Homeland Security Dep. Press Secretary Busted in Child Porn Sting

A Deputy Press Secretary for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security was busted last week in a child internet pornography sting. He faces felony charges and has resigned his position, the department said.

Brian J. Doyle, 55, was arrested Tuesday, April 4 at his Silver Spring, Md., home. Authorities in Polk County, Fla., have charged him with 23 felony counts: Seven counts of use of a computer to seduce a child and 16 counts of transmission of harmful material to a minor, according to court documents.

The Washington Post reports that Doyle initiated sexually-explicit exchanges with a 14-year old girl who was really an undercover agent posing as the teenager:
Doyle allegedly sent pornographic movie clips, non-pornographic photos of himself and instant messages from his AOL account, the police statement said. The sheriff's office alleged that Doyle "on many occasions" instructed the undercover detective to perform a sexual act while thinking of him and described explicit acts he wished to perform.
