GOP Congressman Files Bill to Block Porn at Federal Workplaces

Republican Congressman Mark Meadows (NC) has introduced his Eliminating Pornography from Agencies Act this week, which would make it very naughty, and prevent government employees from having access to porn or other “explicit material” while they are working on “government computers and devices.”

Meadows mentioned in a press release the incident where an EPA employee was caught viewing a daily 6 hour dose of pornography, as well as downloading thousands of “pornographic files on to government computer.”

Last year, an Inspector General report revealed that one Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) employee, who still has his job, was viewing as much as 6 hours of pornography a day in his office on his government computer.

The same federal employee was found to have downloaded as many as 7,000 pornographic files onto his government computer. To date, this employee has yet to be fired and we continue to learn of similar bad actors.

“While there are rules in place at most agencies to ban this kind of unprofessional and potentially hostile workplace behavior, it continues to take place. There is absolutely no excuse for federal employees to be viewing and downloading pornographic materials on the taxpayers’ dime…“Further, downloading these files, which are often ridden with viruses and malware, poses a cybersecurity threat at our federal agencies. This commonsense legislation ensures that federal workers have a comfortable, safe work environment and protects taxpayer resources from being misused.”-Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC)

There is no word yet of whether or not former President Bill Clinton, who may have a thing or two to say about this, will oppose or support Meadows’ bill.
