Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) says all when he complains that it is "nothing short of disturbing that high-ranking officials within the SEC were spending more time looking at pornography than taking action to help stave off the events that brought our nation’s economy to the brink of collapse."
That quote is from the Washington Post Federal Eye blog, which also says, "A new investigation by watchdogs at the Securities and Exchange Commission finds that dozens of agency employees used government computers to look at explicit images in the last five years."
The article also reports that: "A senior attorney at SEC headquarters in Washington admitted he sometimes spent as much as eight hours viewing pornography from his office computer, according to the report. The attorney’s computer ran out of space for the downloaded images, so he started storing them on CDs and DVDs that he stored in his office."
No wonder those folks also missed all the warning signs about the Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme.
