Congressional Sex Blog Posting Uproar

By Deane Barker on May 21, 2004

Senator undecided over whether to fire aide for sex ‘blog’: There’s a lot of debate in this article about on exactly what grounds this woman can be fired. How about gross lack of judgement? I’m not critiquing anyone’s personal life except to say that a congressional aide lives in something of a fishbowl, and she really should have kept that in mind.

Sen. Mike DeWine said Thursday that he has not decided whether to fire an aide who allegedly posted her exploits in an Internet diary, including accepting $400 from a married man for sex.

“We’re in the process of completing a review,” the Ohio Republican said. “It’s a personnel matter.”



  1. Well, frankly anyone who visit any sex related websites at work in my opionion is just opening themselves up for scrutiny. That being said, most of our customers place orders for our website during their workday, I can only imagine what other “adult related” websites they are visiting.

    What ever happened to free will? :)

  2. I have to agree with John, its not very wise to look at adult content during work hours, did you read about the british social workers getting fired for looking at porn while at work? What were they thinking?!
