With the second man, the threat is neutralized as well. The fact that the community is aware of his status as a child molester "mitigated the security concerns" that this could be used to manipulate the applicant into exposing secrets. Further support for granting clearance lies in the favorable medical prognosis. Any moral argument based on violation of the incest taboo is debatable; that the victim was a step-child partially"mitigates" the crime, and the recognition of wrong doing completes the transformation into a worthy risk.

In an appalling example of government negligence, the U.S. Census Bureau has hired hundreds of serious criminals to enter the homes of unsuspecting Americans to gather statistics for the 2010 count.
The astounding information was made public this week in a detailed congressional report that reveals the troubled bureau failed to adequately conduct mandatory background checks for tens of thousands of census workers, clearing hundreds of violent criminals in the process.
Congressional investigators found that more than 35,000 temporary census workers were hired without the proper criminal background check, which includes fingerprinting. That means that more than one-fifth of the canvassing workforce did not get properly processed or fully screened for employment eligibility, creating an obvious security risk.
More than 200 of those were subsequently determined to have criminal records yet were in constant contact with the public while canvassing for the ongoing 2010 census. Investigators say the criminal record checks were bungled because the bureau’s incompetent staff was poorly trained to conduct them.

I have a solid background, prior law enforcement, solid private sector etc...However, I have almost $90K in unpaid medical bills due to getting shot in Iraq...I'm still concerned that I may get denied a clearance dut to this and it frustrates me to see some of the idiots that get clearances...Anyone have any knowledge of how they look at credit issues such as this?
