Sen. Jeff Kruse Says Recorded Online Video Chat Part Of A Blackmail Attempt

It’s clear that Sen. Jeff Kruse took his shirt off and smoked a cigarette during an online chat, while unaware he was being recorded.

But the person who posted the video on YouTube about a year ago implied it was more than that.

Kruse told The News-Review he was unaware of the video, which was posted in 2016, until state police contacted him about two weeks ago. He said he was told by police he might be a victim if sexual activity was happening during the recording. A caption underneath alleged he was masturbating.
