At one time we held government attorneys to a higher it's a lower standard.

An unnamed Department of Justice (DOJ) trial attorney who “engaged in sex acts on a train” and assaulted a law enforcement officer must only complete 120 hours of community service, according to a DOJ Office of Inspector General (IG) summary of its investigation.
Local authorities charged the DOJ attorney with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and assaulting a police officer after the trial attorney refused to disembark and kicked a law enforcement officer removing the attorney from the train, according to the IG.
“The attorney’s actions violated state criminal law, federal regulations, and executive branch standards of conduct,” the IG said.
Since the IG didn’t reveal where the train sex or assault took place, local authorities reached an agreement with the DOJ lawyer allowing him to do community service in lieu of prosecution, according to the IG.
The IG investigative summary didn’t say whether the trial attorney still works for DOJ, and DOJ did not respond to a request from The Daily Caller News Foundation for comment on the lawyer’s employment status. (RELATED: Porn, Prostitution and Bribes: Eight Times The DOJ Let Bad Bureaucrats Off The Hook)
The IG referred its report to the DOJ for “further review and appropriate action.”
The DOJ attorney is not named because the department’s IG withholds employee names in its investigations. That’s a common practice among IGs, as TheDCNF has previously reported. (RELATED: Misbehaving Bureaucrats Protected By Watchdogs In Most Reports)
