Life Is Short, Have An Affair, Let Taxpayers Help Pay For It

An extra-marital affair seems like asking for trouble, like walking through a minefield. If two consenting adults who are married to one another both agree that extra-marital affairs are OK then maybe an affair could be justified. However, I can imagine many mines along the way. Who am I to judge? Yet the Ashley Madison website just seems sleazy. The fact that federal employees frequent the site also seems sleazy. The fact that visitations to the site happen on government equipment while government workers are supposed to be working is very wrong.

From Federal workers with sensitive jobs used cheating website:

U.S. government employees with sensitive jobs in national security or law enforcement were among hundreds of federal workers found to be using government networks to access and pay membership fees to the cheating website Ashley Madison, The Associated Press has learned.

The list includes at least two assistant U.S. attorneys, an information technology administrator in the White House's support staff, a Justice Department investigator, a division chief, and a government hacker and counterterrorism employee at the Homeland Security Department. Others visited from networks operated by the Pentagon.
The Pentagon and Homeland Security?
Federal policies vary by agency as to whether employees could visit websites during work hours like Ashley Madison, which could be considered akin to a dating website. But such use raises questions about what personal business is acceptable — and what websites are OK to visit — for U.S. workers on taxpayer time, especially those with sensitive jobs who could face blackmail.
I really can't think of a better response to this than: WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?!?!?!?!?
