They Need a Law to Prevent Gov’t Workers from Looking at Porn All Day?

Eric Katz of Government Executive writes that Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., has:

… introduced a bill to “prohibit the access of a pornographic or other explicit website from a federal computer.”

You might think that this is the sort of thing that wouldn’t require legislation.  Most federal employees would simply understand that while the public (their employer) expects a certain amount of loafing and a lot of make-work activity from federal employees, there is a limit.  And if a worker doesn’t understand, then a supervisor somewhere will, of course, make things clear.  “Find another way to waste taxpayer money, or you’re fired.”
