Jim Feldkamp, who twice was the Republican nominee to challenge Democratic Rep. Peter DeFazio in Oregon’s 4th Congressional District, has been charged with secretly recording himself having consensual sex with a university student in Arlington, Va., according to local media reports.
Feldkamp, 53, is a Roseburg native whose family owns Umpqua Dairy. He ran twice for Congress, in 2004 and 2006, each time securing the GOP nomination. But he lost heavily against DeFazio in the general election on both occasions.
Feldkamp has been an adjunct professor at George Mason University in Virginia since 2008. He met the female student on campus but wasn’t teaching her at the time of the alleged recording, according to the media reports. They had consensual sex last August, but the student allegedly didn’t agree to Feldkamp recording their encounter.
The student found the camera in Feldkamp’s apartment and saw the video. After Feldkamp allegedly downplayed the recording, the woman called police.
Feldkamp first was arrested in November, court records show. He’s facing a charge of nonconsensually filming a person in the nude. That’s a first-class misdemeanor in Virginia, punishable by up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine. Feldkamp is due back in court on Jan. 31, according to court records.
Feldkamp, a former Navy commander and FBI special agent, taught courses on domestic and international terrorism at George Mason. But his faculty page on the university’s website now has been removed.
Feldkamp could not be reached for comment Wednesday evening.
