Federal employees shouldn't watch hours upon hours of porn at work, according to a new bill from Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.).
The Eliminating Pornography from Agencies Act would try to stop federal employees from accessing, watching, or sharing pornography on government- issued computers and devices.
The inspiration for the bill, said Meadows in a release, came from Inspector General reports on the Environmental Protection Agency. The IG found multiple cases of EPA employees working hard at watching porn.
A 2006 Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigation into the purchase of child pornography online turned up more than 250 civilian and military employees of the Defense Department -- including some with the highest available security clearance -- who used credit cards or PayPal to purchase images of children in sexual situations. But the Pentagon investigated only a handful of the cases, Defense Department records show.
On top of the damage a co-worker who watches porn at work does to office morale, it's a safety issue.

Do we really need a bill for this?!
Must be that small government approach.
Jabs aside, pretty sure they could take care of this with out wasting our dime putting this bill through the works to get passed.
