chair. Relatively hip dad.'
    Teegarden was an assistant principal, teacher and coach before becoming a vice president at the MainStreet Group, a financial services firm, according to his job bio.
