Child pornography found on Assistant U.S. Attorney’s computer
The Daily Caller ^ | 7 Jul 2011 | Caroline May

Posted on 07/07/2011 3:22:41 PM PDT by mandaladon

Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder Thursday requesting an explanation as to why the Justice Department declined to file charges against a federal prosecutor with child pornography found on his work computer.

The finding against the Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) was made by the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG).

According to the Inspector General’s report, the AUSA admitted to spending a significant amount of time each day viewing porn at work.

“The OIG conducted an investigation concerning allegations that an AUSA was using his government computer to view inappropriate material on his government computer,” the Grassley letter quoted from the OIG report. “The investigation determined that the AUSA routinely viewed adult content during official duty hours, and that there was at least one image of child pornography recovered on the AUSA’s government computer. The AUSA acknowledged that he had spent a significant amount of time each day viewing pornography.”

Grassley further questioned why the department kept employing the individual for at least two months following the report; what types of cases this AUSA prosecuted; the status of the individual’s pension; and what types of Internet filters the Department now uses.

Last year 33 employees at the Securities and Exchange Commission were found to have viewed pornography on the taxpayer’s dime without receiving harsh discipline.....What the heck is going on in this administration?

That is just sick. The Obama administration seriously does a horrible job at self-policing. Must be because they have no morals.

I’m sure members of the Saudi Royal Family can use their government computers to look at anything they want on the internet. Under this administration, our government’s employees get the same treatment.

At these levels the people are civil service employees, not political appointees. It should be handled as a personnel matter.

Hussein will make him the czar of pedephilia. Now that he has gotten the LGT community legitimized, he'll be making that legal next.

He was using “his government computer to view inappropriate material on his government computer”?

He must work for the Department of Redundancy Department.

Oh come on Senator Grassly, you should know by now that Democrats do no wrong. Thus, no charges filed. Even dopey old bkopto knows this.

Meanwhile, Holder the street trash punk is going after our CIA professionals for the interrogation techniques used against Al Qaeda scum, techniques that gave Ovama the only bright moment of his presidency—the nailing of OBL. It’s an Alice in Wonderland Justice Dept. in an Alice and Wonderland presidential administration.

Pedephiles also say they were born that way. Obama probably thinks being pro-life is worse than a pedophile.

Grassley further questioned why the department kept employing the individual for at least two months following the report; what types of cases this AUSA prosecuted;

Seems like this person was let go after two months if I am reading this right, which seems reasonable to ensure he was terminated with due process

I would be concerned about what type of cases he was assigned to prosecute.

It takes about two hours for someone to be suspended in the private workplace for these crimes and maybe two days to process the termination!NOT two months.

How many Federales don’t spend half their day surfing for porn????? I thought it was a job requirement. More proof you could fire half these idiots and no one would notice. Major corporations run 10 times leaner than the Federales whose ranks are swollen with incompetent lard arses and affirmative action hires

Actually in most corps because of wrongfull termination nobody is suspended in two hours, maybe to days for legal to look at

You really expect federal government workers to be not given their due process ???

Whenever “government” actually fires someone normally they have their ducks in a row because goernment unions certainly will make it as hard as possible to rid themsleves of these scumbags

Read the entire article. The guy was surfing for porn at work, which is wrong but surprisingly common. They thought he had one item of what they characterized as child porn. That could mean a lot of different things. He’s not one of the pedophiles who collect and trade the stuff.

One item of child porn on a computer constitutes a crime. Or does the law allow one freebie?
