Somebody's been trying to view porn in the courtroom according to an investigation by the Chicago Sun-Times. Judge Joseph Polito, a Will County judge, in northern Illinois, has a county owned computer on the bench in his courtroom. Someone has tried to log into 243 porn sites but failed because of filtering software.
Judge Polito isn't fessing up to the crime, but somebody has tried to view chubbyparade.com, hugeheavybreasts.com, bigbras-club.com, portofdebauchery.com and teenagesextape.com, among others.
The most interesting part of this is that the Chicago Sun-Times used the Freedom of Information Act to gain access to the website logs, but the Chief Judge fought the disclosure saying the logs were judcial records and not subject to public scrutinty. The Illinois Attorney General ruled otherwise and the newspaper got the information. A wise decision. Government employees should be accountable for their taxpayer funded salaries and use of publicly funded office quipment. That type of behavior is theft and the person responsible should be held accountable.
