Police investigating a rape allegation against Florida GOP Chair Christian Ziegler also are probing whether he committed the crime of video voyeurism, according to a new search warrant affidavit.

Sarasota Police filed an application for a third search warrant on Dec. 8 seeking records from Ziegler’s Instagram account. Two previous search warrants sought his cell phone and Google account records.

A Sarasota police detective wrote in the search warrant affidavit for Instagram records that she believes “probable cause exists to show (Zeigler) has utilized Instagram to commit the crime of Video Voyeurism.”

The search warrant affidavit provides more information about a video Ziegler took of his Oct. 2 sexual encounter with a woman who accused him of rape.
