The SEC was responding to a new report from SEC Inspector General David Kotz that revives the details of senior agency staffers spending hours surfing pornographic websites on government-issued computers while they were supposed to be policing the nation's financial system.
SEC spokesman John Nester issued a written statement saying the memo by Kotz shows that every instance of inappropriate use of the Internet" was detected by the SEC's own surveillance and referred to the inspector general.
He went on to say, "Seriously folks, do you think senior agency staffers do any of the day to day work around here? We have the little people busting out the work. It really is the middle and lower echelon's fault that they didn't police the country's financial system correctly. Most of the days we had porno being watched, it was raining outside or extremely cold, so we couldn't be out of the office playing golf. So lighten up. Geez."
