Deputy Press Secretary for Homeland Security Arrested on Pedophile Charge

Once again, DHS Director Michael Chertoff has shown us he hires high ranking employees without vetting them, then proceeds to let them run amok without anyone being accountable.
The deputy press secretary for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security was arrested Tuesday for using the Internet to seduce what he thought was a teenage girl, authorities said.
Brian J. Doyle, 55, was arrested in Maryland where he lives on charges of use of a computer to seduce a child and transmission of harmful material to a minor. The charges were issued out of Polk County, Fla.
Doyle, of Silver Spring, Md., had a sexually explicit conversation with what he believed was a 14-year-old girl whose profile he saw on the Internet on March 14, the Polk County Sheriff's Office said in a statement. The girl was an undercover Polk County Sheriff's Computer Crimes detective, the sheriff's office said. He also gave the girl his home phone number and his DHS-issued cell phone number.
I know a female DHS agent who poses as an underage kid and monitors Internet chatrooms and IM's, specifically looking for pedophiles.
Little did she know she could have landed one just by calling the Home Office.
Is anyone else besides me feeling like the Department of Homeland Security is the biggest government boondoggle in American history?
It's the place to work if you're a lazy, shiftless, career civil servant with psychiatric problems.
You're doin' a heckuva job, Cherty.

Mr Doyle is disgusting! Soliciting a young teen for sex is just yucky!
Horrible man!

He is also stupid. We hear it almost nightly that law enforcement conducts these stings on the internet? Did he ever even think of that?! Big dummy!

So, Chertoff hires someone who is both disgusting and stupid.

I wish I was surprised, but this is business as usual for the "We're bringing integrity back." Republicans.

Oh, I feel so much safer now.

It's quite embarrassing. He was right under their noses the whole time. No one has said yet whether this is the first time he's tried this or not.

But keep in mind, there are alot of folks who work in government who got swept up under the huge umbrella of DHS when it was created -- most of whom do an excellent job [including yours truly].

OK..what really makes this even worse is the jackass told the kid what his job was and where he worked..he told her(the cop actually) in both an IM and a phone conversation...

Who else is this jackass talking to about his job? Who else is posing as a child to trap pedophiles into providing information when the poseur finds out they have a "live one" with ties to our federal government. Talk about fodder for a blackmail scheme..this guy was a dipshit extraordinaire all the way around.

Anyone- and I do mean ANYONE- in a high ranking position in the DHS realizes that former Treasury agents (now DHS Agents) are tasked full-time with monitoring the Internet for pedophiles.
This son of a bitch is like so many pedophiles- they think the rules don't apply to them because their sexual attraction to children is somehow "special."
May he be tried, convicted and sentenced to the most brutal, rape happy prison in America.
I wish I could personally horsewhip him. said...

Chari...every time you see one of this sick bastards doing the perp walk or giving a press conference or something, it's ALWAYS their first time doing this...yeah, B. as in B., and S. as in S.

It's the big myth that Repubs are fine upstanding sexually repressed do-gooders. Wiki has info to the contrary...check it out...

There's shit on there that'll turn your stomach.

If it were MY daughter, I'd be looking at my Louisville Slugger. A bullet is too quick. Takes all the fun out of it.

Holy Toledo, Doggo! That link was hair-raising.
Some of those GOP creeps should be beat with a bat, I agree.
