Illinois State Rep Resigns Amid Allegations of Catfishing

Illinois state Rep. Nick Sauer (R-Lake Barrington) resigned on Wednesday amid allegations of creating a fake Instagram account and using it to post nude photos of his ex-girlfriend. Sauer’s ex Kate Kelly filed a formal complaint with the Office of the Legislative Inspector General and a police report with the Chicago Police Department alleging Sauer used the account “to catfish other men using my privately shared naked photos. Nick would use this account to direct message men with my photos to engage in graphic conversations of a sexual nature. The men believed they were communicating with me and Nick shared private details of my life.” In her complaint, Kelly said Sauer confessed to her of sending photos to at least eight men over two years.
