Caught up in the leaked names of Ashley Madison users, dating site for married individuals seeking extra marital affairs is Christian vlogger, Sam Rader of Christian couple Sam and Nia. The revelation comes after the couple made viral news earlier this month after announcing that Nia was pregnant only to recant days later to say that Nia had suffered a miscarriage.
The startling revelation comes by way of the dailymail who report that stolen data shared online by hackers revealed Rader having made two $189 payments to the dating service in September 2013. Interestingly the payments were made in the same month the couple’s second child was born whilst Sam was celebrating four years of marriage with wife Nia, 26.
Another four $14 payments were listed under the Christian vlogger’s name on the database after the birth.
The account details shared on Twitter and the 4chan forum – allegedly taken from the hacked Ashley Madison data – show the Christian vlogger’s name, his town of Terrell, Texas, and a zip code which matches Rader’s home address.
It also shows the user registered under an email address consisting of his name @becausethatswhy.com.
Forums reveal, Rader, who also works as a photographer, registered that domain name in 2011. The email comes up as a certified member of Ashley Madison on the many sites now established for suspicious spouses to check on their partner.
Ashley Madison is freely accessible site but users must buy credits to send messages: $49 gets 100 credits, while $250 earns 1,000 credits and a money-back ‘affair guarantee’ if you don’t have an affair within three months.
Records show Rader buying around 800 credits, nevertheless the Christian vlogger’s profile ceases to be active after the final payment in November 2013.

The revelation comes after hackers released data showing personal data of 37 million people who’d subscribed to Ashley Madison, which operates under the tagline, ‘
Talk is cheap, I had an affair,’ ‘Life is short. Have an affair.’
Tech experts have since made spreadsheets from the raw data and published them online including each paying user’s name, home address, credit card details, IP address, email address and how much they paid for the service.
Making the revelations particularly cumbersome is the fact that the Christian pair have seen their fan base exponentially grow, with the couple garnering more than 360,000 subscribers on their YouTube channel, where the couple document their ‘Christian’ life with their two young daughters, aged four and two, in Terrell, Texas.
With an income of $9.60 per 1,000 non-skippable advert views, according to Buzzfeed, the couple are speculated to earn hundreds of thousands of dollars annually for being ‘upstanding practicing Christians.’
Heightened interest in the pair came after the release of two videos earlier in August, one showing Sam ‘surprising’ Nia (indeed …) with the news that she was pregnant, with another announcing she had miscarried (indeed …).
News of the miscarriage soon led to punters questioning the validity of Nia’s miscarriage, which came just days after Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan spoke out about their miscarriages, making it a headline issue.
Proud Christians, the Raders hit back claiming their detractors were targeting them for their faith.
In a telling previously released video, Sam speaks about values and his love for Nia.
‘I want to be the man that I want my daughter to marry,’ he tells viewers.
‘That’s something that’s been on my mind lately, as far as when she asks me anything, or when it comes to like doing things with her, or being an example in front of her with Nia.
‘Because I feel like she’s absorbing more things lately than before, I feel like it’s really important now that I’m being a good man to Nia and to the family, and that she sees what a real man needs to be.’
The Christian vloggers also invited recent controversy after posting a video telling their daughter that gay marriage was wrong.
Explained the vlogger next day: ‘We are Christians. We believe in everything the bible says, and we believe that god created man and woman to be together.’ And how ….
Another video the Christian vloggers recently made also had Sam Rader making the following telling claim:
‘I want to be the man that I want my daughter to marry,’
‘That’s something that’s been on my mind lately, as far as when she asks me anything, or when it comes to like doing things with her, or being an example in front of her with Nia. Because I feel like she’s absorbing more things lately than before; I feel like it’s really important now that I’m being a good man to Nia and to the family, and that she sees what a real man needs to be.’
Sam Rader is the latest in a number of high profile figures to be implicated in the Ashley Madison hack.
At present it is not necessarily understood if the Christian vlogger actually went out on any dates or consummated any infidelity as all media queries continue to be rebuffed…
