I see.  I was asking because in this video from the February 2021 Washington DC Spy Museum Polygraph Discussion, the NSA polygrapher Thomas Mauriello said that a guy, during his polygraph session, confessed to cheating on his wife 30 years ago.  The guy even went home and told his wife of his past affair that night.  However it wasn't a crime and the guy passed his polygraph.

This is a Very Bad Idea and we advise against it in The Lie Behind the Lie Detector. Make no admissions.

I think most of us on this board will agree that a polygraph exam is like a police interrogation; the polygraphers want confessions, or disqualifying admissions.  Without a confession, your polygraph charts are subject to interpretation.  Has anyone ever tried to use the strategy of giving the polygrapher a confession that will not disqualify you?  For example, say the polygrapher says you are having trouble on the question "have you ever committed a serious crime?"  So you fake a breakdown and say that when you were a young naive 18-year old boy, your girlfriend was 17 and you had consensual sex and feel you broke the law because she was under 18.  Or confess that you have been lying to your family members for years by saying you like their cooking.  Or confess to taking prescription medication that was for someone else, though it was 11+ years ago (outside of the 10-year scope).  Maybe admit that you ran over a dog 11+ years ago, told the police, tried to find the owner, but were unsuccessful and since you love animals so much you were distraught.  But you really have to sell these confessions.  Like break down crying and say you feel so bad because you have been hiding these things for your whole life and are scared you will fail the poly and not get the job due to these deep dark secrets.  Then the polygrapher gets a confession and may ease up on the interrogation.  Your confession is not disqualifying, you end the interrogation, justify your spiked charts, and pass.  Will it work?

AntiPolygraph.org has obtained the attached two lightly redacted documents connected with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) action documented earlier in this message thread:

1. The complainant's 34-page "Response to United States Secret Service (USSS) Opposition for Reconsideration of Appeal #[redacted] Affirming a Decision for Summary Judgment to the United States Secret Service Without a Hearing" ("Response") dated 22 February 2021.

We are informed that the complainant, acting pro se, emailed this Response to the Secret Service's legal counsel, Steven Giballa, on 22 February 2021 and FedExed it to the EEOC on 23 February 2021.

2. The EEOC's 4-page "Decision on Request for Consideration" ("Decision") dated 23 February 2021, denying the complainant's request.

The complainant hypothesizes that the Secret Service's counsel, upon receiving the complainant's email on the 22nd of February, may have had an ex parte communication with the EEOC that resulted in the EEOC issuing its Decision the very next day, the 23rd of February, before the complainant's response had reached the EEOC.

Indeed, when the complainant's Response did reach the EEOC some time later, apparently after having been held up in a mail screening process (the FedEx packet bears a magenta Department of Homeland Security tape on one side), the EEOC refused to take delivery of it and sent it back unopened.

Photos of the Response as received by the complainant are attached.

Writer Tony Ortega has written a well-researched article on IIG's surveillance of Leah Remini on behalf of the Church on Scientology. It has been published on the news website, The Daily Beast:

In addition, Ortega has another article on IIG's surveillance of Remini that includes the relevant text messages on his Tony Ortega on Scientology website, here:

The Ribacoffs' legal woes have gotten a lot worse. As reported on the blog, at least three former employees have provided affidavits in support of plaintiff David M. Smith, and a memorandum in support of a motion for summary judgment includes seemingly incontrovertible evidence of fraudulent billing by the Ribacoffs' International Investigative Group.

You need an attorney, immediately!  Preferably, an attorney who knows the lie behind the lie detector.

In most jurisdictions, the standard of proof necessary to revoke probation is far less than beyond a reasonable doubt.  If you flunked the "test", you should take action immediately.

I am willing to help you or your attorney.  Please contact me privately if you want to discuss your situation.  Good luck.

The answer to your question will vary from state to state. In some states, failing a polygraph can lead to expulsion from a mandatory therapy program and in turn, a prison sentence. This was the recent experience of Benjamin Petty of Oklahoma, whose case is discussed on the blog here:

What are the possible repercussions? Polygraph results are not a form of evidence are they? If i failed my poly yet have nothing to hide how can they use a poly against me? I'm succeeding very well in my probation so why does it seem like they're phishing to find some way to get me in trouble? Are they able to evade the burden of proof and just get me in trouble for nothing?
