The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commissionís inspector general says senior SEC employees spent hours surfing pornographic websites on their government-issued computers while they were being paid to police the financial system.

SEC Inspector General David Kotz said in a memo that The Associated Press obtained that the behavior violated both agency and government-wide ethics rules.

The memo lists 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.

The memo 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 was a response to an earlier request by Republican Sen.

I'll bet they only investigated those instances that were really over the top. I guess the SEC doesn't know how to track employee Internet traffic. :rolleyes:

What pisses me off is that not a damn thing will happen to them. They should be fired. When I worked for the state of LA looking at porn sites would get you fired in a heartbeat. Unions will protect them though.

probably not, thats why the Gov hires hackers to track and find other hackers. it's not hard to filter most of that shit. i can do it in about 30 secs if I wanted to.



but i don't :p :D :cool:
