New York, Feb 3 (ANI): It has emerged that more than 24 employees and contractors at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission have been investigated for porn surfing at work in the past two years.

According to the Washington Times, the report revealed that one SEC supervisor tried to look at porn on his computer more than 1,800 times over a mere 17 days.

"It was kind of distraction per se," the New York Daily News quoted the supervisor as telling investigators.

The inspector general's office released more than 150 pages related to the porn-surfing investigation at the SEC, though it would not release the names of the individuals it investigated.

The reason being it "could conceivably subject them to harassment and annoyance in the conduct of their official duties and private lives".

These porn-surfing SEC workers have been mentioned in all of the inspector general's last four seminannual reports sent to Congress.

"They're simply just stealing time," Allan Bachman, education manager for the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, told the paper.

"They're getting paid to do something that they're not supposed to be doing," he added. (ANI)
