4. That, and the fact that the FBI is specifically concerned with whether someone

can be blackmailed. Any time you have a skeleton in your closet that might cause great embarrassment if it became public, you're blackmailable, which would make you a poor security risk. Rob Porter's lack of self-control seems to be limited to his close relationships with women. While this behavior is both reprehensible and indefensible, it does not seem to have bled over into his professional life, at least not yet. I'm not convinced that he really can't control his anger at all, but that he can't control it only with respect to a woman with whom he is personally involved. Maybe this comes from a sense of male privilege or his belief that he has an absolute right to dominate and control a woman - and his anger is triggered when, in his mind, she isn't submissive or obedient enough. His workplace behavior might have been, and apparently was, perfectly normal. He might never fly off the handle at work, even at a female co-worker. I suspect his anger issues have to do with women he thinks he "owns."
