"How much pornography would it take for an EPA employee to lose their job?" Darrell Issa, (R-CA) Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, asked EPA officials at a hearing yesterday, where it emerged that an EPA employee viewed two to six hours of porn per day since 2010.
The employee has over 7,000 porn files on his computer and evenwatched porn when inspector general agents visited his office, Deputy Assistant Inspector General Allan Williams testified in a statement submitted to the committee. He makes over $120,000 a year and he even received performance awards for his time at the agency. And this man is still employed at the EPA, even though he confessed to the time he spent viewing the pornography.
Issa pointedly asked EPA officials whether it was a crime to falsify documents (timesheets), but the officials declined to answer.
