Significant Increase? So they were all right with this in small doses?

Ways that our tax dollars are spent for good (really?) and for bad.

#1 Significant Increase? So they were all right with this in small doses?

Post by bernomatic »

It appears the people in the United States Department of Agriculture are bored just watching animals procreate:
Back in September the USDA’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) blasted the agency for misusing information technology networks to view pornographic content on government-issued computers and other communication devices. In a management alert memo the watchdog revealed a “significant increase” in the number of USDA employees and contractors viewing and sharing unlawful or otherwise inappropriate pornographic content using their government-issued computers and other communication devices. Some of the content includes child pornography, according to the USDA OIG memo. “This employee misconduct is preventable, and it unnecessarily exposes USDA and its systems to significant risk,” the OIG memo states.
as if that isn't bad enough:

The USDA is hardly alone in the porn scandal. An epidemic of federal employees watching pornography on government computers during work hours got so out of control that legislation (Eliminating Pornography from Agencies Act) was introduced in Congress a few years ago to contain the embarrassing crisis. Porn has for years been part of the job at some government agencies and in fact, numerous federal audits have long documented the enraging details of how our tax dollars are being wasted. Judicial Watch has also reported extensively on the topic, especially the porn crisis at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the agency charged with policing the nation’s financial industry. While the economy crumbled, the SEC was preoccupied with pornography. In fact, high-ranking managers at the agency regularly spent work hours gawking at pornography web sites on their government computers while the country’s financial system collapsed.
So now we have to make a law to try and keep these "fine civil servants" from getting their rocks off at work? I don't care what they do at home on their private devices, but if they have time at work to watch porn, I think we need to cull the herd, so to speak.

I understand that bureaucrats in DC are now prohibited from staring out of the windows of their offices in the morning hours before lunch. The reasoning is because they wouldn't have anything to do in the afternoon.
