I was talking to a friend on a landline last night in San Francisco, he has neither a cell phone, or a computer and so communications with him are initiated at a leisurely pace and happen infrequently.

I was teasing him about it all and saying something about blogging and he asked, “Hey, speaking of blogging is it true that some assistant director of Homeland Security is being extradited to Texas or somewhere on child pornography charges having to do with the internet, or is that just a blog thing?”

I said, well it sounds like a blog thing, who would be stupid enough to…

But after we stopped talking I got curious and did a NYT’s search and…

23 counts?! Houston, we have a problem with these people in charge of our security. When I called my friend back and told him that this had happened, he wanted to know why there weren't big headlines about it.

Official Resists Extradition on Charge Involving Internet and Sex

WASHINGTON, April 5 — The Department of Homeland Security's deputy press secretary appeared in a Maryland state court on Wednesday and refused extradition to Florida, where he faces charges of using the Internet to seduce someone he thought was a 14-year-old girl.

The press official, Brian J. Doyle, was arrested Tuesday night in his home in Silver Spring, Md., after nearly a month of computer contact with a Polk County detective who was posing as a teenager. Mr. Doyle now faces 23 counts of using a computer to seduce a child and transmission of harmful material to a minor. Under Florida law, each count is a third-degree felony that carries a five-year prison term.
