Bill De Blasio Employee and Prominent Young Democrat Arrested on Child Porn Charges

A leading young Democrat and de Blasio administration employee was arrested Thursday for allegedly keeping thousands of child pornography images and videos on his laptop.

Jacob Schwartz, 29, was busted for allegedly keeping more than 3,000 images and 89 videos on a laptop after downloading them from the internet.

The illegal trove shows “young nude females between the approximate ages of 6 months and 16, engaging in sexual conduct… on an adult male,” court papers say.

Schwartz’s father — labor lawyer and Democratic insider Arthur Schwartz — called his son’s case “a personal tragedy.”

“I understand these are serious charges,” said the elder Schwartz, who watched his son get arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court on Thursday night.

Jacob Schwartz is the president of the Manhattan Young Democrats and the downstate region vice president of the New York State Young Democrats. New York Police Department investigators arrested him for downloading 3,000 images and 89 videos of child pornography, including female babies as young as 6 months old, the media reported.

Schwartz was charged with two felonies, promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing a sexual performance by a child under 16.

Court papers said Schwartz’s laptop revealed “young nude females between the approximate ages of 6 months and 16, engaging in sexual conduct … on an adult male.”

Schwartz, who works as a computer programmer analyst in the city Department of Design and Construction, surrendered to the NYPD in Manhattan on Thursday morning.

He was released on $7,500 bail.

He’d been under investigation since March 29, when he handed over his laptop and gave cops written permission to search it, court papers say.

Even though Jacob Schwartz is the president of the Manhattan Young Democrats and the downstate region vice president of the New York State Young Democrats, his name and photo were scrubbed from both groups’ web sites after the news of his arrest.

A statement from the Manhattan Young Democrats said the organization was “shocked” by the allegations against Schwartz, and added that he was “no longer a member of the board, and an interim president is now in place.”

A photo posted last year on Twitter shows him posing with Robby Mook, then the campaign manager for Hillary Clinton’s disastrous presidential campaign.

According to his online biography, Schwartz got involved in politics at a young age, helping his father campaign for Democratic district leader in Greenwich Village.

The elder Schwartz served as New York counsel to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ failed presidential campaign, and was also the campaign treasurer for law professor and liberal activist Zephyr Teachout when she challenged Gov. Andrew Cuomo for the 2014 Democratic nomination. Arthur Schwartz also had his own brush with the law in 2015, when he was busted for removing hidden surveillance cameras trained on the front door of a $700-a-month, rent-stabilized apartment occupied by a 93-year-old client battling her landlord.

Prosecutors agreed to drop felony grand larceny charges in exchange for Arthur Schwartz paying $720 in restitution.
