Last year, an investigation revealed that there were 24 SEC employees and 7 employees who had been contracted by the SEC who were caught watching porn on work computers (one of whom admitted doing it for 8 hours per day). Now Denver lawyer Kevin Evans's letter requesting that the SEC release their names (the SEC refuses) via the FOIA has more details on the employees: 1.The locations the employees worked at were: Atlanta; Boston; Chicago; Denver; Fort Worth, Texas; Los Angeles; and Washington, D.C.

They are employed by the federal government. They were watching porn on the job for up to 8 hours per day every day. They were making over $200,000 per year plus benefits. None have been fired only "disciplined".

I wonder if the "discipline" included a bare bottomed spanking.

“Discipline” -they were forced to watch Pelosi sing “Happy birthday misther president” while doing a strip tease, their eyes taped open like that scene from A Clockwork Orange.

I suppose they consider the porn industry to be a major part of the economy, and they were just trying to help it thrive. < /s >

What gets me is these types of sites can be blocked by any competent IT group. The pubs should be asking why isn’t this being done?

It is amazing. Within the Air Force...it would have taken 90 days to prepare a case and go into a court martial....and you’d been given a dishonorable one. They’d have all the proof necessary and you’d be standing there with no excuses.

A public employee making 200,000 a year is pretty close to porn. What were they showing? A training film?

“None have been fired only “disciplined”.”

It is nearly impossible to fire a federal employee. You would not believe what they can get away with. I’ve seen cases of drug usage, theft, insubordination, and sleeping on the job. Nobody was fired.

The training film was “How to f**k the taxpayers”.

At least there is proper venting to keep the screen from fogging up.

I’m trying to find back-up for the over $200k. The highest I found in the GS workforce (GS-15/10)was $155k. The highest I could find for any gov’t employee was $199.7k and that was a level one executive pay (highest up in the WH type)

Both absolutely asinine.

Still, the $222k had to have included benefits (ridiculous as it is) or it’s wrong. Or, even better, it had to include political appointees.

Don’t almost all government employees get generous “bonuses” in addition to their base salaries?
