Busted EPA Porn-Surfing Worker Is STILL Collecting $120,000 Salary


Outrageous:

A congressional committee grilled leaders of the Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday following reports that an agency employee confessed to spending between two and six hours per day viewing pornography on his government-issued computer during work hours.

Witnesses in the House Oversight and Government Reform committee hearing confirmed that the worker, whose name has not been disclosed, is still receiving his $120,000 salary and continues to have access to EPA computers.

When an investigator went to interview him, he was at his desk surfing sexually explicit websites.

‘How much pornography would it take for an EPA employee to lose their job?’ asked an incredulous Rep. Darrell Issa, the California Republican who chairs the committee.

File this under the category of “when bureaucracies get way too big.”
Here’s the best part:
And EPA Deputy Inspector General Patrick Sullivan confirmed that the employee ‘did receive performance awards,’ merit based prizes, during the months he was found to be surfing porn at taxpayer expense
Now, to be fair, if he gets his job done well, I could see giving him a bonus. But if he’s only working a few hours a day — it appears he spends 2 to 6 hours per day surfing porn — it sure seems like his job isn’t necessary.
Time to fire him and his boss.
