Porn sting nabs Homeland Security deputy press secretary

Maybe Brian Doyle was trying out some new tactics to stop terrorism that we aren’t aware of, you know, like trying to locate dirty bombs by sending sexually explicit messages and movie clips to folks. After all, he’s doing it on the taxpayers’ dime, so he knows what he’s doing, right?

When he wasn’t sending pornographic movies to and asking for explicit photos from a teenage girl in Polk County, a Maryland man was bragging about his job as a spokesman at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, law enforcement officers said.

The revelation – actually made to a detective posing as a 14-year-old girl – resulted in the arrest of 55-year-old Brian J. Doyle at his Silver Spring, Md., home Tuesday night, officials said.

During his Internet chats, Doyle quickly revealed his name and job, and he sent his office and government-issued cell phone numbers. The information allowed detectives to quickly verify Doyle’s identity, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office announced Tuesday night. Doyle moved quickly in other regards, officials said, sending enough sexually explicit messages and movie clips that they were able to secure a warrant for his arrest on 23 felony counts roughly two weeks after he responded to the detective’s profile.

The charges stem from Doyle repeatedly requesting the girl he was pursuing to purchase a Web camera so that she could send explicit images to Doyle, sheriff’s spokeswoman Carrie Rodgers said. Doyle promised to reciprocate, she said. He also sent numerous pornographic movie clips to the girl and used America Online’s Instant Messenger program to carry on sexually laced conversations, a news release stated.
