Government workers admit that they spend hours every week watching Pr0n on the internet; but they say it’s only because they’re bored and there isn’t enough work to do. (Warning, really frakking annoying autoplay at link)
For one Federal Communications Commission worker, his porn habit at work was easy to explain: Things were slow, he told investigators, so he perused it “out of boredom” — for up to eight hours each week.
Lack of work has emerged time and again in federal investigations, and it’s not just porn, nor is it confined to the FCC. Across government, employees caught wasting time at work say they simply didn’t have enough work to do, according to investigation records obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.
“He stated he is aware it is against government rules and regulations, but he often does not have enough work to do and has free time,” investigators wrote of another federal employee, this one at the Treasury Department, who viewed more than 13,000 pornographic images in a six-week span.
Investigations at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Commerce Department and the General Services Administration have turned up similar cases, though memos show the employees rarely face criminal prosecution for time and attendance fraud.
And yet the Democrats whine constantly that “austerity” is crippling the Federal Government because bureaucrats don’t have enough money to do whatever it is their jobs are.
Frankly, I prefer them watching Pr0n to doing more tyrannical things like SWAT-teaming homes to confiscate cars that the EPA thinks might… might… violate their precious emission standards and make the polar bears cry. (They let illegal immigrants run amok, but God help any American citizen that has a car that might be more polluty than the EPA allows.)
