What kind of fetish site has pictures of government vehicles?
The excuse of, "I read it on FederalSoup..." won't work. Please do your due diligence.

Was it at a Starbucks?

You are way too involved in other peoples' sh%T. Focus on you. I understand now why you have such a hard time in the workplace, and it's got nothing to do with nepotism or the fact you have a muslim sounding name.

I think it's the first rule of the internet... No matter what kind of freaky stuff you're into, there's porn sites catering to it.

And what kind of fetish sites is the OP visiting? Never mind, I don't want to know.

Absent other details, such as a prohibition on cameras at the work site, or the inclusion of something... I don’t see an issue with posting a picture.

Are you into hot government bureaucrats filing paperwork? Ohhh baby. You know you want to file your report into her records room! It's a 1000 pages!! But you better hurry because her work day ends at 3:00pm, no exceptions, and no overtime without prior written approval.

It's possible the OP was asking for future reference... Just in case they get a gov't vehicle.

I just checked my favorite camels-with-goats site and there's nothing there.

You’d be the last person I’d want as my coworker. Do you just go around looking for something on your coworkers?!

He seriously needs to give us more details, like what kind of fetish site was it. From what I get so far, he hanging out on his favorite fetish site, and he saw a post from his coworker with the truck. Beyond that we don't know anything. And we WANT to know. Many questions come up. For example, was this person of the appropriate sex for the OP (we don't judge) and are they totally hot? Or was it an "OMG I can't un-see that" sort of thing. Did they see YOUR posts too. Do you two have a sexy little secret you now share, perhaps at lunch time in the supply closet? (Or the back of a Government owned truck?)

Just one word of advice. Throw the stapler away when your done. Government property or not, no one should have to use it after that.

Actually, humor aside, there's a distrubing trend here. There's someone who he/she says is "always" at Starbucks, and now he/she is following someone's activities online. What else is the OP monitoring. Is the Starbucks thing and truck picture thing the same person? This is starting to sound a bit stalky. I've experienced one of those work place busybodies crossing the line into becoming a stalker, and it's scary.

Good call
No way I'd give that Splenda crap to any of my kids.
