Government Worker Watches 39 Hours Of Porn At Work… In Two Weeks

Government Worker Fired Over Porn Viewing

A Baltimore City employee has been terminated from his job after he watched 39 hours of porn at work.. in just a two-week period.

The employee, a former member of the Department of Public Works, was fired after his fellow employees documented his porn viewing and reported his behavior.

When their complaint was received the Office of Information Technology began to monitor the employee’s work activities through a monitoring device secretly installed on his computer. Researchers found that the employee consumed the equivalent of 39 hours of porn on a DVD he brought to the office.

The hours spent watching the video equaled $1,166 in salary.

According to Inspector General Robert Pearre, Jr., Baltimore City has a policy against any government employee using office equipment for non-city functions. He insists that the employee would have been terminated even if the porn was replaced with sports or other non-work videos.

The report suggests that the employee was watching the videos in full-screen mode, implying “little to no work was being performed during the time that pornographic material was visible on the screen.”

The employee was given an initial suspension in September and was officially fired on January 20, 2015.
