Report: Female SEC Worker Caught Surfing Porno 1,800 Times in Two-Weeks

April 23, 2010

(ChattahBox)—Was there something in the water in the offices of the Security and Exchange Commission? Maybe the job of policing Wall Street crooks all day, when Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff operated right under their noses, triggered an uncontrollable obsession to view porn websites nearly 1,800 times in two-weeks, like one female staff accountant was caught doing. And last month, reports of another porno-surfing SEC employee emerged, with lurid details of numerous visits to tranny porn sites, to relieve the “stress” of his job, as the economy took a nosedive two-years ago. Oh, boy!

The Office of Inspector General’s report, released in 2008,was requested by Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa). However, why Grassley needed an official summary, when the entire report has been available online, since November 2008 is a mystery. Certainly, many Republican lawmakers were not pleased with the SEC’s recent lawsuit filed against Goldman Sachs for civil fraud. And they questioned the timing of the suit, alleging the suit was political, without any basis in fact, at a time when the Wall Street reform bill is being debated in the Senate.

According to the report summary sent to Grassley, which he promptly released to the press, besides the tranny porn guy, an additional 33 SEC workers used their work computers, during the workday, to view porn:

“During the past five years, the SEC OIG (Office of Inspector General) substantiated that 33 SEC employees and or contractors violated Commission rules and policies, as well as the government-wide Standards of Ethical Conduct, by viewing pornographic, sexually explicit or sexually suggestive images using government computer resources and official time,” said a summary of the investigation by the inspector general’s office.”

And among the eye-popping findings:

“A regional office staff accountant tried to access pornographic websites nearly 1,800 times, using her SEC laptop during a two-week period. She also had about 600 pornographic images saved on her laptop hard drive.”

“Separately, a senior attorney at SEC headquarters admitted to downloading pornography up to eight hours a day, according to the investigation.”

“In fact, this attorney downloaded so much pornography to his government computer that he exhausted the available space on the computer hard drive and downloaded pornography to CDs or DVDs that he accumulated in boxes in his office,” the inspector general’s report said.”

Right on cue, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), the ranking Republican on the House Oversight committee, who spends his days searching for some scandal to attribute to the Obama administration, has latched on to this report like a dog with a bone, using it as the basis to oppose the Democratic Wall Street reform bill:

“This stunning report should make everyone question the wisdom of moving forward with plans to give regulators like the SEC even more widespread authority,” he said. “Inexplicably, rather than exercise its existing regulatory enforcement authority, SEC officials were preoccupied with other distractions.”

The report also notes that “more than half of the workers made between $99,000 and $223,000.

SEC spokesman John Nester, said the porno surfers have either been disciplined or dismissed, and new rules have been put in place to combat inappropriate web surfing during work hours.
