SEC Workers In Denver Disciplined For Porn At Work

DENVER (AP) – The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has counseled or disciplined more employees who accessed pornographic sites on government computers.

The Denver Post reported Tuesday that 33 SEC employees and contractors nationwide were investigated by the Office of the Inspector General for viewing sexually explicit sites at work from 2005 to 2010. The OIG report says many were senior-level employees.

In December, Denver attorney Kevin D. Evans’s Freedom of Information Act request for the names of the employees was denied.

In a letter dated March 3, the SEC responded to Evans by listing the offices of the employees. They were in Atlanta, Denver, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Fort Worth, Texas, and Washington, D.C.

A previous report said 24 employees who were investigated resigned, were suspended or disciplined.

    Channel 9 reported that a lot of these SEC employees were lawyers making upwards of $200k a year.

    The Channel 9 interview with Kevin Evan’s showed Kevin saying he’d be disbarred, fired, or reprimanded in some form if he billed his clients for time spent surfing the net for porn.

    Maybe I should show the attorney who is trying to fleece me for additional money he spent doing unauthorized work this story.

    How ironic that a thieving lawyer is ratting out his brethren.

    The Bureau of Reclamation in Denver reported 50 cases. It includes one a SES (senior Executive Service, $145,700 to $199,700), and one GS-15 ($122,064 to $155,500).
