Chaffetz Targets EPA Employee Misconduct

House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz launches a bipartisan inquiry into accusations that the Environmental Protection Agency failed to terminate employees guilty of sexual harassment and watching pornography on the job.

Reports The Hill:

One employee who was accused of sexually harassing 17 women, including two at the White House, was allowed to stay on the job and eventually retire before talking to investigators, officials from the Office of Inspector General (OIG) told the committee. Two others were accused of viewing pornography at work, including one who was witnessed by a child, but they, too, remained on the payroll for several months.

“The EPA and others, we have a duty and obligation to the American taxpayer to fire the people who are abusing the system,” Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said. “Get rid of them, kick them out of there.”
