SEC Soaking Up To Their Eyeballs In Porn, Can't See Fraud

ABCNews is reporting that “a new government report reveals that some high-level regulators have spent more time looking at porn than policing Wall Street.” It seems that the report, obtained by ABC News, says senior employees of the SEC spent hours on the commission’s computers looking at sites like naughty.com, skankwire, youporn, and others, thus clearly removing their only defense, the fact that “X” is right next to “C” on the keyboard.

Oh here’s the best part, one of the 31 staffers mentioned in the report, a senior attorney for the SEC, was actually spending “up to eight hours a day” surfing for porn, and when the hard drive on his government issued computer was full he “downloaded more to CDs and DVDs that accumulated in boxes in his offices.”

Another staffer, this one an accountant, apparently accessed pornographic sites 16,000 times in a month, says the report.

And how much does one make surfing porn for the SEC? Seventeen of the employees were “at a senior level,” earning salaries of $100,000 to $222,000 per year.

Looks like I’m in the wrong business.
