Pekin, Ind. - A U.S. Census worker has been charged with rape and burglary, after two women in southern Indiana claim they were attacked. One of the victims was a 21 year-old physically handicapped woman. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, he had been with the agency for two weeks.
The attack occurred Saturday morning in Pekin, Indiana in Washington County.
Police said the man broke in while a mother and daughter slept and attacked them. According to investigators, the mother had taken a mild sleeping pill. The man, identified as 39 year-old Daniel Miller, was arrested following the incident. He said he worked for the government.
Four days before the attack, neighbors in the area say they saw Miller in the area on census business. The victim told police Miller had asked about their census information. She said they had already submitted the form. She also told police that Miller stuck around and tried to get more details.

"It's unbelievable that somebody could do something like that and not have a conscience and worry about it," said resident Debbie Bishop.
Miller's apartment is located right across the road from a middle school. When a news crew knocked on the door of his apartment, another man answered. He did not want to go on camera or be identified, however, he did say Miller had two daughters of his own.
Miller was taken to the Washington County Detention Center, held on a $150,000 bond.
There are about 635,000 U.S. Census workers currently going door to door counting Americans who did not return their surveys. They will carry white badges with blue writing. The badges do not have photos. Census workers should also be carrying black canvas shoulder bags and brochures printed in 51 languages. If asked, the census takers are supposed to give you a supervisor's number to call.
“I’m from the government, and I’m here to rape you.”
It appears the Commerce Dept. is hiring the cream of the crop to be census works. They must be getting their guidance from TSA.
Aparently, Obama has no scruples with regard to hiring criminals and miscreants. These people deserve work too!
So they are demanding more than just how many live there.
If you didn’t invite them, don’t open the door. Period.
So is it a saved or created job?
How would this information have been any help whatsoever to the rape victims of an actual census worker? If called, his supervisor would only have confirmed his legitimate employment.
Shoulda mailed back that Census form! /sarc
That worker must have mistakenly thought he worked for the IRS.
Sorry for the victims but we’ve all been virtually screwed for years.
Just listened to a tv ad that said something like “open your door to the census worker”....You’d think they’d pull that ad in light of this.
Probably the same background check used for Van Jones.
U.S. Census Bureau spokesman Stephen Buckner confirms Miller started working for the agency two weeks prior to the alleged attack, but says he underwent a thorough background check prior to being hired.”
Riiiiiiiiight...they’ve done 650,000 THOROUGH background checks....please...
FWIW, I don’t believe that the Feebies are routinely conducting backround checks on census worker applicants, either.
I wish the census worker had that in mind for me!
She was smokin’ hot!
All applicants for temporary Census jobs go through a pre-appointment name check against the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Criminal Justice Information Services Divisions Name Index. This means that the FBI database is searched to see if it contains a criminal history record file that matches an applicants name, date of birth, and social security number. This criminal history record file contains records of individuals that have been arrested and fingerprinted.
They're supposed to do it. I wonder how often it really gets done.
“FWIW, I dont believe that the Feebies are routinely conducting backround checks on census worker applicants, either.”
Let alone THOROUGH background checks...this is so sick.
Even then, a background check is only going to get you so much. It's only going to turn up the stuff somebody's been ~caught~ doing.
Still no mention on whether or not the alleged perp had any priors.
“She also told police that Miller stuck around and tried to get more details.”
This guy sounds like a classic predator. He may not have a record, but I’d lay good money this isn’t “out of the blue” behavior for him, either.
Either way, what a creep.
No need to repeat: "I'm from the government" implies the second clause.
both x 2
I didn’t know there was a Pekin, Indiana. It is 322 miles from me here in Pekin, Illinois.
>> Im from the government, and Im here to rape you.
Yawn. Rape at the hands of the government is sort of a “dog bites man” story. ;-)
>> There are about 635,000 U.S. Census workers currently going door to door counting Americans who did not return their surveys.
We got one today, and we DID return our survey. Although we didn’t necessarily fill it all out the way they expected.
As I recall, the badge he had around his neck was white with RED printing.
Doesn’t matter, I sent his a$$ packing in short order.
I’m sure we’ll get another one soon.
Ignore all census workers at your door.
If you believe you must talk with them, talk from behind a locked and braced door, with a firearm ready.
Yup, they look like raping murderers. Run!!!....
She was smokin hot!
We must live in the same neighborhood. The lovely young coed walking around my block with her census badge made me wish I hadn't mailed mine in.
Here's Daniel Miller, burglar and raper, and also a Census taker. He looks like such a nice guy....
Violation of privacy. Search without a warrant.
This is actually unreasonablesearch and seizure.
I am from the government census. Does your daughter like sex?
This whole politicized census should be trashed as inconstitutional.
What a creep.
Come on, the constitution allows for a census, not the extra questions but it allows for a census, if you didn’t mail the forms back, you’ll get a knock on the door. There are a handful or more Freepers that are doing this - we don’t have current jobs, or it’s supplementing what we do have.
Not every census worker is a rapist, and I’ll tell you it’s just as scary for us to knock on doors not knowing what/who is behind the door. It by no means pays enough for the what is potentially out there.
If it’s uncomfortable not knowing what resides behind closed doors, why do that census job in the first place?
Funny thing when you’re out of work - bills still need to be paid.
Anyone who does not want to talk to census workers simply need to print out this story and have it on hand if they suffer any ramifications because of it.
guy probably used his job to prowl for victims. Predators often find work that allows them to hunt while doing “official” business.
Sounds like he was pretending to be a census worker.
No need to go through background checks when you are handing out government money.
One doesn't need to unlock their house to anyone not holding a valid search warrant.
What a horribly tragic crime. Very sad news indeed.
It is horrible, and you are right.
I sent my form back. Haven’t had any visitors and they are doing my neighborhood now.
It was addressed to current resident. And that was me. Figured they don’t need my name.
I put down the number of people living here and for race I put American.
And I’m working for the census. LOL And yes I ask the questions but if they don’t want to answer that’s fine. Just give me a number that’s all that is required.
I didn’t get mine in the mail, and someone from my class came by my house, I gave my name only because she knew it anyway and could have filled it in - I also put American. I figure we are 4th or 5th generation, so we are.
Haven't gotten an answer yet...
You aren’t holding your breath waiting for one are you? ;)
Ha...that’s why we need a sarcasm font.
There is nothing benign about the Obama junta and its czars and representitives, including you.Mussolini had conservatives do his biding to give his regime an air of legitimacy. Obama has none.
You represent Obama? You represent the enemy who conducts political and demographic warfare on the country.
