Porn Still a Fed Problem

It seems that viewing pornography is still a problem for some of those among the Federal ranks.

At the National Science Foundation, whistleblowers told Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, there are continuing pornography viewing problems at the agency, The Washington Times reported on Wednesday.

Then at the Defense Department the Pentagon reopened an investigation involving more than 250 Defense employees who are alleged to have subscribed to child pornography using their government e-mail IDs and physical military addresses, ComputerWorld reported on Wednesday.

Last year, The Washington Times reported the rampant watching of pornography at NSF, including one senior executive who spent at least 331 days looking at pornography on his government computer and chatting online with nude or partially clad women without being detected.

The executive even defended his actions by suggesting that he frequented the porn sites to provide a living to the poor women overseas, The Washington Times reported.
