Polygraph operator Charles Rahim, an Australian member of the American Polygraph Association (APA) who markets so-called "fidelity testing" to the Australian public, was caught in a hidden camera investigation asking examinees non-pertinent questions about the most intimate details of their sexual behavior. The Australian television program Today Tonight has reported Rahim to the APA, which promises to investigate. (It will be interesting to see what action, if any, the APA, which has a history of turning a blind eye to unethical behavior by members, takes.)

WoW !!

Polygraph in Australia just took a dive.
But to be fair, Rahim would have been exposed
as 'Looney Toons' whatever he was involved in.
What a zombie.

That's a good point. A pervert like him could turn up almost anywhere. The question is; why does it keep happening in the APA? An ACLU lawsuit in 1987 exposed polygraphers in North Caralina asking people questions such as "who was the last child that got you sexy." Don't forget about the fruit machine of the 50's; an extinct relative of polygraph.

I think the problem lies with Polygraph practioners that see themselves as heroes or guardians against all things evil in society. The APA certainly project that image to the public. Even in this report, the APA was sent up as a responsible self-regulating industry that will punish this pervert for tainting their good name.

In the end, there so busy looking for liars, cheats, spys, & other evil doers that they ignore the danger posed to society when their methods are abused. Whenever a guy like Rahim crosses the line, he can just give a big speech about how no lies can be tolerated, and he needs total disclosure, and maybe your just resisting because you have something to hide [note how Rahim asked the reporter if he was sexually attracted to him].

Remember the cautionary tale of Anikan Skywalker. You can't assume you're the good guy; that's how you become the bad guy!

Yet, if one really is the good guy, how does one make it known if one lacks the ability to pass a stress test when wrongly accused?

Polygrapher Charles Rahim is in the news again. He conducted a polygraph "test" for a radio program in which a 14-year-old girl was interrogated by her mother about sexual matters and disclosed on air that she had been raped when she was 12:

Kyle's Idol role in doubt

Luke Dennehy

August 02, 2009 12:00am

IAN Dickson and Marcia Hines, of Australian Idol, are expected to be in Melbourne on Friday, but there is a very good chance the show's third judge Kyle Sandilands won't be joining them.

Channel 10 confirmed yesterday that following the radio scandal during the week where a 14-year-old girl revealed on air during Sandilands' show that she was raped as a 12-year-old, they are reconsidering his role on the show.

Ten executives are having meetings this weekend to decide whether to remove Sandilands from the line-up of the show, which starts next week.

All the pre-auditions have been filmed, so dumping Sandilands would be a big risk for the network.

The stunt happened on Wednesday morning on Sandilands' and Jackie O's Sydney breakfast morning show, after the girl was asked by her mother during a lie detector test if she had been sexually active. She replied that she had been raped.

The man who conducted the lie-detector test, Charles Rahim, said he wouldn't have taken part in the radio stunt if he knew what the topic was about.

"I would never ask those sorts of questions of a teenage girl," Rahim told the Sunday Herald Sun's Wendy Hargreaves.

"I certainly wouldn't have agreed to do the test if I knew a teenage girl would be asked about sex.

"But nobody knew it would happen. The mother just threw the question in there.

"Now the Prime Minister is involved and it's turned into a big mess."



Audio of Charles Rahim's on-air polygraph "test" is available here:
