So widespread are the instances of illegal activities among FBI employees that the bureau has taken the drastic step of issuing a report detailing the spread of misconduct in an attempt to stem the tide.

From sexting to tax fraud, DUIs to secret surveillance of colleagues, the lurid and wide range of misconduct by FBI staffers over the past year was revealed Wednesday night in two quarterly reports published by CNN.

FBI assistant director Candice Will told CNN that the reports were issued to stem misconduct and that she hopes the newest reports can abet the "rash of sexting cases".
