Skip to comments.Feds defy warnings over porn surfing; more get caught years after scandal
Posted on 03/21/2014 6:44:44 PM PDT by massmike
When confronted with the charge that he had looked at pornography on his government computer 13,224 times during a 14-month span, one Bureau of Public Debt employee offered a novel excuse: He had too much time on his hands.
Co-workers were tipped off by sexual sounds and moaning and panting coming from the workers cubicle. He stated that he often does not have enough work to do and has free time, an investigator summed up in a case memo obtained by The Washington Times.
Four years after a humiliating scandal involving porn-snooping employees at the Securities and Exchange Commission, which prompted a well-publicized federal lawsuit, some government workers still havent gotten the message, according to records that show continued offenses at Treasury Department agencies.

Our tax dollars at work.
Not enough work to go around, eh? Sounds like they are overstaffed, time to slice and dice the staff positions.
I hope those were coming from the computer...
Perhaps the Government should go into the porn business. /s
13,224 divided by 308 = 43 times a day
Time for the revolution yet?
...and I get yelled at for playing Solitaire.......
He stated that he often does not have enough work to do and has free time,
There’s the real crime. Theft from taxpayers. Which will be overlooked, of course, because hundreds of thousands would be caught in that net.
While the co-workers were on facebook, hello kitty and doing their casual shopping.
Don’t they have a firewall? I got blocked from sites with info about nukes, and nuke effects is my job.
Our tax dollars HARD at work!
Please don’t let the govt take over the porn business...
Porn is just about the only industry that’s still IN business these days....!!!
(and besides, government ruins everything it touches...)
Cyblock is used where I am and it is very, very restrictive.
If he’s surfing porn he is leaving some citizen the hell alone.
I think most federal employment right now is a hidden welfare program.
It sounds like he had more than too much time on his hands.
Sounds like another government shutdown needs to be had. Ted?
time to slice and dice the staff positions

Yes, I can see them getting right on it.
FIRST, have to hire 25,000 or so to form Blue Ribbon Commissions to hire enough people to ‘STUDY’ the situation, hire another 100,000 to perform the study.
After 5 years it will be deemed ‘inconclusive’ with the result being “WE” have another 125,000 PLUS on the payroll with absolutely NO changes in the original.
REMEMBER - These are the people that bring/brought us the idea that prospectively raising a budget 20% and approving a 15% raise results in the ‘OPPOSITION’ claiming the budget was CUT 5% from the previous year, so they get together (HA) to ‘right the wrong, reinsert the 5% then ADD another 5% to ‘make up for the wrongs’.
Beautiful game they are playing and WE (collectively) have been complacent for so long it will be darn near impossible to ‘fix’, while the ‘few’ that have been griping all along will be continually chastised for promoting Racial or Sexual prejudice (OR whatever ‘flavor of the day’ is in power).
Exactly - they keep the NIPRNet so locked down that it's tough to get to a lot of legitimate sites. I wonder where he works that they get such open access.
On the flip side - possible that it's phone-type access with private devices vs. gov't resources (other than him).
Ahh yes, the SEC. They could not find Bernie Madoff, but heck, at least they nailed Martha Stewart.
Hmmm. Come to think of it was not one of Madoff’s daughters married to an SEC investigator? Hmmm.
