Update On SEC Porn Surfing

Some findings by the inspector general’s probes. These findings are very shocking.

AP reporting:

A senior attorney at the SEC’s Washington headquarters spent up to eight hours a day looking at and downloading pornography. When he ran out of hard drive space, he burned the files to CDs or DVDs, which he kept in boxes around his office. He agreed to resign, an earlier watchdog report said.

An accountant was blocked more than 16,000 times in a month from visiting websites classified as “Sex” or “Pornography.” Yet he still managed to amass a collection of “very graphic” material on his hard drive by using Google images to bypass the SEC’s internal filter, according to an earlier report from the inspector general. The accountant refused to testify in his defense, and received a 14-day suspension.

Seventeen of the employees were “at a senior level,” earning salaries of up to $222,418.

The number of cases jumped from two in 2007 to 16 in 2008. The cracks in the financial system emerged in mid-2007 and spread into full-blown panic by the fall of 2008.

It may seem strange to look at porn while at work ( I know I think it’s). But, according to a survey conducted by Websense Inc.-16 percent of men with Internet access at work admit to looking at online porn while at the office.

SEC has had a difficult time lately. Remember the Ponzi scheme Bernard Madoff? Republicans are also claiming the SEC is politically motivated by suing Goldman Sachs. Oh and remember our economy collapsed? The inspector general’s findings come at a time when the SEC is trying to prove they can proved the tough oversight needed in our complicated economic system.
