    EPA employee saved the planet by watching 7000 hours of porn...and still has his job

    Mass. Governor Patrick would call these examples of a public sector out of control, as "anecdotal" !


    An EPA employee has been viewing pornography while at work, and has even received performance awards for his time at the agency. The employee was even watching porn when inspector general agents visited his office. The employee had 7,000 porn files on his computer and had been watching porn for two to six hours per day since 2010. This employee still works at the EPA.


     


    Another EPA employee was actually selling jewelry and weight loss pills out of her office. Renee Page is the director of the the agency’s Office of Administration, but that didn’t stop her from using her from selling her own products during business hours using her government email account, according to the OIG.


     


    Page also hired 17 of her family members and friends as paid interns. She also paid her daughter — who also works at the EPA — from her agency’s budget account. But instead of being punished, Page received a prestigious Presidential Rank Award in 2010, for which she got $35,000 in cash.


     


    The House committee was looking into the EPA’s so-called Office of Homeland Security that has been stymying internal agency investigations on employee misconduct. The hearing highlighted several cases where EPA employees were saying they were working when they weren’t.


     


    “[T}he OIG conducted an investigation into serious misconduct by another EPA manager who allowed an employee to stay at home and not report for duty for several years,” said deputy assistant inspector general Allan Williams. Based on a long-standing arrangement with the employee… this EPA manager not only entered fraudulent time-and-attendance records for the absent employee but also approved the same fraudulent records.”


     


    “It is estimated that the manager’s approval of fraudulent time-and-attendance records cost the government more than $500,000,” Williams added. “Even more egregious is that this EPA manager authored and approved exemplary performance appraisals that resulted in a cash award for the absent employee.”


     


    On Tuesday the Associated Press reported that a unit within the EPA run by President Obama’s political staff has been operating illegally as a “rogue law enforcement agency,” blocking inspector general efforts to conduct investigations.

    One EPA worker was doing his job single-handedly and another was a criminal. Is even the Mighty CLC out of things to rant about?


     


     


     


    You know, I hear this other guy in the FBI. Why, he spilled his coffee. ON A $5000 computer!


     




    "Anecdotal", you are saying, then?


    No big deal.....now, if he didnt pay his union dues or didnt "volunteer" to hold up a sign for the Democratic pol during the campaign, he might get in some trouble....


     


    Why wasnt this employee fired?

    I obviously can't stop you from claiming that a sample size of three is sufficient to indict the entire EPA, by extension, the entire government, and everyone who isn't a super far-right conservative. But I can shake my head and move on...  



    I have an inside source...a family member who works for the state of Mass......the sample size there is quite large, and quite interesting...


    The public sector does not work for us;  the public sector is now the master , and we poor private sector suckers work for them...

    So, your whole family is on the public payroll, then.  


    Do they know how indiscriminately and viciously you bash public employees on this board...?

    Clearly...surfing the net at work is not limited to those in the public sector...if you need evidence of that all you have to do is look at this forum :P

    [QUOTE]


    People waste 8 hrs/week surfing the web while at work ... kinda like you on these boards.


    Are you just a better person even though you regularly waste your employer's money?




    Surfing the web is one thing. Watching porn and downloading said porn onto your computer is another thing. Although I guess it's ok since porn sites never have viruses. 


     /QUOTE]


    Well..that's a good point..lol. So..are you advocating porn sites as a form of "safe surfing"???

    I was actually being sarcastic about some of those type of sites not having viruses. 





I know..I was trying to make a joke...but clearly didn't word it well and no way I can think of to word it on a public forum..

    Not nearly as much as some on the public payroll, who actually know how bad the system is out of control...and know better than to say anything for fear of losing their job....better off watching porn than dropping a dime on the abuses...


    Howie Carr has made a good living mocking the hacks,  but even he only has scratched the surface and will never run out of material....


    But, hey, it is all "anecdotal" ......

    They even gave him bonuses based on his performance. What a way to save the world.

    Find me a company that employees as many people as the EPA where similar wrongdoing doesn't happen from time to time.





    In the dreaded private sector, people actually get fired for such offenses. Short of first degree murder, you cant get yourself fired from a hack public sector position. Thanks to the wonderful public sector unions.

    Wait a second ... Lerner dropped a dime on the IRS and you wingnuts want to throw her in jail.  How does that fit your bass ackwards narrative?


     


     


    Which is worse, someone working in the public sector who believes they are making a positive contribution, your attacks notwithstanding or the kind of public sector workers whom you support, those who 'know' they are part of a problem but refuse to say anything yet still collect a public sector paycheck. Hint: Usually the people say they are in "fear of losing their job" if they speak up, are usually the ones who actually should lose their job.



    Okey dokey, mr public sector hack, er , one making a "positive contribution"....dont know what we would do without our untold thousands of liberal public servants telling us how indispensible they are.
