EPA Treats Hallways Like Taxpayers

There seems to be very little doubt about how the IRS feels about us and it seems the EPA has gotten their cue from them.
But you gotta wonder what the hallways look like at the regional office in Denver, Colorado  that would prompt them to send an email out about defecating in the hallways among other things.

EPA Employees Told to Stop Pooping in the Hallway
Environmental Protection Agency workers have done some odd things recently.
Contractors built secret man caves in an EPA warehouse, an employee pretended to work for the CIA to get unlimited vacations and one worker even spent most of his time on the clock looking at pornography.
It appears, however, that a regional office has reached a new low: Management for Region 8 in Denver, Colo., wrote an email earlier this year to all staff in the area pleading with them to stop inappropriate bathroom behavior, including defecating in the hallway.
In the email, obtained by Government Executive, Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor mentioned “several incidents” in the building, including clogging the toilets with paper towels and “an individual placing feces in the hallway” outside the restroom.
Confounded by what to make of this occurrence, EPA management “consulted” with workplace violence “national expert” John Nicoletti, who said that hallway feces is in fact a health and safety risk. He added the behavior was “very dangerous” and the individuals responsible would “probably escalate” their actions.~snip~
These are some of the folks who determine what is and what isn't appropriate for the rest of us to put in the air and water.
It's a good bet they were probably members of the occupy protest.
