The SEC Porn Problem Is Still a Problem

So says SEC Inspector General David Kotz in his latest report to Congress. You'd think SEC employees would be smarter than this, knowing the heat is on and they're being watched, but obviously they aren't. You'd also think that after the first denial or two, they'd give up but no, that's not the case either.

Like this staff accountant:

Beginning on October 4, 2010, the OIG conducted an investigation (OIG-547) into information showing that an SK-14 staff accountant at SEC headquarters had used his SEC-assigned computer hundreds of times attempting to access Internet pornography resulting in access denials. The information obtained from OIT also showed that the staff accountant successfully accessed numerous sexually-explicit photographs from his SEC computer, including graphic depictions of sexual acts. Many of these sexually-explicit photographs were accessed during normal SEC work hours.

The staff accountant did not deny looking at porn and even agreed to testify as much but backed out at the last minute, going the way of the Fifth Amendment. This SEC staff member also reminded the agency that, er, looking at certain websites was part of his job. Did Youporn go public and no one told me?!

And then we have this SEC lawyer:

In one matter involving an SK-14 headquarters attorney (PI 11-05), the evidence showed that the attorney, while using his SEC computer, had received hundreds of access request denials for websites classified as pornography during a two-month period. A review of the information provided by the OIT Security Group also revealed many instances in which the attorney had successfully accessed pornographic and sexually-explicit websites from his SEC-assigned computer. The OIT Security Group’s analysis of Internet logs also showed that the attorney had performed searches for pornographic material, and that much of the inappropriate activity occurred during normal SEC work hours.

HUNDREDS! And yet he kept trying! He quit before the SEC could throw him out.

And then there was another SEC lawyer who also tried to access porn hundreds of times, except this one also managed to hoard 70 some photos of naked or partially naked women. Oh and let's not forget the SEC contractor who used his SEC computer to... just guess. Seriously.

Find the full report here. Don't ask me any questions about it, I'll be busy watching porn on my laptop, that I paid for, in my house, while not being paid to do work for a federal agency.

Jr Deputy Accountant

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.
