The answer, it turns out, is four. A worker at the Environmental Protection Agency surfed for porn an average of four hours per working day. The worker makes $120,000 — they’re clearly not earning that sum, which is well above the national average — and received a bonus.

The Washington Free Beacon first noticed the EPA’s admission.

Rep. John Mica (R., Fla) questioned Allan Williams, the deputy assistant inspector general for investigations at the House Oversight Committee over the employees’ “work activities.”

“So this guy is making $120,000, spending two to six hours a day looking at porno. Then this information I have is he received performance awards during the time period?” Mica asked Williams.

Williams responded, “Uh, he possibly did. Yes, sir.”

Mica, frustrated with Williams’ inadequate answer, told him that a gentleman in the back of the room was nodding his head in response to his question, prompting Williams to finally admit “He did receive performance awards.”

What sort of performance did the US government reward?
