Will County Judge Admits to On-the-Job Porn Viewing

Judge Joseph Polito says he watched porn on his courthouse computer before and after court sessions, even though he knew it violated county rules, published report says.

Will County Judge Joseph Polito says he watched pornography on his computer during work hours and is now seeking help to stop his behavior, a story in the Chicago Sun-Times says.

Polito made the confession in documents he filed with the Illinois Courts Commission in the wake of a Sun-Times report four months ago that his computer had been used repeatedly to view porn sites. Charges have been filed against him by the Illinois Judicial Inquiry Board.

Polito admitted viewing pornography before and after court calls, even though he was aware there was a county policy against viewing such materials on county computers, the story said.

Polito's attorney, in the documents filed with the commission, said Polito “has been treated by two licensed professionals on a regular basis and has participated in two separate support groups,” the story said.

Viewing porn is not what we taxpayers are paying for. He should resign!

I love how everything people do these days that is wrong, they make into an illness! Have a sex addiction on your own dime and time judge! Not taxpayers!
