Senior staffers among 31 who accessed sites with work computers

Computerworld - Several senior staffers at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) spent hours daily watching porn on their work computers even as the massive financial crisis was unfolding in 2008, according to agency's inspector general.



In a report prepared by SEC Inspector General David Kotz at the behest of Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), Kotz cited 31 investigations of workers who had violated SEC rules regarding the use of government computers and time to view pornographic and sexually explicit images. The probes covered a two-and-a-half year period dating back to 2007.

Seventeen investigations involved senior SEC staffers earning between $100,000 and $222,000 annually. In many cases, the Kotz's office obtained on-the-record admissions from the employees involved, though the report does not say how, or even whether, the employees were disciplined.
