Leaked FBI reports have revealed some less than intelligent behavior from agency employees. Between 2010-2012, the FBI disciplined 1,045 of their employees and fired 85 of them for a wide range of behaviors—ranging from "sexting" on company phones, to paying for sex, to dating drug dealers. The charges include one woman who was fired for lying about her relationship "with a former boyfriend (now husband) knowing he was a drug user/dealer," as well as several officers who were arrested for DUI charges. Another employee was reportedly subdued by police after a drunken domestic dispute in which they "refused to relinquish their weapon." Other charges include possession of child pornography, paying for sex in massage parlors and a "rash of sexting cases" that involved texting naked photos via company Blackberrys. "We're hoping (that) getting the message out in the quarterlies is going to teach people, as well as their supervisors...you can't do this stuff," says FBI assistant director Candace Will. "When you are given an FBI BlackBerry, it's for official use. It's not to text the woman in another office who you found attractive or to send a picture of yourself in a state of undress. That is not why we provide you an FBI BlackBerry." The incidents were detailed in quarterly emails sent to employees cautioning them to "steer clear of ethical pitfalls and other violations."
