A Department of Homeland Security employee is under investigation for posting to WikiPedia that House Majority Leader Republican Kevin McCarthy and Republican Representative Renee Ellmers are having an affair. Both are married. The Homeland Security employee is not being investigated for lying, but for using a government computer to edit the WikiPedia page, and possibly revealing confidential information.
“DHS has immediately launched an investigation into this serious matter. If it is discovered that a DHS employee, using Government property, is responsible for these alleged actions, immediate and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken,” said DHS spokeswoman Marsha Catron.
Yesterday, McCarthy unexpectedly withdrew his name for Speaker of the House, with rumors circulating that he withdrew in part because an alleged affair with Representative Ellmers was about to become public. Of course, McCarthy is the typical Christian, “Family Value”, Republican mouthpiece, who not only fears God but also Homosexuals and Muslims.
