SEC workers viewing porn at work disciplined

DENVER – 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.
