"We need to find some way to fire these folks," Mica added.

Um, how about, "We no longer desire your services", or something along those lines?

Such a country.

Other cases discussed before the House Oversight Committee included an EPA employee who had been tele-working from home for 20 years - but not really producing anything on a regular basis

We, uh, we fixed the glitch. So he won't be receiving a paycheck anymore, so it'll just work itself out naturally.

Six hundred porn sites in four days, either their definition of porn site is anything not Fox News or Exxon/Mobile is paying them off in high end lubricants.

Don't they have anything else to do?

Are you kidding?  Porn is ridiculous (really are you gonna pull it out and take care of yourself right there?) and distasteful at work but hardly the worst I've seen.  I've seen people have sex in the men's restroom, do drugs and bicycle around the workroom floor saying " you can't catch me"  really loud while people were on the phone, etc...

/all at private companies, the government jobs usually only let people nap.

Story doesnt tell if he was watching it at work during work hours? I mean he could be at home, zipping a few porn sites before work hours on a gouv computer. Or perhaps hes done with his daily business and wants to get down to the nitty gritty after work in his closed out office. Or perhaps he has an addiction to porn, where he needs to fap all day every day, like that judge with his suction pump. The daily grind isnt the same without at least one orgasm.

You fire them and if anyone asks for a ref. you tell them why they were fired.
How farking hard is that?
Wait, let me rephrase that.

Why do republican congressmen hate porn? I'm thinking there's more to this than we are being told.

Hell, this is nothing. When I worked for the government, a guy in DC got caught running a porn site on a government server. Why, yes, he was summarily terminated and subjected to criminal prosecution. Another guy was sending pictures of his junk to the ladies and describing how he would use it on them. He, too, was summarily terminated.

didnt read the article.

I actually did apply for a job at the EPA. I showed up in a rusty oil burning/leaking 1970's Buick Skylark. It leaked about a quart just sitting in their parking lot while I filled out the application. when I started the car to leave there was a loud backfire, the muffler fell off and there was a rust powder outline around where my car was.

This was back in 1999.

I did not get the job.

FTA:
One note about this case - when an agent from the IG's office went to interview the employee in question about his porn habit - that agent found the man sitting at his desk - watching porn.

"The OIG's investigation determined that the employee downloaded and viewed more than 7,000 pornographic files  during duty hours," the IG's office reported.

Meh, when a prospective employer calls and asks you about a former employees performance, etc., pretty much all you can say is how long they worked there, their salary, and if they are eligible for rehire.  If you say something derogatory, you may be in trouble.

I'm sure the union protects him from getting fired. Everytime I see some asshat public employee - cop, teacher, firefighter, gubmint get protected from the consequences of doing stuff like this (which I would be so fired for) I think the union ought to have to reimburse the public. Cops shoot 2 middle aged asian women when the suspect was a young black guy - hey union pony up! We have teachers here in LA who have been collecting salaries for years but aren't allowed in a classroom and the district can't fire them because UNION RULES. Fine union, you payout next time a teacher diddles a student.......

Ok


But but, we need them cause of the Muslims. I have it on good authority that Bush never allowed a terrorist attack within the US after 9/11. So basically we've gotten lucky because they're still scared cause of Bush, but who knows when a real threat will come along and they can just zip up their flies and prevent it. You need them on that wall!!!!

(Caveat: Until it becomes convenient to say it's the EPA's fault and not the extra guys we added arbitrarily to every government agency in the name of security. Then we can blame it on the liberals and get all outraged.)

Whenever I was issued a company laptop I never looked at any porn, plenty of fark but no porn. I even got a compliment by the IT guys when I would return them about how clean they were and no porn. They told me one of the senrior partners was into some kinky shiat but they never told me what one or what he was into.

I was working a remote superfund project where we had a satellite internet set up at the camp. Turns out that when working 6 10s out in the wilderness in a camp full of men, there is a lot of porn consumed. The EPA rep in charge pf the site was however, not a man, and after a weird series of events that started with a wrecked septic truck she decided that she was going to confiscate every one of the worker's personal computers and search them for porn, and anyone caught with porn on their computer was going to be removed from site. Ultimately she backed down, but at least one person at the EPA takes porn very seriously.

Never again will I work a job where I have to have a serious discussion with my manager how to hide our porn consumption from the government.
