When Government Officials Want To Satisfy Their Public Self-Abuse Needs...

... it seems that Idaho Falls is the place to go. From this weird article in the Idaho Statesman:
Boise International Airport Federal Security Director Doug Melvin resigned Tuesday citing personal reasons, the Transportation Security Administration announced.
Melvin's resignation follows an indecent exposure citation he received last week at an Idaho Falls hotel.
According to police reports, Melvin, 48, was cited for indecent exposure while staying at the Fairfield Inn on Feb. 19.
The report says Melvin entered the swimming pool area, removed his clothing, walked around nude and exposed himself to other hotel patrons and staff.
The report says Melvin reportedly masturbated while in front of pool-area windows directly in view of the main elevator.
Melvin was then escorted to his room where "he admitted to having a swimming suit, but failing to utilize it when in the pool area," the Idaho Falls Police Department report said.
And what could have caused this lapse in judgment?
The police report lists alcohol as a factor in the incident.
Do ya think?

Want to bet that he got his job because of a campaign contribution?

"Melvin was then escorted to his room where "he admitted to having a swimming suit, but failing to utilize it when in the pool area," the Idaho Falls Police Department report said."

That statement couldn't be more bureaucratic if they tried. Good stuff. That's like writing a report on battery that states "Subject had alternative means of conflict resolution but failed to maximize their effectiveness. Subject then engaged in pugilism."

axwkvsgxOh fine, blame it on alcohol. It wasn't because he was a wacko, or some other problem, he was just drunk. Everything bad happens when somebody is drunk; nothing bad happens if the person isn't drunk.

It can't be because the DHS hired any fracking loser who wandered into the hiring zone at the time the DHS was under the gun to staff up.

Reminds me of a deck log comment...

"PO Smith and SN Jones returned late from liberty at 0905 suffering from the effects of, and smelling of, intoxicating beverage."

Imagine how polluted they must have been for it to be notable!
