ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- The Boy Scouts of America kept a file on a former Maryland congressman after a 1980 scandal involving a male prostitute.

Robert Bauman represented the Eastern Shore from 1973 to 1981.

In 1980, he was charged with attempting to solicit sex from a 16-year-old. Five days later, scouting executive Ted Taylor of the Delmarva Council wrote the group's national council. Taylor wrote Bauman had been previously registered in the council but hadn't renewed his registration. He also said Bauman was on the council's advisory board.

That account is among the 14,500 pages of scouting documents released last week.

Bauman couldn't immediately be reached Tuesday for comment. He told The Baltimore Sun he doesn't remember being on the council and wasn't closely affiliated with the Boy Scouts.
