Washington State Fires Six for Racy E-Mails

Who said government work was boring?

At least six Washington state employees who used their e-mail to send raunchy jokes, sexual overtures and even make plans for an orgy will be fired, the state Department of Labor and Industries said on Friday, adding that it is investigating 14 more of its workers to find out if they too abused their e-mail.

An agency of 2,700 overseeing worker compensation plans, L&I says it has uncovered hundreds of off-color e-mails, that, while not illegal, violated department rules on misusing state resources.
