Congressman Condemns: Federal Workers Allowed To Watch Porn On Taxpayer Time
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) this week proposed new legislation aimed at stopping government employees from accessing pornography or other supposedly not-safe-for-work content while using government computers or equipment.
Meadows's bill is the Eliminating Pornography from Agencies act, or the EPA Act. The acronym is dig at the Environmental Protection Agency, since a report found that one EPA worker was watching as much as six hours of porn a day in his government office.
An official with the EPA's Office of Inspector General said that when an OIG official met with this employee, "the special agent witnessed the employee actively viewing pornography on his government-issued computer."
