He called out his bosses for being hypocrites after their extramarital affair went public.

Now Joshua Cline a former aide to state representatives Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat is in the hot seat for being linked to adult cheating website AshleyMadison.com according to a report by West Michigan Politics.

Cline, who is married, reportedly was a subscriber to AshleyMadison.com for three years. And it seems he's not the only government official connected to the site.

At a press conference Cline called Courser and Gamrat's efforts to legislate marriage in Michigan hypocritical.

"You have marriage vows and you should stick to them and it does reek of hypocrisy," Cline said earlier this week. "I am with most of the rest of the public that that views that the same way."

Hundreds of federal employees have been found to be using taxpayer funded internet connections to access AshleyMadison.com and pay membership fees.

Earlier this week hackers released detailed records of Ashley Madison users online. Now there's worry those in high profile government jobs and the military could be open to blackmail. 

None of the federal employees outed for using AshleyMadison.com have been identified because they have not been accused of committing a crime.

Cline told reporters he suspected an affair and in January mentioned his concerns at a late night staff meeting but was told it was not his place.

So he took his concerns elsewhere. That's when Cline says he quit.

"It is not an easy task to choose integrity over a paycheck to support my family," he said at the time.
