  • What's this world coming to?

    MIAMI - A deputy press secretary for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security was charged with using a computer to seduce a child after authorities said he struck up sexual conversations with an undercover detective posing as a 14-year-old girl.


    Brian J. Doyle, 55, the fourth-ranking official in the department's public affairs office, was expected to appear in court Wednesday afternoon in Maryland and also to be placed on administrative leave.

    "He said last night that he was going to waive extradition. If he does that, we may have him back by the end of the week," Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said Wednesday. "He could get to court today and some lawyer may say 'no, you don't want to do that.' The bottom line is we don't know when he's coming back."

    Authorities arrested Doyle on Tuesday at his Silver Spring, Md., home as he was online with the "girl." The undercover detective had called Doyle at work and said she got a Web camera, as he had asked her to do, and wanted to test it out, said Carrie Rodgers, Polk County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman.

    "He said he would get on the computer when he got home from work so we knew he would be on," Rodgers said. "When (police) went to his door, he was on the computer in the middle of a conversation with the girl."

    White House press secretary Scott McClellan called it "a very serious matter."

    "I know that the Department of Homeland Security have said they will cooperate fully in the investigation," McClellan said aboard Air Force One as the president was en route to Connecticut for a health care speech. "The individual who was arrested is someone who is a civil servant, and my understanding is that the Department of Homeland Security has placed that individual on administrative leave. These are very serious allegations."

    Homeland Security press secretary Russ Knocke in Washington said he could not comment on the details of the investigation.

    "We take these allegations very seriously, and we will cooperate fully with this ongoing investigation," Knocke said.

    Doyle found the teenager's profile online and began having sexually explicit conversations with her on the Internet on March 14, the sheriff's office said in a statement.

    He sent her pornographic movie clips, as well as non-sexual photos of himself, officials said. One of the photos, released by the sheriff's office, shows Doyle in what appears to be DHS headquarters. He is wearing a Homeland Security pin on his lapel and a lanyard that says " TSA."

    The Transportation Security Administration is part of the Homeland Security Department.

    During online conversations, Doyle revealed his name, who he worked for and offered his office and government-issued cell phone numbers, the sheriff's office said.

    On several occasions, Doyle instructed her to perform a sexual act while thinking of him and described explicit activities he wanted to have with her, investigators said.

    He was booked into the Montgomery County Detention Center. Doyle also faces a charge of transmission of harmful material to a minor.

    There was no immediate response to messages left on Doyle's government-issued cell phone and his e-mail, and he could not be reached by phone at the jail for comment.

    tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of

            All I have to say is Ouch. I have a daughter and will have to teach her when she gets older to be very careful when chatting online. Everything is not always what it seems.
