Homeland Security Press Secretary Arrested

Homeland Security Press Secretary Arrested
By HOWARD ALTMAN of The Tampa Tribune

Published: Apr 5, 2006

A Department of Homeland Security press secretary was arrested this evening on charges that he was using a computer to seduce a child.

Brian Doyle, 50, was arrested at 7:45 p.m. in his Silver Springs, Maryland home on 23 charges related to the use of a computer to seduce a child and transmitting harmful materials to a minor after a joint investigation by the Polk County Sheriff’s office, Florida State Attorney Jerry Hill’s office and the Department of Homeland Security.

“We take these allegations very seriously and will cooperate fully with the ongoing investigation,” DHS spokesman Russ Knocke said in a telephone interview.

Doyle allegedly met someone on the internet he thought was a 14-year-old girl and “initiated a sexually explicit conversation with her,” according to a press release issued by the Polk County sheriff’s office. “The girl was actually an undercover Polk County Sheriff’s computer crimes detective. Doyle knew that the girl was 14 years old, and he told her who he was that that he worked for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. During future online chats, Doyle gave the undercover detective posing as a 14-year-old girl his office phone number and his government-issued cell phone number.”

Doyle “used the internet to send hard-core pornographic movie clips to the girl and used the AOL Instant Messenger chat service to have explicit sexual conversations with her.” He also “instructed the victim…to perform a sexual act while thinking of him and descried explicit and perverse sexual acts he wished to have with her, in addition to sending her numerous obscene digital movies. He also had sexually explicit telephone conversations with a detective posing as a child…and encouraged her to purchase a web cam so that she could send graphic images of herself to him and promised her that he would likewise send nude photos of himself.”

Doyle’s home computer and other materials were seized, according to the release. Doyle is charged with seven counts of Use of a Computer to Seduce a Child and 16 counts of Transmission of Harmful Material to a Minor. Doyle was booked into the Montgomery County Jail, where he is awaiting extradition to Polk County.

Doyle has been at the Department of Homeland Security since it was created in 2002. He started as a spokesperson for the Transportation Safety Administration.

“We will go after child predators, no matter where they live, to protect our innocent children,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said in the release. “This investigation shows that the long arm of the law can reach anyone, anywhere, anytime, who tries to harm our youth. There is no question that Doyle believed that he was having these disgusting, obscene discussion, online and on the phone, with a young girl. His conduct is vile and inexcusable.”

I'm sure he'll be quickly replaced by someone who cheats on his income taxes or something.

You know, this guy has to be a complete idiot. Does he not read the newspaper or watch the news about the aggressive presence of police nationwide and worldwide on the net, catching these people.

And second, for being a part of DHS, the guy is exponentially a dumbass. You'd think he would be a little more covert.

Maybe I'm not doing it right but I've never 'met' somebody on the internet that I didn't already know in real life.

Hey, I just noticed this part:

...and he told her who he was that that he worked for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. During future online chats, Doyle gave the undercover detective posing as a 14-year-old girl his office phone number and his government-issued cell phone number.

This is honestly one of the most disturbing news stories I've read in a while.

What idiot tells a 14-year old that they're the press secretary for DHS?

Disgusting.

Puh-lease. Like the President shouldn't, fair or not, take the hit when the people he is in charge of steals from Wal-Mart or attempts to seduce 14 year old girls.

This was the administration that was supposed to come in and clean up Washington DC after those terrible Clinton years.

How do you know which party he belongs to?
If Doyle happens to be a Democrat, you're telling people that Democrats are not capable to defend this country?

Umm, Bush giving medals to wanks that don't deserve it doesn't have a thing to do with their party affiliation and has nothing to do with being pro-molestation.

Pro-incompetence, yes!

This is a quote from an article about Doyle and the other idiots at the DHS.

Considering that these are the people entrusted with keeping us safe, we should probably be prepared for just about anything.
I bet the author didn't even see this one coming.

The question was answered.

Maybe you missed the "has nothing to do with being pro-molestation" part of the reply. That is, in case you missed it, I didn't suggest he was pro-molestation in the first place. Just an uncanny ability of standing by or awarding people who screw up. (Brownie, Rumsfeld, Bremer, etc)

Are we now back on topic, or, more specifically, what your idea of the topic is?

I can see how Presidents of every party sneak in pardons before they head out of town and praising Brownie for the spectacular job done with Katrina, giving a medal to the man who said it was a slam dunk, and keeping on the man, Rumsfeld, who more and more military are saying deserves most of the blame for the failure to have a plan (and what he did plan ended up screwing things up) for post war Iraq compares to one another.

This is typical, but not unexpected. I bet the thing you're most eager for in '08 isn't another Republican presidential victory, but the chance to come here not long afterwards and post the non-existant list of extremely questionable pardons from Mr. Bush. However, there will be plenty of them and, honestly, they really won't have anything to do with his performance during the 8 years he was our President.

Guys, comments like this really have nothing to do with the topic and only serve to deteriorate discussion. Please try to stay on topic and off the partisan rhetoric.

I think Robo was joking.
It is Bush's fault that they hired him despite the guy answering "Yes" to the question "Do you molest kids?" on his job application.
