SEC Was Wanking Off While The Economy Crumbled

A recent investigation revealed several Securities and Exchange Commission employees have been watching heaps of porn while getting paid to regulate the financial system. Some of the guys binging on porn while they were supposed to be regulating the stock market and preventing corporate abuses were making well over 200k a year.

Good work if you can get it. Here’s a little highlight of the investigation, via ABC News:

One senior attorney at SEC headquarters in Washington spent up to eight hours a day accessing Internet porn. When he filled all the space on his government computer with pornographic images, he downloaded more to CDs and DVDs that accumulated in boxes in his offices.

What we wanna know is – were the SEC staffers paying for their porn, or just downloading free content? Cause the former at least stimulates the economy. The latter just leaves everyone screwed.
