    Anything and everything you do at work, with the exception of going to the restroom, is subject to your employer's scrutiny.

    I don't think they really hold them to any higher degree. It's just convenient to link personal character to party or personal policies. Leverage and all that...

    At some point though, you go home and that is NOT subject to your employer's scrutiny. So it really only works as an analogy for Weiner if he Tweeted these pictures from the floor of the House.

    Not saying that changes anything, just saying that at some point these guys go home too. Where their lives are not our business.

    No. Absolutely not. If I, a constituent, email my representative, I don't want it getting in the public. I don't care if they hide my name and email. Politicians are people too.

    If you work on the public dollar your emails should remain public. If you have a private email account that you use on an e-device that should remain private.

    So since I am a federal employee my emails should be public then? Really... can we stop with all this anti government nonsense.

    Yes
    No
    Maybe/I do not know



    I say yes.What they do with tax payer funded property while on the clock working for the tax payer is the business of the tax payer.
    Personally I am of the opinion that the government should not be keeping any secrets from citizens beyond that of what pertains to the military tactics and technological wise and current troop movements (movements should be kept secret only until roughly 1 year after that troop movement is done with).
