Internal FBI report finds sexting, porn too common among staff

By Daniel Levine,

An internal FBI report has found that there are far too many examples of sexting and nude photos being sent around among employees.

CNN has obtained a copy of the report, which shows a “rash of sexting cases.” By releasing the report, FBI assistant director Candice Will said that she hopes to put a stop to it.

“We're hoping (that) getting the message out in the quarterlies is going to teach people, as well as their supervisors ... you can't do this stuff,” Will told CNN. “When you are given an FBI BlackBerry, it's for official use. It's not to text the woman in another office who you found attractive or to send a picture of yourself in a state of undress. That is not why we provide you an FBI BlackBerry.”

The FBI, which employs 36,000 people, says that 1,045 were disciplined from 2010 to 2012 and 85 were fired.

The report (which you can read here) doesn’t reveal names or any specific job titles, but it does detail individual cases.

One employee had a relationship with a man who turned out to be a drug dealer. “Employee also lied under oath when questioned during the administrative inquiry about her husband's activities,” the report reads.

Other cases included an employee spying on his or her boss with an unauthorized recording device and another frequently “committed check fraud and lacked candor under oath.”

As The New York Post notes, in one case found, an FBI employee was found “purchasing and viewing DVDs of naked boys.”

In all of the above cases, the employee was fired.

Other cases, such as staffers sending nude photographs and going to a massage parlor to pay for a sexual favor, resulted in suspensions.

“It is important to note that the ratio of disciplinary issues among FBI agents are among the lowest in the federal government and private sector,” the president of the FBI Agents Association said in a statement to CNN.
