Revenge porn claims another victim.

A prominent National Security Agency defender who previously compared agency whistleblower Edward Snowden to Adolf Hitler has resigned his professorship at the Naval War College after someone blew the whistle—on what was allegedly his penis.

John Schindler, himself a former NSA analyst, announced his departure Monday evening.

According to Ars Technica, Schindler had been on leave since June, after photos a penis, purportedly his, surfaced on Twitter. The photos had been sent to an unnamed woman with whom he had a reportedly consensual relationship, and was highlighted by some as the rare case of apparent revenge porn enacted by a woman against a man.

The Daily Dot reached out to Schindler to ask whether his resignation was specifically over the penis photos, but he didn't immediately respond. But Naval War College spokesperson Cmdr. Kelly Brannon told the Washington Times that the institution had concluded an investigation into the photos in July, and that Schindler had then been given seven days to submit his resignation.
