Sometimes, you are simply caught red handed.

Such was the case with an employee at the Environmental Protection Agency when an investigator from the inspector general's office came in to follow up on a tip. The investigator was looking into whether the employee was actually storing pornographic material on a network server shared with co-workers.

 

When the investigator came in for the interview, the employee in question was "actively viewing porn on his government-issued computer," Deputy Assistant Inspector General for Investigations Allan Williams told a congressional committee Wednesday.

Apparently seeing little way to plead innocence, the employee "confessed to spending, on average, between two and six hours per day viewing pornography while at work." Investigators later found the employee had downloaded and viewed more than 7,000 pornographic files during duty hours.

The Justice Department has taken over the case for prosecution.
