SEC employees watched porn as economy crashed

SEC employees watched porn as economy crashed

An agency watchdog says senior employees of the Securities and Exchange Commission spent hours surfing pornographic websites on government-issued computers while they were being paid to police the financial system.
SEC Inspector General David Kotz says in a memo obtained by The Associated Press that the behavior violates agency and government-wide ethics rules.
The memo reports 33 violations in the past five years _ 31 of which took place in the two and a half years since the financial system teetered and nearly crashed.
It says one supervisory accountant looked at pornographic websites about twice a day and saved images on his SEC computer to view during work hours.
The memo is a response to an earlier request by Republican Sen. Charles Grassley.
