Springfield, IL city workers viewed porn, while on job

   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- New Springfield Mayor Frank Edwards says he plans to discipline dozens of city government workers who reportedly used city computers to view pornography while on the job.
   Edwards tells The (Springfield) State Journal-Register the improper use of computers was discovered after a computer at City Water, Light and Power locked up and an internal investigation was conducted.
   Edwards said he is suggesting five days suspension without pay for the workers, which is the maximum punishment,.
   He says about 50 workers appear to have been involved, and most of them work for CWLP. Edwards says the incidents occurred before he was selected as mayor last month after the suicide of former Mayor Tim Davlin.
