Patrick Wojahn, the Maryland mayor busted on charges of possessing child pornography Thursday has had a longtime mentor-mentee relationship with President Biden’s embattled Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.
Wojahn was arrested on 56 counts of possession and distribution of child pornography.
Former College Park Mayor Wojahn, 47, has credited Buttigieg’s “mentorship” with helping him advance his career in interviews.
“I actually met Mayor Pete Buttigieg shortly after I was elected mayor in 2015,” Wojahn, who is gay, told the Washington Blade, an LGBT-focused news outlet, back in 2019.
Wojahn explained how the former South Bend, Ind., mayor, who is also gay, was tasked with being his “buddy” at a gathering of mayors in Washington long before Buttigieg’s 2020 White House run.

Democrat Mayor Who Was Arrested for Child P*rn Mentored by Pete Buttigieg
By Trending Politcs, March 3, 2023
On Thursday, authorities announced that Patrick Wojahn, the mayor of College Park, Maryland, had been arrested on numerous charges of suspected child p*rnography and had subsequently resigned from his position.
The Prince George’s County Police Department reported that Wojahn, 47, was accused of 56 counts of alleged child p*rnography, including 40 counts of possessing child exploitative material and 16 counts of distributing child exploitative material.
According to the WashingtonBlade, Wojhan was mentored by Pete Buttigieg. The article was written in 2019 and goes into depth about the relationship the two political figures had.
During his Council elections and his first run as a mayoral candidate, Wojahn knew he had no choice but to run as an openly gay man because of his media prominence with the marriage equality lawsuit.
But being elected as an out gay mayor landed him a fortuitous mentor…
The two continued to talk over the phone and Buttigieg explained the conference to him and what would take place at the meeting. Later, they would both attend a White House reception during the Obama administration where Dave and Chasten (Buttigieg) would meet as well.
Wojahn said, “I actually met Mayor Pete Buttigieg shortly after I was elected mayor in 2015, I went to the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ Winter Meeting in D.C. in January and he was assigned to be my buddy.”
Buttigieg continued to mentor Wojahn.
Wojhan and Buttigieg faced similar LGBTQ issues. “We talked about balancing competing interests.”
“Some people raised concerns like does this mean we have to open City Hall to anyone who wants to fly a flag?” Wojhan claimed. “Like if the Ku Klux Klan wants to fly a flag.”
“Once we say we are an LGBT-friendly community, we don’t have to also then say we are not an LGBT-friendly community. That’s not what free speech is about.” Wojhan finished.
